Last month, we told you about the rumors that had been circulating regarding a possible new game in the Carmageddon franchise. A countdown on the game’s official website ended this morning and Stainless Games officially announced this morning, that they are working on a new downloadable iteration of the series, for release next year. You’ll recall that they were the development studio that worked on the first two titles in the franchise. It seems like they purchased its rights from Square-Enix, because that powerhouse publisher/developer isn’t linked to the site anymore.
Release platforms for the upcoming title were not revealed, though the game’s site refers to it as being, “multiplatform motoring mayhem.”
“All the laughs, the crazy power-ups, and extreme destruction will return,” said Stainless Executive Director Neil Barnden. “We will make sure the existing fans get what they want and expect from a Carmageddon game, and a new generation discovers the delights of sliding into a Cunning Stunt.”
