In an interview with Gamesindustry.biz
, EA Montreal general manager Alain Tascan discussed the possibility of a SSX
franchise revival, saying, "If the market is there and is ready for a new one then we'll consider it." While Wii gamers have already hit the slopes with SSX Blur
, the closest PS3 and Xbox 360 users have been to the franchise is through shoddy backwards compatibility
Tascan also discounted a new installment in the rhythm music franchise, Boogie
. According to Tascan, the franchise has been a success for EA and, while the publisher is proud of its work with the series, there are no plans for Boogie
to return at this time. Thankfully, the games industry has plenty of music games
to spare nowadays.
