You saw it at the press conference for Microsoft. Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 will be coming out in a month for the Xbox Live Arcade and will feature four player co-op. There will also be six different gameplay modes as well. Given how successful the first one was, I bet the new one will be pretty big as well especially with multiplayer baked in.
