Earlier this week, a Twitter account titled JacketIsNotDead – a reference to Hotline Miami’s protagonist – posted a reside-action teaser video promising that a longer trailer was “coming quickly.” Fans wondered if that meant a Hotline Miami three announcement was incoming, but it turns out this was all just a prank.
“This is a quite cool fan film (or teaser for one particular perhaps) but rest assured there is not a different Hotline Miami game in improvement,” the series’ official account tweets. The original teaser that launched all this has due to the fact been deleted, but the JacketIsNotDead account has due to the fact detailed specifically what occurred.
JacketIsNotDead says “This was a prank that went way, way, way additional than I ever believed it would,” in a now-deleted tweet (by means of GamesRadar). In a far more current adhere to-up, the account confirms “there is NO Hotline Miami three announcement” and “there is NO Hotline Miami film coming out.”
Alternatively, “this was just a bit of entertaining that was developed in significantly less than an hour that was then fully forgotten about for 24 hours. I vastly unestimated the reaction as I suspect individuals would’ve accomplished their study. I was incorrect. And I’m sorry if I’ve hurt the Hotline Miami community’s feels!”
The original video employed in the teaser is almost 5 years old, and comes from a YouTube filmmaking group named Huckbros Nitro. You can watch the original video above.
The developers of Hotline Miami have emphasized a lot of occasions more than that they have no plans for a third entry in the series. ‘Never say never’ and all that, but if you are holding your breath for Hotline Miami three you are in all probability going to be left gasping for air.
