Blood Dragon 2?

So, here's the thing.  Yesterday was April fool's, my brain is confused and doesn't understand what is real and what is not.  With that said, there may be a Blood Dragon 2 in the works.  So let's go through the one or two reasons for and against this being real.

Blood Dragon was announced this time last year, leading to much speculation that it was fake but looked 
totally awesome.  That teaser however had some serious work put into it, much more that we have been given this time.  For this teaser we have been given a wallpaper in the background of a picture posted on twitter... not exactly definitive.

More info after the jump...

The title of the game 'Blood Dragon III: Vietnam War 2'  is completely ridiculous, and so, must be fake... right?  I mean, it's a pretty great name.  There is something Pratchett-esque about it; for one, some of his books sound like they could be sequels to Blood Dragon('The Science of Discworld IV: Judgment Day'), and he himself did say that his writing allows him " bend the universe around the story" and likes to have fun with his stories.

So, where did we get this picture?  Well, Dean Evans, Creative Director of Blood Dragon, posted this Tweet:

Firstly, that LP looks awesome.  I will never buy it but I am happier knowing that it is a thing that exists in this world.  Secondly, that wallpaper, with those robocop lookin things.  amirite.

After this tweet was posted Evans followed up with:

This has the same two legged robot-killers as the first one, which seem to be taken from Robocop, those aliens at the front look exactly like Giger's 'Alien' design.  Also, the creature to the right is an arachnid from 'Starship Troopers'?

If we look at this from a practical point of view though, Blood Dragon was a huge success and there is no real reason not to follow up with a sequel.
