Capcom doing MotoGP PS2

Corners PlayStation rights.

Capcom has snapped up the rights to develop MotoGP games for PlayStation formats.

Up to now Namco has handled the PS2 and PSP MotoGP games, with THQ licensing the motorbike racing series for Xbox 360 and PC.

Capcom plans to release a PlayStation 2 title, MotoGP '07, in Europe and the US this autumn, with the expectation being that PS3 and PSP titles may follow.

Speaking at its Gamers Day event in San Francisco last week, Capcom's Mark Beaumont said the project "clearly demonstrates Capcom's intent to broaden its portfolio to include both original and licensed IP, work with the best developer talent and brands from across the globe to create new exciting gaming experiences".

MotoGP consists of 18 Grand Prix, featuring bikes from all the top manufacturers and riders like Nicky Hayden and Valentino Rossi, and is not - as we learned this weekend - to be confused with the Superbike World Championship, for which Milestone is developing SBK-07: Superbike World Championship 2007 across multiple formats.
