Midway has said that it is currently looking into the possibility of developing a sequel to its 2007 action title, Stranglehold.
Speaking to MCV in light of the publishers Gamer’s Day event last week, International Executive Vice President, Martin Spiess, commented:
“That's actually a discussion we're having internally right now. I think we have built a great level of brand equity with Stranglehold and that's something we shouldn't give up on."
"We are looking into various possibilities in order to sequelise the franchise. News will be announced soon in regards to it,” added Spiess.
Stranglehold was released in late 2007 for the PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360. The game is a collaborative effort between Midway’s Chicago branch and director John Woo, and servers as the sequel to Woo’s 1992 action film, Hard Boiled.

so long as the game is alot more steady in the framerate and actually makes the PS3 lead console I think we're good

psn id: gingo... the game had a lot of potential but still a few flaws but if they get those ironed out a sequel could be quite interesting

I only ever really played the ps3 demo and beat that a few times, its a fun game but I just couldnt justify spending the money on it.

I think the game can be pretty good now that they have more experience with the hardware. I'd pick it up if it came out.

The first game wasn't too bad, fun at times I wouldnt buy it but I would be interested in playing a sequel.

Demo seemed solid, but I have too many other games on my list to pick this one up right now.
