It looks like a new Geometry Wars
game is on the way, courtesy of Activision.
A listing on the Australian National Classification Scheme website shows a game dubbed Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2
. As you might expect from a classification website, details are scarce. What we are told, however, is that the game will be multi-platform. Technically, 'multi-platform' could just indicate two platforms, so it could just be planned as a download for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
Oh - and the game has been rated 'G' for 'general'...
The original Geometry Wars
appeared as a mini game in Project Gotham Racing 2
, but was followed up with Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved
on Xbox Live Arcade. Versions of the game have since appeared for PC and mobiles, while Geometry Wars: Galaxies
was given a disc/cart release for the Wii and DS through Sierra.
It's to be expected, of course, that any further Geometry Wars
title would be released through Activision following its purchase
of Bizarre, the developer that created the series.
SPOnG contacted Activision for confirmation, but was told "Activision does not comment on rumour and speculation." That said, it seems unlikely that the Australian National Classification Scheme is indulging in rumour and speculation...
