Rumor: Microsoft looking for new PGR developer

Microsoft is on the lookout for a new Project Gotham Racing developer, rumor has it.

The Xbox-only racing series has been dormant since Activision purchased its UK-based creator and developer Bizarre Creations in 2007. But it’s time for a revival, it seems; Microsoft is reportedly scouting for a Eurpean independent studio who would be suited for the task.

According to whispers from “a trusted source” reported on by Develop, the platform holder is yet to make up its mind on who to trust with the franchise, but secret meetings are said to have taken place with several developers.

2007’s Project Gotham Racing 4 (pictured) remains the latest entry in the series.
