Sony Liverpool Prepping New Wipeout?
Wipeout HD is still one of the best downloadable games available, which is why we'd be excited to learn about another series installment.
Evidently, a certain job listing at Wipeout developer Sony Liverpool's website hints at the possibility of a new racing project. It's a job for Senior Designer who will "work with a talented and experienced team on a high profile racing franchise." Well, what other franchise can they be talking about? Some time ago, we had heard that this studio was forced to lay off a bunch of people, but there were always rumors concerning more Wipeout entries. If you never got a chance to play Wipeout HD, you can now pick it up in Blu-Ray disc form; it includes the Fury expansion as well. Personally, this is one of my all-time favorite racing franchises; its fluidity and slickness have always been second-to-none, and if one is looking for technical proficiency, it doesn't get much better. So here's hoping a new Wipeout is on the way...perhaps one that takes full advantage of the PS3!
We'll let you know what we can find. For the time being, Sony has refused to offer any comment on the matter.
