Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Pushed Back
One of my favorite games of 2012 was the indie-title Hotline Miami. It featured intense, fast, overhead gameplay mechanics, which was mixed in with 16-bit graphics, and a top-notch soundtrack. So, it’s no secret that I’ve been anticipating the sequel for a while now. But unfortunately I’m going to be forced to wait a little longer then I expect.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number won’t be available to purchase until late 2014 or sometime in early 2015, which would mean it’s been pushed back by a few months. According to the official Twitter account for the game, the sequel isn’t quite polished enough, so some tweaks are needed.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is still getting some final tweaks and polish, expected to be ready for late 2014 or early 2015.

In the original Hotline, players took control of a unnamed male, which fans of the title refer to as Jacket. Jacket is haunted by images of three masked strangers who repeatedly talk about Jacket’s personality and his questionable actions. As the game progresses, Jacket receives messages on his answer machine, that tell him to make delivers, which usually entails of him commenting murder against gangs and mobs. As the game progresses, you start to learn how the story isn’t told in a truthful way, and the narrative is told out of order.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number’s events are after the first game. It will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Mac, Windows and Linux.
