Rumor: Slightly Mad Studios Working on Fast & Furious Title

Published

 on

In an open discussion with Australian YouTuber SpotTheOzzie, Slightly Mad Studios CEO Ian Bell revealed some delicate hints regarding one of the company’s projects.

When talking about the Need for Speed series, Bell equates Need for Speed’s content with that of a Hollywood film franchise. “I can tell you we have a six-year deal with that major Hollywood company that’ll beat what Need for Speed is doing. For the next six years,” said Bell, reiterating previous hints about the developer’s upcoming title.

Although Fast & Furious was not directly mentioned in Bell’s conversation with SpotTheOzzie, the developer later dropped hints that seemed rather telling. However, no official confirmation has yet been made, meaning that whether or not the studio’s current project is a Fast & Furious title remains a rumor for now.

The full discussion between SpotTheOzzie and Ian Bell is available here.

Slightly Mad Studios is an independent British video game company based in London, England. The company released Need for Speed: Shift with Electronic Arts in September 2009. So far, Slightly Mad Studios focuses solely on various racing games and simulators, with one of its current titles being the sequel to 2015’s Project CARS, which is slated to release on Friday and was selected as one of OnlySP’s top three PC games for September, though it will also be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Marvel's Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Loading PS5

New footage has emerged demonstrating the loading times of Sony’s upcoming PlayStation console.

The Wall Street Journal technology reporter Takashi Mochizuki posted a video on Twitter showing off the new console’s loading times in Marvel’s Spider-Man. While the PlayStation 4 Pro takes 8.1 seconds to load an area, the next generation console takes 0.83 seconds.

The video also demonstrates the speed at which the upcoming console loads the game world in Marvel’s Spider-Man; while the PS4 Pro stutters while loading in the buildings of the open world, the next generation console speeds through the world without any noticeable lag.

Check out the full video below.

Sony confirmed the first details of its upcoming console last month, revealing that it will be backwards compatible and feature much more advanced technology than the PS4. OnlySP’s Daniel Pereira felt that the beefy specifications may not be entirely necessary for the console.

A sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man may be in the works, if recent job advertisements at Insomniac Games are any indication.
