THQ and Black Forest Games appear to be teasing a Destroy All Humans! 2 remake in the latest trailer for 2020’s Destroy All Humans!
The game is currently 50% off on Steam, and the accompanying trailer to reveal the news (below) features a small skit at the end. In it, we can see Crypto-138 (the protagonist of 2006’s Destroy All Humans! 2) interrupting Destroy All Humans! protagonist Crypto-137.
138 is wearing the upgraded armour from the sequel and asks “are you done yet, 137?” referring to the fact that 137 is deceased and quickly replaced by 138 at the start of the second game.
In response, 137 says “wait your turn little tadpole, I’m only getting started.” A press release accompanying the trailer makes note of the unusual ending, suggesting that it may well be a concrete tease that a remake of the second game is coming, in the same vein as last year’s Destroy All Humans! Of course, there is the possibility that this is just an in-joke for fans, or that Crypto-138 DLC could be on the way instead. We’ve contacted the publisher for comment.
We reviewed the 2020 Destroy All Humans! remake, scoring it a 7 and calling it “simple but satisfying.” THQ Nordic is part of Embracer Group, which recently announced that it wants to create an archive of all video games. The holding company has 150 games in development at present, with 70 to be completed by March 2022.
