The Purge franchise skipping a 2015 release

It seems Universal has decided against making The Purge an annual event. The studio released a statement that the next installment of The Purge won't appear until July 1, 2016. That puts it just before the Fourth of July so they will have a chance to make some decent money at the box office.

The Purge began back in 2013 and introduced us into the near future where the United States has created an annual "purge" where all crimes are legal for a 12-hour period. Those choosing to purge can rape, murder, stalk, hurt, burglarize, and more during the night to whomever they choose. The films have spawned Halloween Horror Nights mazes at Universal Studios parks as well as a road tour last summer.
