For the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2019 in June Neat Corp announced Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvency, continuing the story from the 2018 original whilst updating the gameplay thanks to a collaboration with Fast Travel Games. Today, the pair have confirmed a release date, and its arriving just in time for the festive season.
Designed as a self-contained videogame where you don’t need to have played the original, Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvency still features that stealthy gameplay the experience is known for. Offering new locations, enemies and gadgets, one of the big inclusions is the bow, a weapon Fast Travel Games is particularly known for thanks to its own VR title Apex Construct.
“Working on Budget Cuts 2 has been an amazing journey, both into dreams previously left in the past and for hardware of a future that we have finally reached. We couldn’t be more excited to let the final chapter of the story out there, and we just can’t wait to see our fans get their hands on it!,” says Jenny Nordenborg, CEO at Neat Corp in a statement.
Erik Odeldahl, Creative Director at Fast Travel Games, adds: “We’re happy to invite players back into the world of Budget Cuts. This time we let them sneak and fight their way over rooftops, through factories and looming skyscrapers, one robot murder at a time. I can’t wait to see what players think of this larger world to play in!”
Having previewed Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvency at Gamescom 2019 VRFocus found that: “The collaboration between Neat Corporation and Fast Travel Games certainly seems to be paying off, with Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvency offering a greatly improved experience. With a launch expected later this year the sequel turnaround has been quite rapid, however, the quality of the videogame shown didn’t feel rushed.”
Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvency is scheduled to launch on 12th December 2019 supporting Oculus Rift/Rift S, HTC Vive and Valve Index. You can Wishlist the videogame on Steam or pre-order the title for £22.99 via Oculus Store. VRFocus will continue its coverage of Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvency, reporting back with any further updates.
