MotorStorm and MotorStorm: Pacific Rift are both technical hallmarks for Evolution Studios. Each has enjoyed a moderate level of success so it would only be natural for the franchise to continue. At the moment there has been no official word about a sequel for the MotorStorm franchise. The last time we ventured forth into the PS3‘s dangerous racing sport was in 2008. While we did receive a PS2 and PSP title in 2009, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift has not yet received a proper sequel. Looks like that’s about to change, though.
If you happened to stumble upon Motorstorm3.com, something peculiar may happen. By visiting the currently non-existing website, you will be redirected to the UK PlayStation website. The Gaming Liberty happened to catch this, and did some investigating of their own. Sony Europe has registered MotorStorm 3, confirmed by a Who Is domain search. The domain was registered on January 19th 2010, and will expire exactly two years later, in 2012.
