A sequel to mud-em-up MotorStorm has been officially announced.
In a press release during TGS, it was confirmed that Evolution Studios, purveyors of ace racing games, are making a MotorStorm 2. After the success of MotorStorm as a launch title, this comes as no surprise, but is still welcome news.
Hardly any details exist about the new game, but expect more of the same crazy physics and fun gameplay. And hopefully Evolution Studios will see it fit to include split-screen multiplayer this time? We can but hope.
Kaz Hirai announced at Sony's TGS keynote speech that the company had acquired Evolution Studios, ensuring that all future titles from the developer will be PlayStation exclusive.
We'll bring you more news as it breaks.

They have a good game to begin with, so they'll hopefully correct the minor flaws and make us a great game!

Kool Split Screen multiplayer. I was disappointed that the first motorstorm wasn't multiplayer. Should be good.

Blah, I'm not too keen on the first motorstorm, so I'm not really bothred about this game.

This game should be sweet. They dont have to spend as much time figuring things out this time around.
- 6:14am EDT - September 21st, 2007
let´s hope it isn´t just a small upgrade ...

I bet Phil Harrison is peeing on himself as I type! He loves Motorstorm!
- 6:43am EDT - September 21st, 2007
that's cool, now that they have more time to work on it. i can't wait to see what they can achieve
- 7:17am EDT - September 21st, 2007
well i love motorstorm, i own it and i like the idea of it, but for the second one, i hope theirs split screen, more levels, and more fighting on bike like kicking and that. cant wait, now lets hear resistance 2 getting announced.

Motorstorm was the sheeeeeeit. I even imported it from Japan when it first came out cause I couldn't wait to play it. The new game should be even crazier as they have had time to develop for the system.....and IMHO Motorstorm is loads better than dirt or sega rally revo. I mean, honestly.....with Dirt....you put a game out like that with the weakest online ever....wtf???? racing against other peoples times!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?! lame.

psn id: gingo.... maybe if this is a full game this time i may buy it, i mean not even putting split screen in a racing game that is just poor developing

nice to hear this hope it has some more maps and more cars to use ^_^

I have a rental account and rent all my games. I had Motorstorm for a month and when I post it back I started to get withdrawal symptoms. That was when Motostorm was first released and I still get the urge to play it, especially when I have been reminded of its existence.
I think I'm going to have to buy Motorstorm 2? I don't think the game will be in multiple different environments like in a rally game. So the setting could be on the moon, lol no really the setting in a tropics. We could race around the island in the crysis game, lol. The games visuals always look better in the tropics. The tracks will be sand, wet sand, further into the jungle roads would be made obviously and the roads would be hard soil to really muddy and further into the centre there will be avolcano with tracks made to race around it and the tracks will be rocky.

Hopefully this game will be more complete. MotorStorm wasnt bad, but it had too few courses and missed features such as time trial, and those things at launch.
