They could probably make a prequel if they wanted to. The first Descent apparently made almost 60 million off of a 3.5 million dollar budget. The second one cost something like 7 million and only made like 15 back. Still a 200% return on investment, but it did not perform nearly as well.
Yeah, it's been so long since I watched them.
There is still room for a prequel to be made if they really wanted to, right? Or did the second one not perform so they've just left it alone for now?
And yeah, I'd love for them to do the prequel. In the first one they say the hooks and gear or whatever they find have not been used for over a hundred years, so it would have to go way back. Like early 1900s, which could either be really cool or really dumb. I'm not sure which :lol
Either that, or at the beginning of the second one, they come down through an old mine and then find a tunnel that's all boarded up that says "Danger Do not enter" presumably put up while the mine was in service. Doing a prequel set in the 70s/80s when the mine was in service could work well.
