No new Project Gotham Racing in the works

project-gotham-racing-3Don’t expect a new Project Gotham Racing game any time soon.

Rumours have swirled for some time now that Microsoft was planning a new entry in the racing game series, created by Bizarre Creations, for Xbox One. But, according to Microsoft Studios boss Phil Spencer, there’s nothing PGR-related in the works – and it sounds like there won’t be anything PGR-related in the works for quite some time.

“Maybe,” he said on an IGN podcast when asked if PGR was part of Xbox One’s future.

“The Kudos system we had in PGR was the real secret sauce. That was the thing people really loved. It had a great feel. It was there at launch, which I think was important, for both the original Xbox and Xbox 360.

“It’s funny. I was playing the new Need for Speed on Xbox One the other day. That team and EA are doing an amazing job. The next game looks fantastic in that arcade racer space.

“Some of the rumours around PGR were probably us working on Forza Horizon with Playground, and people were guessing it was a PGR game.”
