Cut the Rope is one of the most popular mobile games out there, and even though it's been a few years since it's release, it still remains a game that people will long remember. However, the developers of the game, Zeptolab, aren't done just yet. It turns out they're planning on releasing four new games by the end of the year, starting with a possible Cut the Rope sequel next month.

The co-founders of Zeptolab, twin brothers Efim and Semyon Voinov, spoke with Polygon about the dev team's upcoming plans throughout 2013 and said that out of the four games, some will be related to Cut the Rope and some won't, but they didn't go as far as saying what the split would be -- perhaps it'll be two-and-two or maybe just three-and-one.

The brothers also noted that while they want to release "tens or twenties of titles every year," they want them to be good first and foremost, meaning that the development team focuses more on quality than quantity. However, Zeptolab wants to keep its focus on mobile devices for the time being, but expanding out to consoles is certainly a possibility for future titles.

Zeptolab started out with only Efim and Semyon Voinov developing Cut the Rope. The studio now has around 60 employees that span across three continents. Cut the Rope, which was released back in 2010, has seen over 300 million downloads since the game's initial release, which definitely isn't up there with Angry Birds, but it's certainly still a respectable statistic.
