Pseudo Interactive's Closing Killed New Carmageddon?
A new sequel to the racing game for the chemically imbalanced has reportedly been canned with the recent closing of Pseudo Interactive. The developer of Full Auto was shutdown following major layoffs by the hand of Eidos and SCi, who more recently scrapped several games and including one in development by Pseudo, which was, according to Next Gen, a new Carmageddon.
They claim this news comes from a senior games industry executive that isn’t connected to either Eidos or Pseudo. If true, it’s simultaneously disappointing and exciting. While it’s a shame that Pseudo wasn’t able to follow through with development of a new Carmageddon and which is a pretty natural step after having developed Full Auto and at least it shows that there was some interest in rebooting the franchise.
Does anyone else have fond memories of any of the old Carmageddon games, or am I alone on this one?
