Stainless Games, developers of the first two Carmageddon games, are now in charge of the franchise, and are working on a new downloadable game for release next year. The title, Carmageddon: Reincarnation, shows Stainless's commitment to the word "car," if nothing else. Platforms weren't named, but the official Carmageddon site calls it "multiplatform motoring mayhem."
"All the laughs, the crazy power-ups, and extreme destruction will return," said Stainless Executive Director Neil Barnden. "We will make sure the existing fans get what they want and expect from a Carmageddon game, and a new generation discovers the delights of sliding into a Cunning Stunt."
"Carmageddon has returned to its Indie developer roots, and the time is right to bring the game to a new audience," said Patrick Buckland, CEO and Stainless co-founder. "Originally an ambitious title that tested the hardware limits of its day, we're excited that the game will finally get the showcase it deserves on today's platforms."
"Carmageddon: Reincarnation will feature the same black humour and comic violence that made the original game such a success." said Neil Barnden, Executive Director and Stainless co-founder. "All the laughs, the crazy power-ups, and extreme destruction will return. We will make sure the existing fans get what they want and expect from a Carmageddon game, and a new generation discovers the delights of sliding into a Cunning Stunt."
"I was in the war!" Patrick added.
Now in the early stages of pre-production development, 'Carmageddon: Reincarnation' is slated for release in 2012. Stainless Games is actively seeking a partner with whom to move the project on to full production.
'Carmageddon: Reincarnation' is being developed for digital download, for which Stainless Games have built an enviable worldwide reputation, with numerous cross-platform releases and multiple No.1 titles on XBLA.
