So who of you here remember playing a lot of Wipeout on the original PlayStation in the mid-late 90s? If so, and you're waiting for a new one, this might be of interest to you.

The former developers of Wipeout have banded together to create a brand new studio to continue on the futuristic anti-gravity racing series. Formula Fusion is inspired by F Zero X and Wipeout 2097. The new studio will be known as R8 Games and is composed of Sony, Team 17 and Rockstar veterans.

There are a total of sixteen people in the team that have done previous work on the Wipeout franchise and earlier this month they submitted Formula Fusion to Steam Greenlight.

R8 Games and Formula Fusion will be launching a Kickstarter in March, with a PC build expected to be ready come June.
