A few days ago we had reported that a new Carmageddon might be in works. Fortunately those rumors were indeed correct. Stainless have re-acquired the Carmageddon brand from Square Enix and will be released as a downloadable game in 2012.
“Carmageddon has returned to its Indie developer roots, and the time is right to bring the game to a new audience,” said Patrick Buckland, Stainless co-founder and CEO.
“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.”
Stainless co-founder Neil Barnden added: “Carmageddon: Reincarnation will feature the same black humour and comic violence that made the original game such a success. 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.”
So far no platforms have been announced but we will have it posted here when we have more updates on the same.
