Codemasters has confirmed to Eurogamer that a new Micro Machines game is currently in development for PC, PSP and PS2.
Reports that the classic series is to make a comeback began to emerge after an ad appeared in the manual of MMORPG RF Online, which was released on Friday.
Now a Codemasters spokesperson has told us that the game is indeed on the way - and that it's "due for release this summer."
He added that the game will be based around earlier instalments in the series, but with lots of enhancements - so we're hoping for all manner of spanky new tracks, exciting new power-ups and, naturally, much better graphics. A few more multiplayer options wouldn't go amiss, either...
Expect more details later in the week.
