Since the closure of Studio Liverpool it’s been a dark time for any Wipeout fan. The folks who used to work there have been working on a new game, called Formula Fusion, that is exclusive to PC at this time. This had many people wondering where the classic futuristic racer will head to next? Who’ll take it over and, worst of all, will we ever see the franchise returning? According to Shuhei Yoshida there is some hope!
In an dsicussion with VG24/7 he said the following when asked if we’ll ever see a return of the Wipeout franchise:
[quote]Never say never. There are many IPs that we kind of stopped iterating with new games. One of the reasons is we always love to work on new IP.
From my standpoint I try to balance the number of games in a franchise. In the future there might be a chance to come back to a game like Wipeout[/quote]
There’s some hope in that statement, but if you’re a fan we’d not hold out for it anytime soon.
