Since it’s release back in 2011, Ernest Cline’s nostalgic Sci-Fi novel ‘Ready Player One’ took the world by storm and has now been made into a Steven Spielberg production, soon to be in cinemas.  The book has over 400 pop culture and historical references built in to its 119,040 words.

If you’ve never read Ready Player One, it’s a must read! Get it here. You can also get Ernest Cline’s other more recent science-fiction novel Armada here.

When the movie screenwriter working on Ready Player One movie Zak Penn was asked if he knew any information about a potential sequel, he told Den Of Geek:

“Ernie’s working on a sequel to it [Ready Player One], and it is one of those great ideas that has endless possibilities. And to a certain extent, the longer it exists and the more Ernie thinks about it, the more he comes up with.”

This has got us thinking about a return to the OASIS. Read below about potential story-lines.

So what could a sequel even be about? The book had a pretty solid ending with all story-lines coming at a close and no serious cliff-hangers.

The big red button? When Wade finds the egg and speaks with Halliday, he shows Wade the ‘big red button’ which he says, when pressed, the whole OASIS is destroyed completely. Surely a story-line surrounding that would make for a great sequel? Maybe somehow a user manages to press the big red button? It’s all questions really.

With there being so much talk of a sequel, wouldn’t a prequel make for great entertainment too? There’s so much backstory with Halliday, and Kira, and obviously Ogden Morrow, the co-creator of the OASIS.

This may be a long shot, but Ready Player One in the perspective of our favorite characters could work. Art3mis has a good story as well as Aech.
