Test Drive 2 in 2008?

Atari fends off rumours.

Atari was unable to confirm or deny rumours this morning that Test Drive Unlimited 2 is in development and due for release in 2008.

It was speaking in the aftermath of Polish website GRY-OnLine.pl revealing the game, claiming to have received the 100 per cent reliable information from an anonymous source.

Said source reckons we're in store for a new PC and Xbox 360 game that will introduce off-road racing, dynamic weather, and 2,400km of road to saunter around.

Speculation like this is sometimes unfounded, but Atari's response lends a degree of believability. As does the fact that Test Drive Unlimited was one of its most critically acclaimed games of 2006.

Released on Xbox 360 late last year, and followed by PC, PS2 and PSP versions, it lets you jump behind the wheel of some shiny and hugely expensive motors, then put your foot down and burn rubber around a tropical Hawaiian island, "doing" races and building up an empire.

You can do almost anything you please, not having to stick to races or formulas if you prefer, and thanks to a clever bit of integration with that old Internet, you often ran into real people. It all turned out rather well, as our Test Drive Unlimited review will tell you.
