I don't know his credentials or anything but I'd guess that he's just relaying the information that he's heard. Maybe he talked to a Durango developer who said something and it was exaggerated slightly because of context or something. Who knows. GAF seems to trust him and Thuway though, and I don't assume it's for no reason.
I know, thats what makes me at least somewhat hopeful for the future. The rumours we've heard that Evolution were after the Gran Turismo label, less so. Way to make yerselves seem redundant in the company with 2 big graphical car game showcases, *sigh*
I should be a bit more professional about this as a journalist --- BUT BAH GAWD! PGR4 is easily my favorite racer of all time and I have a lot of love for Evolution & Motorstorm and can't wait to see what they have.
Both of those games take inspiration from Project Gotham Racing? Yeah, uh, ok.
I know the Studio Liverpool guys have something going on, Loudninja posted something about them having a new futuristic racer (not WipEout) IP in the works, but that doesn't like that at all.
I'm really curious if it's going to be the new IP or KZ4. I could see them wanting to just do KZ4, finish up the story, then focus on the new IP but they may get a ton more hype behind the new IP at launch and then pull out the stops visually on KZ4 after they've had more time with final hardware. Could go either way.
