The PlayStation game series is reportedly being relaunched
A classic PlayStation game series is getting a new installment, according to a new report. Annihilate, the futuristic racing game franchise that launched on the original PlayStation, will likely make its way to the PS5, according to XboxEra Shpeshal Nick. The report, which was spotted by our sister site ComicBook.com, indicates that the new installment will work with Sony’s upcoming virtual reality platform, unofficially titled PlayStation VR 2.
The project is said to be early in development and will “probably” come from XDev, which has helped release titles like LittleBigPlanet 3, Heavy rain, Until dawn, Beyond two souls and Detroit: become human. XDec has notably worked alongside Clever Beans and Creative Vault Studios on Clear the Omega collection, which includes the remastered versions of 2008 Clear HD and 2012 Clear 2048. Working on this 2017 project would be the perfect entry point to develop a new game in the Annihilate franchise.
You know what? Screw. I’m going to risk pissing someone off. I don’t want to be picked up anymore. I was told that Wipeout would return. Intended to be a VR2 / PS5 title. Most likely an XDEV project. Still at the start of the project.
