In news that will probably disappoint every fan of the franchise, another FlatOut game is still coming.
Not much has been said about FlatOut 4: Total Insanity since it was announced at GamesCom in 2015. It's not being made by Bugbear, of course, which immediately dampened expectations. And the fact that the game's own website hasn't been updated since then doesn't help either.
But work has been continuing. Just before Christmas, the Classification Board slapped a PG rating on FlatOut 4: Total Insanity. The game was originally being published by Strategy First, but it's now being looked after by French outfit Bigben Interactive.
According to a press release pushed out in November - which went completely under everybody's radar, by the looks of things - FlatOut 4 is due for release this March. It's being developed by the same team behind the WRC 5 and WRC 6 series, so at least there's some pedigree. Still wouldn't get my hopes up, mind you.
Update: Wrote Criterion in an earlier iteration when I meant to say Bugbear (who, as someone noted, is still working on Wreckfest). My bad.
