Project Gotham Racing 5 will launch alongside the new Xbox, reports have suggested.
The racing game will be developed by Liverpool studio Lucid Games, which is made up of ex-Criterion and Bizarre Creations staff, reports STFUandPlay.
An image on the Lucid Games website (above), meanwhile, depicts London with a “Road Opens 2013” sign in the foreground.
The picture suggests that the new Xbox will launch later this year, backing up previous reports.
Project Gotham Racing 3 was an Xbox 360 launch title and was followed by a sequel, which introduced motorbikes.
Development studio Bizarre Creations was subsequently purchased by Activision, before closing down in 2011.
The new Xbox has reportedly entered beta, with a shipment of brand new prototype kits having made their way to developers.
Alleged Xbox 720 patent filings suggest Microsoft’s next console will feature an improved Kinect device and two CPUs, one for gaming and another for multimedia applications.
