The dream is over: Lucid's racing game is 2K Drive for iOS (out in Dutch/UAE store)

So what was the title that aegies and that Tiburon (or whatever his name was) all but confirmed was PGR? Is it possible that we could just be getting a PGR but without Lucid's involvement, given all the Codies guys at Rare?

I'm not saying it's possible or even the best outcome (I'd be stunned if MS would consider commissioning a PGR game without Lucid) but I guess it's still kinda likely.

But that's not passionate speculation mixed with anticipation anymore... that's just... I dunno.

Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance all in one post.

NOOOOOOOOOOO.

Damn you TheOddOne and that Lucid employee for stepping into the PGR5 thread.

I *am* still hopeful, though. Too much stuff pointing directly too things that aren't covered by that iOS title.

When I say I'm hopeful... it's not that, it's just that I'm not conclusively writing the whole thing off yet.

Yup. Give it till tomorrow.

If not then then they may announce it at Gamescom in August?
Well, we're basing a lot off the whole "Road opens in 2013" teaser on Lucid's site, which was proven to be for 2K Driving (which was indeed released in May, just like their tweet about having exciting news mid-May). If we take that out of the equation, we still have all the other "evidence" (pure speculation lolz) but without the confinement of a release date. So we may not see any kind of an announcement for months if MS have decided to alternate it with FM and release it next year.

If it exists at all, obviously.

Oh, and don't forget that thuway (who appears to be a credible source re: One/PS4 rumours... at least, a lot of people seem to think so) name-dropped PGR a few months back ;)

Am I the only one who's starting to wonder how threads like this are still being tolerated? Is every game announced for iOS going to get a thread of people screaming no and laughing?

Mods? What are these threads contributing?

This isn't one of those threads, though.

The thread is like this because there were a lot of us hoping/wishing/assuming Lucid were working on a new PGR for 360/One.

So this is more the stark realisation that maybe they haven't been working on a new PGR.

This is people upset that it's not PGR. I love iOS gaming.

Did you read the first post and jump to post a reply? I'm pretty sure the other replies would've had you covered here.

Not being facetious, I can see how it could be misconstrued as some iOS-bashing thread (albeit one that obviously requires more investigation, given the OP makes no sense out of context) but it's not wise to try and backseat mod without reading the thread.

Good for them, hopefully they'll make good money on a well done ios game. Bad for me, I wanted it to be PGR pretty bad.
I don't know how much money they'll make... given it's F2P, does the publisher give them a sackload of money, say "make this" then said pub (in this case, 2K) gets all the profit? On that note, I wonder if there are any financial figures on Real Racing 3, which 2KD seems to borrow from VERY heavily in that aspect.

Edit:
I never get the iOS hate here. It's a viable gaming platform.

Blame AAA gaming for being an unsustainable clusterfuck for small devs.

How is this different than the current XBO threads? Or the WiiU and Vita threads?

PGR is dead, but just like my other favorite racer, Rallisport 2, something will take its place.

The developers of Forza Horizon have lots of great developers including old PGR folk.

Honestly, I'm more curious to try 2K racing, it might actually turn out really awesome. Maybe an Android port with a controller could be really good.

so we are not allowed to lament the death of our favorite franchises? Its the same as the Deus Ex IOS thread... all the fans think were going to get another great game in a series, and it turns out to be an appstore release

i view console/pc franchises moving to IOS as basically the death knell and it makes me mad

i think gaming on ios devices is a joke, im not invading OT threads to whine, that would be moddable. This thread is clearly and upfront stating the disdain for this game existing and it should be allowed

I would be ok with this only if Lucid guys did not handled their fanbase like that. It is no way to handle fans. Sorry, you lost all respect.
