Black Rock working on Split/Second

Pure sequel could be on back burner

Despite the many awards and acclaim that developer Black Rock Studio received with the release of the ATV racing title Pure, it would seem that the possibility for a sequel is on the back burner; as it was revealed that the developer is working on a new title called Split/Second.

The Disney-owned studio is hard at work on the multi-platform title that is being described as a combat racing title that takes place inside a fictional reality television show. The game is said to feature different types of action racing events as well as destructible map elements.

The decision to develop Split/Second goes along with the decision of Disney Interactive to attempt to cultivate new and unique IP rather than depend on Disney to provide IP that games can be built around. Split/Second is collaboration between Disney and Black Rock that the company hopes will be able to compete in a driving segment that many believe has gone somewhat stale.

With the announcement of Split/Second, fans of Pure have to be somewhat disappointed to hear that a follow-up isn’t in the pipeline. While Black Rock and Disney have not yet publicly stated that a sequel isn’t coming, it would seem that Black Rock is putting all of their efforts into the projected release of Split/Second early next year.
