if only more of us had bought their games they would be around making more games for us to buy.

I thought pretty much everyone got hired by the Forza team anyway. And that game looks exactly like Blur, must be a sequel.

Who got what IP? Because i would like to see further evolution In Geometry Wars.

Truer words have never been said.

This news is BIZARRE.

Yeah that definitely looks like sequel to Blur. That only makes things more sad. Blur was the best cart racer I had played since Mario Kart 64, and it might be even better than that. Too bad no one bought it.

I'd assume sine they were owned by Craptivision then they would be the owners of the IP.

Looking at the Wiki page it seems first one was published by MS Studios and the second one got published under the Activision brand.

Activision also released the iOS, Wii, and DS versions so Activision owns the franchise and will sit on it indefinitely. Doesn't matter though because YOU CANT IMPROVE PERFECTION.

yeah me too, my brother loved that game

I saw this on a "popular internet message board" yesterday and this makes me sad. I was not a super fan of blur. I enjoyed what I played, but was a much bigger fan of MSR/PGR and Geometry Wars. I also want to get on that 007 Bloodstone, but I always see it hovering around the $29.99 mark where I only want to really pay $10-15 just to try it.

I really, really loved Blur.

We took tech and assets from Blur, and used them to try out some new ideas.

Very subtle.. I still saw what you did there though.

I believe I read that the prototype uses assets directly from Blur as placeholders.

It also said they were overhauling Shunt. That's a Blur specific powerup. There would be little point in doing that if it wasn't for a Blur sequel or at least a very similarly playing game.

@Barrabas: I'm sure it was a sequel, but just wanted to point out that the similarities were due to exact assets being used.

Blur and Geometry Wars were pretty awesome. Geometry Wars way more so, though.

Still, would've been interested in a Blur 2. Sad we'll never see it.

I would like Turn 10 & Playground make a new racing game series. Something that could allow them to stagger the releases of Forza games more, and is more arcade/mario kartish.
