Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope, not gonna happen, not gonna happen, not gonna happen.

 

Thanks for the persuasive argument and well thought out response......

 

If only. Sadly, even if one is made, it's not the same people so will not be a true PGR :(

 

RTW said they won't work with MS on Crackdown again and Ruffian Games are making a PC title, confirming they're not working on Crackdown 3. Many of the complaints over 2 were because of Ruffian so I'm not sure MS would chance it for a 3rd developer.

Totally wishful thinking I know, but another PGR could still be amazing if done right. Codemasters maybe?

As for another Crackdown, even if MS wanted RTW they closed their doors years ago, and they wouldn't risk Ruffian again. So they would have to chance a 3rd dev if they are serious about continuing the series.

While obvious, I think it's good he wants to emphasize their pace on the gaming front to squash the "tv, tv, tv" crowd. Especially when they have already announced double digit games for the 1st year already.

I think the people who are saying that's all the Xbox One is have already made up their minds.

Well they did say 15 exclusives at their first announcement, so I imagine what they have announced and not released will also be promoted in this.

 

If they are announcing new games I predict that we may be seeing:
- Forza Horizon 2

- Another Banjo-Kazooie game

- Crackdown 3

 

- State of Decay 2 (either a sequel or the full blown MMO)

- Probably some JRPG's to appeal to the Japanese launch.

What I'd really like announced is:
- Conker's Bad Fur Day 2

- Project Gotham Racing

- Perfect Dark 2

- Viva Pinata 3

 

 

Been waiting years for the next Viva Pinata. It's now time. All these IPs Microsoft owns they should push.

Oh god I hope not. They haven't put effort into their racing series for years. I'd rather it stayed dead than go to Codies.

It'll never happen but I think Criterion (or at least the Ghost team who splintered), could make a good PGR.

Maybe. It's still early days yet. All it takes is one great IP for some people.

It's nice to see more VP fans on the board! It's a shame the series wasn't given the respect it deserved at its time of release. I swear it's still one of the deepest, most addictive "RTSs" the consoles have ever had.

Ah see I've only play up until Grid and Dirt 2, so I still have massive respect for them for that.

Criterion would actually be a nice match, but I assume they'll be the Need for Speed team from now on.

Viva Pinata was an excellent game, never really got a chance to play much of the second game but a Third game would be amazing. WE NEED A PETITION FOR THIS!

Why would a new PGR need to be done by a 3rd party developer? MSS has expanded their internal studios along with buying a few etc. It could be done in house, same for a new crackdown. Regardless I think KI isn't going to be the only IP we see them bring back with a new version.  I expect a good mix of old and new through the life of the XB1.  As far as the Japanese market goes, they'd need to buy or make a true exclusive deal with a few developers so they have games only for the XB1 otherwise like before the Japanese gamers will just wait for any timed exclusive games to come out for the PS4 and then buy them, not really an answer IMO.

Horizon is already damn close to PGR. Horizon 2 could potentially be what a new PGR would be. And it solves another problem with car games, they're damn expensive to do thanks to the time and cost of doing the car models and simulations. the next Horizons will like the previous one share the car data and simulation engine with Forza(interestingly this also makes it very close with PGR as PGR had a very advanced sim engine in the back, but it was tuned down for arcade mode) saving a lot of development cost and even time.

 

I wish they would share DLC cars between regular Forza and Horizon though.  

 

as for a new Horizon, they've practically already stated it will be and that horizon and Forza will likely be a bi annual release, Forza one year, Horizon the next.

No chance. They already cancelled these projects for the 360 and given the current state of Rare I wouldnt expect anything out of them other than Kinect Sports sequels. Heck they didnt even make KI3.

Which just means some other studio can make them, the management that was in place when those were canned for the 360 are gone so anything is possible.

It doesn't matter who it's done by is the point I was making. It wouldn't be PGR. Same goes for Crackdown.

We've discussed this before but I strongly disagree with Horizon/PGR comparisons. Almost blasphemous to the PGR series to compare the two (N)

They're both arcade racers. all horizons would need to do is rename the scoring to kudos and they'd be there. minus the idiotic bikes, which was the first sign that they where losing track and the next PGR by the same devs wouldn't have been PGR either.

I don't agree there, I think there are talented people to be found at work around the industry, they'll bring their own ideas and take on the games be it a new PGR or a new Perfect Dark or w/e.  I'd much rather give another studio a shot at the IP instead of letting it die because the original studio either no longer exists or doesn't want to work on it anymore.

Would take a lot more than that for me personally. I haven't had any inclination of playing more than a few hours of Horizon & I'm a PGR fanboy. Something definitely wrong there if it's supposed to be a "spirtual successor" or the the same game minus the name.

Just a personal taste thing I guess. I'm the same when it comes to movies, music and tv. You replace a band member and instantly that fusion is gone or doesn't have the same magic. Games get a little more leeway of course because we're talking about hundreds of people, but when it's an entirely new team then I'm not interested. Or at least it'll never live up to what came before it.

Hopefully the games are native 1080.  

 

I am picking up an xbox one sometime soon, and it bothers me that it's next gen, and their launch games cant or wont do 1080 out of the box.   I don't get it.  

 

 

 

I wish they would port over gta 5 for it.  

Don't worry, it'll only get better.

I'd love to see a new PGR, Horizon was good but PGR was better (just my opinion though)
