XboxEra’s Nick Baker has claimed via sources that the Czech branch of Mafia developer Hangar 13 is beavering away on Top Spin 5.
While nothing official has been confirmed yet obviously, Baker seems to think that we may hear about the game next year, so it sounds like it’s still in the early stages of development. Here’s what he had to says:
I don’t want to get anyone too excited about this, because remember a lot of this stuff is never hundred percent. It’s all rumors and mumblings and stuff that we hear. I’m hearing that we may be seeing a new Top Spin game. I think this would be Top Spin 5.
So, yes, at the moment the rumor is that Hangar 13’s Czech team I think might be working on a Top Spin tennis game which we would most likely hear about next year.
The Top Spin franchise hasn’t been seen for more than a decade, with the 2K Czech-developed Top Spin 4 launching in March 2011 for PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360.
In related news, the main branch of Hangar 13 is supposedly working on the next instalment in the Mafia franchise, which is said to be set in Sicily and will act as a prequel to the previous games.
