I know this rumour has been going around the internet a lot lately. It's been shot down several times, but it does not seem to stay down for long.

Today some websites pointed in the direction of new hints at a Criterion developed SSX sequel. Craig Sullivan, creative driector at Criterion games posted this on his Twitter account:

"MONSTER TRICK."

"Elise on SnowDream."

http://twitter.com/SargeSullivan

This week, the Criterion Twitter account mentioned an E3 announcement...Well, kind of.

Soon...........all will be revealed........in the City of Angels.......!

http://twitter.com/CriterionGames

Hints at the upcoming announcement? Was Craig Sullivan just re-playing the SSX games? What about that Need For Speed game Criterion is supposedly working on?

What do you guys make of this? The idea of Criterion making an SSX game makes my brain melt.

I thought it was a new message. The Criterion Games account could be hinting at anything. A Blade Runner videogame maybe?

EVEN THOUGH I REALLY THINK IT'S SSX GOD PLEASE BE SSX

I'll be happy with any news of SSX4, was wondering the other day how odd it has been for us to not have gotten any new SSX since Blur.

Whatever happened to EA Big? Wikipedia shows them as still being around and that they haven't made anything since Blur. Why have Criterion make it when the team that made all of those great SSX games is still around?

Yes, Criterion handling the next SSX (PS3+360) was a very believable rumor a few months ago.

Seems more and more info is coming out, I expect some nice footage or screens by E3 hopefully.

The most important things are the following:
- Less like what EA Big did to the series AFTER SSX3, more like SSX/SSX Tricky/SSX3
- EA Big seems to have either lost their touch or lost key employees (look at the sloppy 'sequels' that SSX On Tour and Blur pretend to be), so Criterion (Burnout Paradise) handling it I have faith.

An SSX sequel could rake in the cash if done well. I hope this is true.

What would you guys like to see?

I would like a whole mountain experience like SSX3 but with the charm and crazyness of Tricky. Also lots of characters, over the top tricks but also accessible in terms of controls to perform the tricks. Also multiplayer.

What´s wrong with SSX On Tour?
Probably the soundtrack of forever and an awesome game.

I really can't see a British developer making a snowboarding game. Yes, anything is possible, but aren't they working on the next NFS? As for EA big - they seem to have disbanded. Pity, though, as they were a great team.

Or maybe it's as simple as EA Big got fatigued from making SSX games for an entire generation that they said "fuck this we're going to leave to work on other projects" and the nice EA of today was like okay take a break.

Why does everything have to be such a drama? Anything Criterion makes is awesome news one can only hope the PC version comes to Steam day one.

Personally I'd be happy with SSX3 in HD. But yes, it needs to compose of elements from SSX3 and Tricky.
SSX3 was near perfect, but sometimes missing some of the variety of map race locales (it had Hawaii, Japan, Sweden, etc). The unique personalities of all the characters needs to come back, but the RIGHT way. Not like SSX Blur.

The demo disc I got with my PS2 had the first SSX on it. God, was that good. I was blown away by the gfx and used to wince and rub my knees when landing after a huge jump. That was immersive.

Bizarrely I thought the follow ups never matched the heights of the original.

Didn't Shaun White actually do really well on the Wii and even prompted a Wii-exclusive sequel?

Ubisoft's going back to multplatform for Shaun White Skateboarding though.

Ironically, Shaun White Wii went in a cartoony direction, similar to Blur.

I have no clue about how Blur did.

They have two teams but I don't think they work the way that they can put out two games at the same time.

Wouldn't it be awkward to control on 360? Unless they tweak the controls, holding LB and LT would be really strange. I'd say drop the SSX name too.

Why would you guys insist on calling it "SSX 4? I understand On Tour and Blur weren't numbered sequels, but neither was SSX "2" (Tricky).

Note: I know what the answer to this question is, but fuck you, Blur is awesome.

SSX by Criteron would be perfect. I'd imagine they would do a single massive mountain, with chair lifts and helicopters to go to different locations all over the place. Totally free roam SSX snowboarding heaven.

Please be true.
