Split/Second 2 project is terminated?

Layoffs confirm the sequel to be cancelled? (Disney Interactive, PS3, Split Second, Xbox 360)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 10

Liked the concept of the first game but it got repetitive quick. I was expecting an extreme Burnout, but all I got was an average game with pre-rendered car damage. Maybe the sequel could have changed that

It just can't stand up to the likes of Motorstorm Apocalypse.
So it's understandable why Disney would cancel it.

hope not. the first is very fun. all it needs is more depth offline and on and ss2 could deliver that if its not cancelled

The first run through of each track/event was a blast in the original Split Second, but as 'Jio' mentioned, it does become extremely repetitive unfortunately.

Ah that sucks. There was also supposed to be a Pure sequel. Both were really fun, and I think they knew how to improve them for the sequels. Shame.

Well lets hope that is not the case, I really liked split second....racing down the runway in the airport track as a huge crashing plane is playing chicken was a great moment when you experienced 1st hand....

Damn. I loved Split/Second. I hate seeing all these great arcade racers like Blur, Split/Second, and Midnight Club die out.

they need a bigger audience and to be taken more seriously, which is why MotorStorm scores so high.

Pity other platforms don't get that kind of exclusive AAA combat racer anymore (XGRA).

Well, it is a rumor. Rumor's aren't always true. If it really is cancelled, we'll most certainly find out. Hopefully, this is someone just trying to spin web hits and it isn't true. Split Second was one of the most action packed and intense racers I played last year. And most importantly, it was such a new, well executed concept! PURE was fun to. Black Rock really has some unique talent, especially under the Disney license. it would be a shame to see them shut, especially since Propaganda Studios Shut.

people should just wait for the new burnout anyway

Crash? no thanks. Maybe if it was focused on Road Rage (and so more in line with the appeal of The Run..)
