For those of you who prefer off-road racing to street racing, you're probably familiar with the MX vs. ATV franchise.
Previously owned by the now-defunct THQ, the series ran for quite a while and included multiple installments during the last generation. Nordic Games picked up the IP when THQ's properties went to auction earlier this year and now, the new owners say we can expect a fresh installment.
It's MX vs. ATV Supercross , and it's scheduled to release in the first half of 2014 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac and Linux. It will also be available digitally on those platforms. Said executive producer Ken George:
"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."
Nordic Games business development director Reinhard Pollice added- "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." Well, I hope things turn out well for them; this franchise wasn't the most polished out there, although it was entertaining. The last one I remember playing was MX vs. ATV Reflex . It was fun but mostly forgettable.
