A few days ago, a series of tweets from the director of the Zero Escape series, Kotaro Uchikosh, painted a pretty bleak future regarding the future of the series. The main issue seems to be the apparent lack of commercial success of Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward (and its prequel 999), which has resulted in the top brass (i.e. the suits and ties with the money) not willing to finance a potential sequel.
With such bad news being dropped on such a volatile social media outlet, fans have reacted swiftly to support this special series in the form of a social media campaign and petition. Supporters of Zero Escape have united under the banner of “Operation Bluebird”.
What they plan to do with this social media campaign has yet to be announced as they will be sharing more information on their plans and goals soon. At this stage they have a Facebook group which already has 5000 likes, and so if you’re a fan of the series then head on over to the official Operation Bluebird page to show your support!
