ctr2logoIf you've been living under a rock for the past three years, there's a chance you might not have heard of the Cut the Rope series. Actually scratch that – even from under a rock it's pretty much guaranteed you're familiar with Om Nom and his candy-eating antics. Given the insane success of the Cut the Rope games, it's not surprising that a sequel is in the works, but just to make things official developer ZeptoLab has confirmed that, yes, Cut the Rope 2 is a real thing we'll be playing at some point this holiday season.

You could argue that Cut the Rope has already seen a sequel, and you'd sort of be right. The original Cut the Rope launched in October of 2010, and its success led to a follow-up title called Cut the Rope: Experiments in August of 2011. That game was similarly successful, and brought forth yet another spin-off called Cut the Rope: Time Travel, which hit in April of this year. Cut the Rope 2, however, is an actual true and proper sequel to the original, for whatever that's worth.

Unfortunately, this is the worst kind of new game announcement as it lacks any real details aside from the pretty logo you see above. However, Polygon quotes ZeptoLab's CEO Misha Lyalin as saying "Cut the Rope 2 is a massive step forward for the game. Amazing graphics, gameplay and characters drive a brand new experience that fans are going to love." Polygon also notes that Cut the Rope 2 will feature "new characters, tweaks to the gameplay mechanics, interactive environments and a brand new storyline." It sounds like it will be another winner in the Cut the Rope series, so keep an eye out for more details to be revealed soon.

    And it will be free to play (probably)

      Assume the worst, hope for the best.

      • NickyNichols

        The worst being Madden, the best being PvZ2

      • runliketurtles

        Umm. No. The best involves something that isn't freemium garbage.

      • themostunclean

        Well PVZ2 was far from garbage. It was a complete package so I could see that as being a best case for a free game.

        Best case in general, of course, is premium.

      • cozmic0

        Umm. No. PvZ2 is not a freemium garbage. Infinity Blade 3 is a premium game yet it also has IAP on the same low level of intrusiveness as PvZ2. Would you call IB3 a premium with IAP garbage too now?

    • themostunclean

      No other CTR iteration has been free to play so let's just hope they stick with that.

    • TeddyNYC

      I really hope not.

    • Dfly team

      With the trending of new hot games like this, I believe that this one will be free for download and Zentolab will sell its items in game.

  • Jetjet

    Oh what an unsurprising surprise !

  • vic_viper_001

    If this turns out to be another freemium game, I swear I'm gonna grab the first person I see and puch them in the face!

  • http://ask.fm/MidianGTX MidianGTX

    It's gonna have to be a departure from the first game. I loved it at the time, but by now I just feel like I've already done it. Too similar and it won't stir my interest at all.

  • ineptidude

    But... They still aren't done adding levels to the first one I thought...

  • Deixa

    There might as well be Angry Birds 2 then even though there's about 5 different games out there already.

  • Taclys

    So... Christmas, time machine, and experiments didn't count as a sequel? Huh. Well, I love Cut the Rope, so I'm looking forward to it!

  • blakedaking

    I am also assuming it will be freemium.
