[QUOTE="Ghost-Rhayne, post: 5910833]Awww good! I hope some of the Liverpool guys found a nice home where ever Wipeout was given. I don't think Sony ever had the intention to scrap the IP. Next Wipeout will be PS4 @ 4k resolution lol.[/QUOTE] I think Evolution Studios would be a good developer for this series.

I disagree, I dont believe Evolution would be a good dev for the wipeout series. Not a big fan of the motorstorm series tho

UPDATE 1: In the moments since publication MCV has been contacted by two sources who claim that Evolution is not the new WipEout developer. We will await an official confirmation.
UPDATE 2: Sony has responded with "no comment".
Interesting.

If this is true this is the best news I have ever heard in my life, seriously love WipEout and I think Evolution is the perfect ( as well as most obvious choice) studio to do the series justice

[QUOTE="Bio, post: 5910870]I didn't even know WipEout died.

Didn't WipEout have a Vita release?[/QUOTE]

Yeah it was the last game studio Liverpool released before they got shut down by Sony

So long as it is heavily influenced by the heads of Psygnosis I don't have a problem with this. The more WipEout the better!

This. Followed the series from day one and it has evolved into one of the best if not the best racing series ever, however if not handled correctly it could become a big cheesy mess.

If this is true, I might finally have reason to turn on my PS3. It's been disconnected for a like 6 months at this point.

[QUOTE="AaronSOLDIER, post: 5911123]Of course they will, probably most of Studio Liverpool have moved to Evolution at this point and will put out both MS and WipEout titles in the future.[/QUOTE]

I hope so. Because Evolution Studios themselves...I have little faith in those guys.

Why? IMO MotorStorm Apocalypse was the best in the series and can't understand why people dislike it so much other than the fact that it sold poorly (mainly due to the events in Japan at the time which forced Sony to not advertise the game and not release it at all in Japan).

[QUOTE="mickice, post: 5912088]The question is, where can WipEout go from here? I think the series perfected and peaked with the last Vita release.[/QUOTE]

You wont know until you play something better :p


But it's not like WipEout games come out incredibly often, so we can use a break til the PS4

I disliked the setting, and all this supposed destruction going on with the city seemed so canned and forced. I got no thrills out of it whatsoever.

I would even say I prefer the graphics of Pacific Rift over Apocalypse.

Anyway I can't say I rank the Motorstorm series very highly overall anyway. This is why I'm not a fan of Evolution studios.

I agree, but I thought this thread was about WipEout :p

If evolution do pick up te franchise do they get all the tech and assets and ears of work that studio Liverpool have done? Or would they just pick up the name and have to reboot it?
(my knowledge on this kind of thing is limited)
