Total Overdose 2: Tequila Gunrise is a cancelled open world action adventure that was in development by Deadline Games in 2006 for the PS2 and PC, but soon moved to next-gen consoles (Playstation 3 and Xbox 360) before being canned. The project was a sequel to the original Total Overdose, a combo-focused action game with over-the-top gunfights that was published by Sci Entertainment / Eidos in 2005 for the PlayStation 2 and XBOX.
Deadline Games started to work on an updated Total Overdose graphic engine to use it in this next gen sequel, but the game was never finished. It seems that their publishers were not interested in a sequel, so the team moved their resources on new original projects. As we can read from an old Gamespot interview with Deadline Games’s former CEO Chris Mottes:
GS: And can we assume that your next game is going to be a quality action title?
CM: I would almost guarantee it.
GS: Tell us what little you can about the project.
CM: It’s a game that is set in an environment similar to Total Overdose, although the project is very different. We’re actually, I have to say, not doing Total Overdose 2, which a lot of people seem to still assume, because unfortunately Eidos pulled out of that, and you know, once bitten, twice shy. So, the next project is an action game, and it’s going to be based on some really cool things that happened in the real world.
On May 2009, Deadline Games filed for bankruptcy, only a few months after releasing Watchmen: The End Is Nigh. The company has previously been reported to have been struggling to find new projects and publishers for their games. Shadow Hunter, Faith and a .45, Killing Pablo Escobar and Total Overdose 2: Tequila Gunrise, vanished with the closure of the studio.
Thanks a lot to Jonas Springborg and Adam Rishede for the help in preserving their artworks created for this project! Some more images are from Carsten Brandt’s website. All images are copyrighted Deadline Games.
Total Overdose wasn’t exactly a ‘GTA Clone’. It only had a similar art style, but was a lineair, combo-focussed action game.
Thanks for the correction Overdosed! I’m going to fix the article :)
well, total overdose was´t exactly linear, it was like GTA, you could go around in the city, do the mission and special missions.
the psp version, called chilli con carnage, a re imagination of the total overdose, was linear.
Here is the total overdose 2 sequel check out the total overdose2 HERE IS THE LINK:-

Total Overdose totally rocks. Never played a better game. All fun and action. Publishers and Deadline should really take it up for a sequel
After reading this page I am very sad because I am the person till today don’t know that TOD’s sequel is not done The people who loved games will never forget TOtal OVerdose and really want that if sequel is not done another game with the same adventure.
this game is awesome its my favorite game and will forever be so,and I cry that cancelled :( I hope ever to do
Total Overdose was one of the most fun games I’ve ever played – it even had that mental wrestler and zombie mini game in it. Sad to see no sequel :(
Another great game that not many people know about was No-one Lives Forever – but at least they made a sequel to that. Some of the funniest character conversations you can listen in on!
. .bang bang ! I jst luv dis thrilling. .game. . . .though its old bt i stil play it smday. . Plez make upto tod part 10. .plez. . Eidos u rock. .!
total overdose was the coolest game ever i was especting the second part(really badly) i really play it now also (sometimes)
You know what? We should make a fundraiser or something like that to gather enough funds for some video game studio to catch the attention and finally work on the game! That’s how some modern games are made and actually accomplished, thanks to fundraisers and stuff (sorry I forgot the name of it lol).
We look forward please get out of a total dose of 2 pc!!!
good job on cancel the game , keep canceling on new games because we got bored

Sorry for mistake(that i will buy)
J’avais joué à l’époque sur pc et franchement le jeu , ce jeu à percé mon enfance, je le finissais à répétition , j’adorais ça. Les années passées, Je suis attristé qu’une suite n’a jamais vu le jour, je regrette tellement même si je n’ai pas encore jouer à Chili con carnage. Si personne ne veut prendre le risque de finir la suite, un jour ou l’autre, un passionné terminera l’histoire de Tequila Sunrise, même si ça prendra du temps, j’y crois l’espoir fait vivre !
total overdose is the best game i ever played i can say that you can name the next game as the legend of Tommy
Time for someone to get that artwork and to make the most epic and overdosed fangame of all time.
The best action game i have ever played and i still play that game even after 13 years of it’s release… Please complete the sequel TOD 2..
Je jure que ce jeux m’a vraiment changer le cerveau je n’arrivais même pas à dormir jusqu’à ce que je finisse la dernière mission et maintenant je me demande pourquoi je fini assez vite je suis entrain de galérer car je jamais joué un jeux comme celui la Total overdose j’aimerais savoir si y a la suite car je ne vois pas un autre jeux qui peut la remplacer… pour le moment alors si quelqu’un a eu la suite qu’il me faire savoir s’il vous plaît..’????????????????????????????ce jeux la à vraiment de la puissance
how can i download total overdose 2
It would be great if the sequel is released.
Pls make tod 2 pllsss
