Big Ant Studios was known to be a popular developer of dirt track racing titles. Between 2006 and 2010, Big Ant released four short track racing titles, including one official World of Outlaws title. However, there have not been any racing titles from the company in nearly five years. That’s about to change, because Big Ant has teased a new title, set to possibly be announced next week!
I will admit that I have never played any of Big Ant’s games, so I can’t vouch for how realistic the games are. However, I know that we are in a shortage of racing games that recreate dirt oval racing, so this would be a welcome addition. From what I am seeing with Big Ant’s status, it sounds like the game has been in development for quite a while, so I’m looking forward to their update next week.
Another thing I am wondering about is what the game will be released for. To date, Big Ant has never released a racing title for the PC, staying closer to Sony consoles. The World of Outlaws title, released in 2010, was made for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. However, they have been recently releasing their other sports games for PC, so we could maybe see a title for PC. The big question is, will it be for current gen titles, or will it be released for the previous generation?
What are your thoughts on Big Ant’s upcoming announcement? Have you tried any of their previous games?
