Whatever Happened To Crimson Skies? - 1UP

1UP writes:

Around the time Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge shipped on Xbox in 2003, Microsoft was making a transition as a game publisher, moving from a portfolio aiming to hit many game genres to one focused on blockbusters. That meant the end of their plans for Crimson Skies, but as it turns out, not the end of the franchise.

Since we're doing coverage this week on Dark Void -- which is the first game from many of the developers of High Road to Revenge since they left Microsoft and formed Airtight Games -- we decided to take a look at the series that served as one of its key inspirations... ( Crimson Skies, Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge, Dark Void, PC, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Crimson Skies was great...
I would really love a sequel. That game made me want to start playing flying games again. Too bad it came out near the end of the XBOX and couldnt get a foothold of any kind. Crimson Skies was one of those games that could re wake an entire genre if done right.

Yeah that game was badass!!
I usually do not play these types of games but liked the first one. It was fun. Was this out on the Dreamcast? or was that another game similar?
