Anyone who isn't ready to admit the Wipeout franchise are the most sophisticated and awesome racing games of all time need to stop reading this right now. I've been a fan of the series since my days as a youngin in de ol' naughties and I'll never stop being so. So it only logically follows that when I heard of the Sony Studio Liverpool disbanding I cut holes into my forearm and went into a Death Cab hole of depression (also known as as a DC-Hole). I spent many a time figuring out how to show my tribute to the legacy that is Wipeout and I routinely checked on any news of the franchise being picked up by any of the spin off studios that resulted of the shutting down of Studio Liverpool. Well, behold:
About a month ago, the Sixthaxis claimed that many games might be greenlit for the next wave of PS4 showcase titles. One of which being a new Wipeout that might fall into the hands of ( you guessed it) one of the spin off studios such as "Sony London, Evolution or Firesprite".
Hard to swallow? After All- rumors exist all the time. But what if I were to tell you +reaches for another link+ that artwork leaked showed concept for an updated Wipeout game before its demise?
Not so far-fetched now is it? A game with this much invested in development cannot simply fall through development cracks and disappear into eternal ambiguity. A game franchise like Wipeout has too much of a history and cult fan-base for any responsible Marketer to let go of- especially during a the start of a re-trending sci-fi/futurist movement.
