Carmageddon counter hints to a possible new game (http://www.dasreviews.com/das-game-news/carmageddon-counter-hints-to-a-possible-new-game/)

Wow. Few days ago we were expressing our desire for a true and proper remake of Carmageddonís first part and here are some actual news for a new Carmageddon game. Talk about coincidence. Although nothing is certain, there are hints that a new Carmageddon game might be revealed on June 1st.

Donít believe us? Head over then to Carmageddonís Official Site ( http://www.carmageddon.com ). As you will see, there is a counter that ends on June 1st. Which basically indicates to a possible new Carmageddon game.

We can only hope that this new Carmageddon game will go back to the franchiseís routes. We donít want zombies and floaty car physics. Give us a Carmageddon game that is similar to the one we grew up with. With lots of blood, the ability to dismember the pedestrians and proper Ė and above all fun - car physics.

If this is anything like 1 or 2 and NOTHING like 3, I will die a happy man.

Loved the 1st, game... make it like #1, we don't need to drive indoors and add LAN support... pretty hard to screw it up if you slap nice graphics on it and some new vehicles...

2 was the best. Best racing game ever in fact.

Rumors has it that this is not done by Square Enix (which acquired Eidos, the original publisher of Carmageddon). There was an open source game presented a little while ago that won a cease and desist at the time. Maybe they negotiated the rights?

Both 1 & 2 were a blast I can still remember being able to drive in to a football stadium, run over the players on the field and then right up in to the stands and plow in to the fans. :D

I also remember the game being banned in several countries because because of the violent content and in other countries they had to make it so instead of running over people you ran over zombies in order to sell the game.

It's going to be a PSN/XBL game (no word on PC release yet), due out next year.

Where did you read this? Press release just says being developed for digital download, meaning most definitely for PC also.

Eurogamer. The main one only mentions XBLA and the local XBLA/PSN.

Usually Digital Download means a small title for PSN and XBLA, Large companies rarely release small downloadable titles on PC.

Wow, some devs are full of fail sometimes. A new Carmageddon game would be great. They need to make a new cross-platform version and I'm sure it would sell boat loads. Maybe they just want to make FPS games and Carmageddon is too risky or something.

They're looking for a publisher and they have only recently gotten their rights back, so they probably just wanna start small.

Yeah I doubt they would want to make a full big budget sequel... the game wont sell that well, none of the titles in the series did. No clue why it was popular actually... they were pretty bad games.

The whole "legendary" status that this series acquired over the years might help them a lot. If the game is going to be any decent that is.

You guys are nuts. Carmageddon1 was and still is awesome; nothing quite like it to this day.

This new title is gonna be risky. They will piss off tons of fans if they apply the current modern ideals to it. At the same time they want it to sell a bunch too.

Will be real interesting to see what the game turns out to be. I'd be happiest with just a straight up HD remake of the first.

Ante up if you want a new game that they were going to make without kickstarter but hey, who am I to judge people that ask for money.
