    The first Section 8 was a game that flew under the radar and got little notice and attention. The second game, Section 8: Prejudice, is scheduled to come out sometime during Q1 2011 (And we'll be sure to have previews and reviews of it, of course). However, developer TimeGate Studios feels very confident about the success of the franchise - confident enough that they're already working on the third game in the series.

    I predict a bankrupt developer in 2012. Scheduling a second sequel to a non-profitable franchise before the first has made any impressions can't be a good idea.

    Picked the original up from the Steam holiday sale. Like the gameplay a lot, its good fun, but there's a serious lacking of players and servers. Hopefully Prejudice attracts more players. As for building a steady franchise out of it, I think it's a little early for that.

    Sometimes I suspect there's some legal loopholes somewhere that allows devs to keep pumping out unsuccessful games while still maintaining a personal income. The guys who made Sacred 1 knew it wasn't a popular franchise, but they went ahead and made a sequel, went bankrupt during it's expansion, and are now making a third game under a new studio.

    We only know that the servers are fairly empty now (2 CoDs later, after all), we don't know how much money the game actually made so it may have been a success. Certainly doesn't seem like the kind of game that would require a huge dev budget.

    BU staff, wake up. You forgot posting that MNC will be in beta longer for some extra polish (link).

    Also; they have a write up of their experience with porting their game to the PC so far over at Penny Arcade.
