Yesterday I reported on some news surrounding PlatinumGames' ASTRAL CHAIN title reportedly being developed as apart of a trilogy of games. That news has now been confirmed to be incorrect.

First off, the original news about ASTRAL CHAIN being the first game in a trilogy of titles came from IGN Netherlands. IGN Netherlands reported that PlatinumGames' Takahisa Taura said that if ASTRAL CHAIN was a commercial success that two more titles would follow. It turns out that this was a complete misinterpretation, and nothing has been suggested as such.

Takahisa Taura has recently cleared up the confusion through Twitter and IGN Japan where he denied the claim of a possible trilogy and reaffirmed what he actually meant. Here is his updated statement: "The article mistakenly reported that "Astral Chain is developed as the first part of a trilogy". What I actually said, and nothing more, is how in my mind I think about many things when developing Astral Chain, to the point that it could get expanded with 2 other games or more."

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
