We have been hearing a lot of information recently on the Sony PS4, largely due to the fact that the console is now expected to be unveiled at an event in New York on February 20. In the meantime, things have gotten a bit quiet lately on the Xbox 720 front, but we do have something potentially massive to bring you now, in the form of one game that could be launching with the system in 2013.
Although both next-generation consoles are thought to be releasing towards the end of 2013, there is still a possibility that we’ll have to wait until the following year for them to hit the shops. Nobody wants that to be the case though and this week we could have had the strongest indication yet that Microsoft’s next Xbox will definitely be out in 2013.
The image you see above is thought to be the first teaser image from Project Gotham 5, the next game in Microsoft’s successful racing franchise and a game that could now be released as a launch title. The game is thought to be in development by a new studio called Lucid Games, who are comprised of ex-staffers from Criterion and Bizarre Creations and have acclaimed racing titles such as Burnout, Need for Speed and Blur under their belts. Not to mention previous PGR development duties as well.
Information uncovered on Neogaf references a LinkedIn account of one of the animators of Lucid Games who has apparently gone on record to say that they are working on a soon to be announced game. Visting the products section of the Lucid Games website will give you a visual on the image above, and it’s interesting to note that the caption supplied with the image states ‘Sky Light‘.
Is Project Gotham 5 going to be subtitled Sky Light, or are the two projects completely different from one another? Either way, the image confirms that a new racer is coming in 2013 and it looks like Microsoft are going to drop the Xbox 720 and this game during the same period.
What is your reaction to this? Do you have fond memories of the Project Gotham racing series or not?
