Re-Volt revived by ex-Split/Second, Pure dev

Hits iOS, Android later this year.

Radio controlled car racing game Re-Volt is being revived for re-release this year on new platforms.

It's being published on Smart TVs by Korean game company We Go Interactive in partnership with fellow Korean company LG Electronics for release in December 2012. We Go picked up the rights to the Re-Volt IP in 2010.

For the mobile versions We Go collaborated with Nick Baynes, who co-created the popular racer while at Acclaim Studios (nee Probe Entertainment) back in 1999 for PC, PlayStation, Nintendo 64 and Dreamcast.

Baynes, who was game director at now-shuttered Split/Second and Pure developer Black Rock, is head of his new developer, Big Bit, working alongside former Black Rock staff. The iOS version of Re-Volt is due out in September. An Android version will launch in October.
