Nah, Frictional is better than that. There is definitely will be good connection and reference to already built basis.



They're better than that? Well they wouldn't go in the other direction, since the purpose of most sequels is to out-do yourself, or improve upon/build upon the story, and who would want to see someone weaker/dumber than the previous antagonist?



It could very well be someone who decided to continue Alexander's work, or like the one post just said, more than one person... taking torture for vitae beyond the one/few at a time like in Amnesia




Better in setting up the plot and the story. I' by all means, have nothing against teh fact that you may enjoy cheap continuation, but I'd prefer something sane and reasonable.



Sane and reasonable when discussing magic orbs and a non-existant vitae substance?

Yes? I was talking about aspects of a universe and setting, the consistency of it, not about realistic re-presentation. When the continuation fits well and sand and reasonable in the same setting - this what makes it successful. Just take a look at how small amount of good sequels in videogame world and WHAT exactly ruins them and you will understand what I mean.

To put it simple: it will be boring and lame if there is just another almighty prototype of Alexander will appear and Daniel will have to deal with him, basically repeating the story in some conceptual aspects of the original. But if they manage to introduce a bit renewed concept and gameplay/storytelling (and a new story of course) with heavy and numerous references to Amnesia - this would be just great.
