Square Enix not behind Carmageddon

Reboot an independent project, report says.

The Carmageddon reboot that emerged last week is an independent project, a new report claims.

Square Enix, which is registered to the countdown website, has nothing to do with the game, VG247 reports.

"While the new game's developer is not confirmed, original studio Stainless is now concerned with producing downloadable titles based on existing IP, such as Magic: The Gathering and Risk," reads the site.

The Carmageddon IP rights have been negotiated away from Square Enix, owner of Eidos. This new game will be revealed on 1st June, ahead of E3.
