What a shame.
Bizarre Creations’ last game, Blur was a pretty unique game. It was more like Mario Kart but targeted towards hardcore gamers. Apparently, it seems that they were working on a Blur 2 the studio shut down. Chris Davie, the former art director of the studio has revealed a couple of interesting videos of what looks like Blur 2.
Although he does not confirm that it is indeed Blur 2 but he does states that it is from an ‘announced, unfinished project’. The first video showcases the graphical overhaul of the game along with weather effects. While the second video shows the track set in Dubai . The video also shows off the new engine that Bizarre Creations were working on.
As Chris knew that the studio was going to close down, he continued to work on the Dubai level as he thought it will be “a shame that nobody would get to play a finished track, even the dev team.” He continued to work until “the lights went out for good.”
It is shame that the game never saw release. It really would have been pretty awesome sequel considering how good the original was. The original Blur was released on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. It was published by Activision.
Here’s hoping that some other publisher shows interest in this franchise. What do you think? Are you interested in a sequel to Blur? Let us know in the comments section below.
