Rumor: Carmageddon 4 announcement incoming

With E3 fast approaching, the rumor mill begins to pick up speed and things I would have never considered become more plausible. Today’s rumor du jour? The website has countdown timer which might end in the announcement of Carmageddon 4, which had originally been planned to hit shelves way back in 2005 before being halted.

The road rage encouraging racing game traditionally challenged players to win by out-racing or wrecking opponents, but also had the option for victory by killing pedestrians. No word on if Carmageddon 4 would follow these same rules, have the same gameplay style, or, really, if it even exists.

The timer runs out June 1, 2011, just under a week before E3. Until then, speculate away.
