Following ‘Dungeons’ cancelation, new evidence suggests Infinity Blade 3 in the works

Following months of silence, Chair co-founder and Creative Director Donald Mustard announced last month that ‘Infinity Blades: Dungeons’ had been canceled. Rumors about the game had been bouncing around since it debuted onstage at Apple’s iPad 3 event.

But it doesn’t look like fans are going to have to mourn the title’s demise for very long. According to a Senior QA Tester’s LinkedIn profile, Infinity Blade-creator Chair looks to be in the middle of either development or beta testing a sequel to the popular game…

Gaming site Polygon points to the find in a Kotoku piece:

“Chair Entertainment is developing Infinity Blade 3 for iOS, according to the LinkedIn profile of one of the developer’s senior quality assurance testers.

While not an official announcement — nor much of a surprise, considering the Infinity Blade series surpassed $30 million in sales more than 18 months ago — the existence of more Infinity Blade lines up with a recent tease from Chair co-founder and creative director Donald Mustard.”

And here’s a screenshot of the referenced LinkedIn profile:

Following the success of Infinity Blade 2, Epic Games president Mike Capps took the stage during Apple’s iPad 3 event last March to show off the prequel ‘Infinity Blade: Dungeons.’ A demo of the game was played to a number of oohs and aahs from the audience.

But after a few months, it appeared that the ‘coming soon’ launch date was a bit ambitious. And eventually the project went from shelved to canceled. Chair’s Mustard did say during a recent podcast, though, that they still had plans for the Infinity Blade franchise.

There’s no word, of course, on when a new IB title will be announced, but Apple’s anticipated fall event would sure make a nice platform.

      Yeah I find the games to be quite overrated now. People seem to like them but some praise them and I think it’s really just because of the graphics which are really impressive for a mobile device but gameplay was fun the first time but is now boring and repetitive and overplayed in pretty much every fighting game on iOS now. It needs something new to catch my attention. Dungeons was something new and exciting from Epic but now it’s gone and I’m really disappointed. Oh well another Infinity Blade that will be marveled at for a month or two and then forgotten until the fourth game is announced.

    Just excited to see what’s next on the history, could Siris and Raidriar team to defeat the Worker? Or what’s going to happen…

    Oh wait, I guess you will play as Isa to rescue them or something, I dunno…

  • Ryan

    smart. going back to old reliable.

  • Steven Cannan

    I want this game on android anybody think that’s possible? I mean theres that epic cartel….

    • StarViruZ

      Unfortunately, there will never have an android version because it’s exclusive to iOS. Most of cool games comes first to iOS and also may be iOS only. Just like Limbo, xCom, Deus Ex (android version TBD) and many more…

  • n0ahcruz3

    If blizzard would just release a full blown diablo for ipad then its game over for infinity blade lol :P

  • hardlord999

    This is good news. What would make it better still is if its coded to support a control pad of some description..

  • Kay

    I prefer Bloodmasque. The story is better.

  • Pedro Gonsalez

    Sweet! Price it at $5 and with no IAP and I think we have another clear winner :)

  • Dani Hayes

    “Infinity Blade 3″ could just mean I.B. Dungeons.

  • inf3rn0

    Kinda sad “Dungeons” got scrapped, really preferred the gameplay that was shown to the now boring and repetitive I.B 2 gameplay.
