If this is true, excited isn't the word!
Project Gotham 5
Pageof 3 First / Last
Yeah, that would be a big deal for me. MSR/PGR remains by favourite racing series by some distance.
Old rumour is it not.
Remember seeing that picture ages ago.
Think it's true anyway. Now bring back Midtown Madness as well.
Always had more fun with those over Forza.

Well they would need a racing game for a new console launch title and PGR would look to be ideal. Still they could also use the Forza brand for the same thing. I would prefer they went PGR though.

The article's a bit confusingly written but it seems to be saying that PGR5 as a 720 release game has been confirmed,

The studio making PGR5 has plenty of ex-bizzare staff

@anthonypappa Just like Halo is meaningless with Bungie, Tomb Raider without Core and Far Cry without Crytek to name a few...
Halo 4 was the most expensive game ever made if you count the cost of setting up 343.
Forza Horizon was not and was created with some Ex-Bizzare creation staff as well. That turned out pretty damn well.
Have some hope this might turn out good.
Hopefully this will also get some marketing unlike PGR 4. Which MS shamefully just didn't bother with.
PGR4 was awesome. It just happened to come out around the same time as Halo 3 which fucked it over.
@anthonypappa it does http://www.lucidgames.co.uk/about-us/

Established in February 2011 by senior developers from Bizarre Creations, Lucid has set itself out to be a small team with big ideas and the skills to deliver them.
Our performance over the past few years has proved we are just that. We’ve successfully won contracts to build dynamic new IP, settled ourselves into a shiny new office in the heart of Liverpool’s creative quarter and completed a number of technically challenging work-for-hire contracts.
With almost 40 staff at Lucid, each with unrivalled experience, our team have worked on some of the biggest gaming franchises to come out of the UK in the last 20 years. From PS1 classics such as Formula 1 97, the BAFTA winning Project Gotham Racing franchise through to recent blockbusters such as Blur and James Bond 007 : Blood Stone we’ve contributed to some of biggest selling games of the last two decades.

Definitely seen that picture before, can't remember where though but it was a few weeks ago, so it's not exactly news.
I think a mix of old and new talent working on this would do the series some good. Gotham 3 was an amazing launch game though Gotham 4 was a ever so slightly confusing mess when it came to the single player.

I am happy to wave goodbye to motorbikes if there is such a thing as PGR5 ...
... they were so tediously boring to drive.
If Project Gotham is a launch game for the next Xbox then well, tough decisions ahoy!
I enjoyed the PGR4 single player. Sure, it was a little over complicated in places, but it wasn't as broken as the MSR single player game, and at least it wasn't designed by Codemasters.
Hopefully the person who does the UI has improved or isn't involved.
Time for San Francisco again. Feels like enough time has passed and more of the other parts, fuck the docks.
MSR SINGLE PLAYER WASN'T BROKEN!!!!!!!!!!
BEING ABLE TO UNLOCK ALL THE CARS HALFWAY THROUGH THE THIRD SET OF INTRODUCTORY LEVELS IS HOW A WELL DESIGNED GAME SHOULD WORK!!!!!!!!

I'd be all over this. PGR4 was so much fun online, my friends and I still talk about the epic times we had on there.
Bring back Team Championship mode!
Yeah I'm on board for this, like kalel the PGR series is the top of the tree for me.
PGR5 is the first possible title for the next Xbox that I'd actually want.

Bought PGR3 at launch and have never been tempted to get rid of it.
PGR2 is, to my mind, the pinnacle of the genre. So many hours invested in just the time trials alone...

PGR2 is my favourite racer of all time, PGR4 is not far behind. 1 was a great launch title and I don't remember having much of a problem with it, 3 was an ok launch title but I missed the lower rank cars, also when you got the F50 you pretty much won the game, I had to stop myself from using it so there was still a challenge.
I'd love a PGR5 and Lucid seem like a good choice, I have confidence in them.
A Rallisport Challenge 3 would also be a very welcome incentive to get a Xbox 3.
PGR 2 is the pinnacle of the genre in my opinion as well.
Meh, PGR1 beats PGR2 in all respects except music selection, and some minor faddy thing calling itself 'live'. Better tracks in PGR1, and a better kudos system IMO. But we've had this argument before...
Was here the other day for any of you eagle eyed PGR2 players.
