The Bulletstorm Detail That Forever Changed The Ending

Developer People Can Fly's work can be seen across a variety of quality first- and third-person shooters.

Besides the studio's extensive work on the Gears of War series and Fortnite, People Can Fly has delivered some impressive projects on its own. It created  a little-known FPS in Painkiller back in 2004. It also produced an off-the-wall FPS in Bulletstorm, which is considered a cult classic that sadly bombed when it came to its overall sales. At the moment, the studio is working hard to put out its latest project with the co-op third-person shooter Outriders.


In the case of Bulletstorm, pretty much everyone who played it is disheartened by the fact that they may never get the closure they want. That's because after the close of the game's explosive campaign, a major story development took place that seemingly signaled the arrival of a sequel.

Sadly, that important plot detail has left fans wondering about what could have been. Beware of spoilers ahead for Bulletstorm.

The cyborg cliffhanger that revived two characters will never be resolved

Bulletstorm's main hero is a foul-mouthed solider named Grayson Hunt. After coming to the realization that his old commanding officer General Victor Sarrano exploited him into murdering innocents, Hunt takes it upon himself to exact revenge on Sarrano.


Hunt eventually runs into Sarrano and finally manages to kill him in the most painful way possible. Before that final encounter takes place, the bodies pile up and one of Hunt's own teammates, Ishi Sato, meets his end. After the credits roll, an extra bit of dialogue can be overheard. Players come to find out that Sarrano has been brought back to life in cyborg form. And what's even more shocking is the fact that Ishi was also brought back — under the control of Sarrano's evil forces.

That cliffhanger obviously left the door wide open for a sequel. However, Bulletstorm's disappointing sales closed that door shut. People Can Fly would like to make another Bulletstorm, but it looks like that dream may never come to fruition.


Maybe Outriders will at least feature an easter egg that honors Bulletstorm in some way.
