Hydrophobia was a game that saw rather mild reception from the gaming community with middling reviews that hardly placed the game in a stellar light. Dark Energy Digital, the studio that developed the game, didn’t help matters by exploding at websites that criticized their game but tried to make some changes to the game to help make it more player friendly.
Despite Hydrophobia’s lukewarm reception the plan for the game was the creation of a trilogy and it appears the next game in the trilogy is being developed now, or at least has a name. The Australian Government’s classification website has placed up a listing for a game called Hydrophobia Prophecy. The listing shows that Dark Energy Digital will be developing the title while Microsoft Game Studios will be the publisher and little else. We can probably expect an announcement some point next week from Dark Energy Digital about this listing.
