New WipEout Game Officially Announced... for Mobile - News

by Craig Snow , posted on 16 September 2021 / 1,566 Views

WipEout Rush is the next game in Sony's beloved WipEout franchise, IGN is reporting. Unfortunately for fans hoping for a new entry to showcase the capabilities of Sony's latest console, it's a mobile title.

You can check out the debut trailer below:

The game is being developed by Amuzo and is expected to launch on iOS and Android devices early next year.

"WipEout Rush includes 60 ships from the original games as well as a single-player campaign featuring 12 championship cup races across five distinct environments. That campaign also includes comic book-influenced storytelling that will give more personality to the racers. And in one more nod to the originals, WipEout Rush features an original electronica soundtrack from veteran Sony musician Alastair Lyndsay".

Excuse me while I go and play WipEout Omega Collection while weeping over what could have been.

I have a feeling Sony is viewing the Wipeout franchise in the same vain as Nintendo views F-Zero. Very niche franchise that they don’t know what to do with, and don’t want to just “make another game” as much as we ALL want exactly that!!!

Also note, IGN deleted the video and re-uploaded it to "wipe out" the dislikes. We're not that stupid IGN!

OMG you are right they really did. And the comments on the new upload are absolutely hilarious.

They also re-edited the trailer by ommitting the "Unique Card-Based Racing" quote and replaced it to say "Unlock Upgrade and Race" instead!

AND, it's card based racing! Like get lost! Give us a proper new WipEout game!

There hasn't been a new WipEout game for the home console since WipEout Fusion on the PS2 back in 2002! That's almost 20 years ago! Yeah we had the Omega Collection, but that was a remaster compilation of HD and the Fury Expansion from the PS3 (both of which already remastered tracks and crafts from the PSP games, WipEout Pure and WipEout Pulse from 2005 and 2007) and 2048 from the PS Vita.

It's sad to see this series go down this route...

Same with Nintendo and F-Zero :(

Ummm, actually it is even worse than that. At least according to the article about it at The Verge, you DON'T EVEN RACE AT ALL. You manage a team of racers, who race for you, through a card-based system... It's like Sony is deliberately trying to kill and bury the WipEout franchise as deep in the ground as they can lol

Oh yeah I knew how bad it was just from the description alone, how disgustingly passive the "gameplay" of this is! Not to say card based games are bad when they're tied to the right genre, but to something like this as well as a legendary IP, hell no!

They're just licensing the IP out to someone, it's not like Sony themselves are putting work and effort into it. I'm open to android games but this doesn't look good. Very much hope we get a brand new wipeout game on the PS5, it's been almost 10 years since the last new game.

Well... riiiight. "WipEout Rush features an original electronica soundtrack from veteran Sony musician Alastair Lyndsay" Wipeout used to feature actual nightclub dance tracks.
