Black Rock's new game is Split Second

Looks like a Burnout-style arcade racer.

Black Rock - the Disney-owned, UK-based developer of last year's quality quad-bike trick-racer, Pure - is working on another "action racing" game called Split Second.

A trailer for tonight's episode of GameTrailersTV promises an exclusive reveal of the new game, saying "Watch out, Burnout".

The few seconds of footage shown feature customised sports cars tearing through city streets and an exploding petrol station. It does indeed look like a close cousin to Criterion's king of the arcade racing scene.

Black Rock teased the game a couple of weeks ago with a grainier version of the same footage. Now we know what to call it.

Going by the logos on the trailer, it looks like the Split Second is coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
