MX vs ATV Supercross Coming to PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, and Linux in 2014
When Nordic Games bought the rights to many THQ properties earlier this year, it remained to be seen what their plans were for the Red Faction, Darksiders, MX vs ATV, and many other franchises. Well, they’ve finally unveiled their plans for at least one of the series’ as MX vs. ATV Supercross will be released in the first half of 2014 for PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, and Linux.
Being developed in Phoenix, the team making the new game includes “numerous MX vs. ATV staff” and “this dedicated team will be taking [Supercross] to even greater heights while retaining the ingredients that made MX vs. ATV so successful.” As you’d expect from the title, the game is centered around Supercross, with Nordic saying it has the scope of a downloadable title.
You can expect the development team to maintain the existing MX vs. ATV Alive and MX vs. ATV Reflex code, while also bringing back as many features as possible, including multiplayer on consoles, Motoclub Depot, and more.
Executive Producer Ken George talked about the new game:
We’re absolutely thrilled to be working with Nordic Games because they appreciate the team’s passion and dedication to bring the feel of real motocross racing to MX vs. ATV fans. Not just the adrenaline rush, but the whole experience from top to bottom. A lot of the original team members have been aching to continue their passion: building the most authentic off-road racing games possible. The hiatus is over, and the team is back to work on MX vs. ATV with great new things to come.
Reinhard Pollice, Business & Product Development Director at Nordic Games, added:
We’re all devoted fans of the MX vs. ATV games, so being able to play a part in continuing this brilliant series is a dream come true. We’re absolutely committed to ensuring Ken and his team receive the best support and the freedom to create the games they love making – and we’re confident that the series will continue to grow from strength to strength. Supercross is just the start of our MX vs. ATV plans. 2014 and beyond will prove to be a hell of a ride.
More details about MX vs. ATV Supercross will be revealed down the road.
