EA will look into an SSX revival

Outcome depends on you, apparently.

EA Montreal trouser-wearer Alain Tascan has admitted there is a lot of love for the SSX snowboarding series at the studio, and said that a revival may be on the cards - particularly if the market (that's you) demands it.

"Ah, SSX," Tascan sighed wistfully to GamesIndustry.biz. "We have a big catalogue and we were talking about what people like. I think this is something we will look at in the future to see if it makes sense to revive the franchise.

"It's a little bit early to talk about it, but I feel... I know internally it is a franchise that people love because it was successful and good, and it reminds me of when we were young, and I feel if the market is there and is ready for a new one then we'll consider it."

SSX was last on the piste back in 2005, with the GameCube, PS2 and Xbox release of SSX On Tour. That was good, by the way, but not as good as SSX 3 and SSX Tricky.

EA Montreal is currently making Army of Two sequel The 40th Day which, as I hope you have noticed, will be playable at the Eurogamer Expo - as will Mass Effect 2 etcetera, etcetera.
