Rumour: Project Gotham 5 linked with UK studio

Postby sonic_uk » 06 Feb 2013, 11:57

That would be great if they did make a Pgr5. I thought the series was dead after 4 when the studio closed, so this is encouraging news. I really enjoyed the Pgr series (and the game that spawned them - Metropolis Street Racer) and I really loved the weather effects in Pgr4 as well.

Great news, genuine cars, genuine streets, genuine racing.
I hope it goes back to its MSR roots, day night cycles, weather and seasons.

That picture has been on Lucid's site for a couple of months now. I did think PGR5 when I first seen who Lucid consisted of and the screen that was published on their site, but we will have to wait and see I s'pose.

I would love to see another PGR game, as I have owned every game since its inception on the dreamcast under the MSR moniker.

I would be a lot happier if they called it MSR2 and ecstatic if it was released as a launch title for the Dreamcast 2!!!

Fairly sure that MS own the PGR name so, unless they sign with MS again, that's unlikely. Sega retained the MSR name. Much as I'd love it to be Blur 2, I suspect it'll have a new name but be similar to PGR, and be multiformat, hopefully!

For me, it wouldn't be a proper Xbox without a new PGR game. I bought the original just to get my hands on PGR and Halo, likewise the 360 for PGR3. I still play PGR4 every now and again.
Wha's in cherge?

Hold up, PGR just a generic racer? Is it to much to ask for him to be banned and removed from the internet altogether, or at least to be publicly flogged!?
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

I'd rather Blur 2 too. Won't happen though. A family member works for Lucid and was one of the main programmers at Bizarre, but he never shares s**t!
