Good news for the MotorStorm fans, MotorStorm 2 was confirmed by the creators at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) back on March 7th, 2007, a day after the American release of the first racing game. To quote:
“Proceeding the Phil Harrison Keynote last week, PSU ran into a few guys from Evolution Studios, whom all were wearing MotorStorm attire. After a little chit-chat about the keynote speech and thoughts on Sony’s recent announcements, we began to ask questions about MotorStorm and what Evolution Studios had next on their list.
‘MotorStorm 2!’ was the reply and its been in development for quite some time. Outside of announcing the title, the developers wouldn’t divulge into any other details, other than its being built on a revamped version of the original MotorStorm Engine.” — Via PSU
What kind of improvements would you like to see in MotorStorm 2? While a Time Attack Mode is being added via patch to the original, personally I think any sequel needs: a longer Single Player Mode, a Quick Race Mode, and 2-4 Player Offline Multiplayer!
