Motorstorm Dev Will F****** Blow You Away

March 1, 2011Written by Joseph Peterson

The Motorstorm series is easily one of the top PlayStation exclusive series out there. Its over the top racing, and variety of vehicles and tracks keep racing fans coming back for more. There have been a total of three Motorstorm titles released on the PlayStation 3 by Evolution Studios. So what is in store for the studio after Motorstorm: Apocalypse is released later this year?

In a recent interview with CVG, Simon Barlow, the director of Motorstorm: Apocalypse, sat down to discuss the future of Evolution Studios. Here is what he had to say:

How do you top [Motorstorm: Apocalypse]? I don’t have that answer, but then when we made Pacific Rift we were like, “How do you top that?” I didn’t have the answer at the time but the answer came about.

Who knows what we’ll do next, whether it’s Motorstorm or something else? We will improve on this at some point. Maybe we’ll need to switch genres to improve on it, maybe this is the pinnacle of off-road racing, I don’t know, it remains to see what the players think of it.

Like I said before, all I want to do is make sure we keep creating kick-ass games. If that’s another Motorstorm game or if that’s an entirely new game it doesn’t matter. What you can expect from Evolution Studios is just stuff that f****** blows you away.

We’ve set our stall out now, I feel like the previous two games were building to this point; both in terms of visual spectacle but also in terms of playable experience.

It will be exciting to see what route that Evolution Studios takes in their future. They have always delivered high quality titles, especially with the Motorstorm series. How many of you plan on picking up Motorstorm: Apocalypse when it is released?
