Though many players are pining for another entry in the Burnout franchise—which is all about not only racing cars, but slamming other racers off the road so they explode in brilliant fireballs of victory—it doesn’t seem like we’ll be getting a new one anytime soon. But that doesn’t mean some of the game’s original creators don’t have something Burnout-esque in the works.
Three Fields Entertainment is a studio started by Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry, co-founders of Burnout developer Criterion Games. They left Criterion in 2014, and the Burnout franchise with it, but as IGN reports, it sounds like they’re working on something in a similar vein to the traffic-dodging, car-crashing driving series.
The Twitter account for Three Fields posted these promising items earlier this week, giving a few quick details about what the studio is working on.
Two things. Our first game is a multiplayer sports game. Coming Spring 2016. Then we make a driving game. RT and #ScreamIfYouWantToGoFaster— Three Fields (@3FieldsEnt) October 1, 2015
Spiritual successor to which one though??? The second, the third or the fourth one?? #decisions— Three Fields (@3FieldsEnt) October 1, 2015
That last one’s an interesting question, especially since the last game in the series, Burnout: Paradise, took the racing and crashing of earlier titles and threw them in a giant open-world city. And despite constantly hearing Guns N’ Roses’ “Paradise City” when playing it, it was pretty damn good. Here’s hoping for more Burnout-adjacent awesomeness.
