A month or so ago I was going my usual thing -- obsessively googling for leaks regarding Dambuster Studios' next game. I stumbled across this link, which has since been taken down. But before it was taken down, I screencapped the individual slides.

https://www.slideshare.net/brownejacobson/sumo-digital

Browne Jacobson are a British law firm. I'm not really sure why they were hosting the presentation slides of a British games company on Slideshare.

I think the most pertinent slide is "In development..." It's all very vague, but we can at least ascertain that Sumo Digital are working on a new Karting game. But the other projects are difficult to parse. Two FPS games? One is probably Dead Island 2, but Crackdown 3 is not an FPS.

Although, tbh, I'd love it if they ever actually did their power-stone inspired Sega cross-over fighting game they talked about wanting to do. They even specifically said "power-stone inspired."

sigh

Prime 4, is that you?
They don't have Nintendo listed as a partner, though. I really wonder what that could be... my pie on the sky idea? Perfect Dark. Pretty solid data mined rumour that is happening right?

Also yes the kart racer must be Sonic. The previous game did pretty well, so I'm just surprised we didn't see it sooner.

New Karting game? For the love of God, PUH-LEASE BE Sonic Racing 3! It's been 5 long years since Transformed, and still holds the crown as best kart racing game ever.

Sounds like Dead Island 2, a new Sonic racer and something else in development at the Nottingham studio.
The Nottingham Studio is interesting because, obviously, Karl Hilton worked on GoldenEye, Perfect Dark, and TimeSplitters. There's no evidence either way, but they're a potential candidate for "Who is making the rumoured new Perfect Dark?" question. They're also in the same city as Deep Silver Dambuster Studios, interestingly.

Is the Nottingham studio Free Radical? I thought they became Dambuster under Deep Silver, unless this is the Playtonic Games of Free Radical/Dambuster?

Karl Hilton known for PD, Nottingham studios with a fps development from console to pc. Multi-collaboration partner, could this be who MS has working on the rumoured PD game?

I'll allow it!

I just realized Nintendo isn't listed on the partner side. So weird, Sonic Racing sold tons more on Wii U than PS4...
That the game sold more on wiiu doesn't mean that they are partners with Nintendo

Sumo Digital has developed games that were published by both Sony and Microsoft, hence there addition to the partners side

Partner = Publishers of their old games.

Yes, but wouldn't this imply they're not putting their games on Nintendo consoles? Or just that Nintendo isn't publishing any of their games themselves only?

Forget it, just saw the Switch is floating with the other consoles. Still weird imho

The later, I will even take a hot take and say that we will get a sequel to Sonic Racing Transformed thanks to the Switch

Sonic & All-Stars Racing 3 when?

Seriously. I really hope that’s what it is, because I’ll be damned if Transformed isn’t one of the best kart racers out there. I’m sure the game will be good even if it’s for a different IP, but still.

Maybe they are working on Diddy Kong Racing 2. David Wise composed the soundtrack for Snake Pass, after all. If anybody can make a proper sequel to the original, it's them.

I hope than if they are truly making SART 2, we could have some parity between all the versions. It sucks that only the PC versión was supported till the end, there is no reason than the consoles versions didn't get any of the extra characters

Second best outcome, but i still hope it's a sequel to the sega one.

Or hopefully finally they convinced nintendo to make "Mario & Sonic Super Star Racing" for some nmario kart/nintendo crossover kart action.

I'd prefer Diddy Kong, but a third Sonic Racing game would be nice too. Transformed is one of my favorite kart racers of all-time. Maybe they can actually get the rights to ToeJam & Earl this time.

Sonic racing 3? That would be nice, really enjoyed Transformed. But I'll continue to hope for Playstation All-Stars Grand Prix.
"established IP" sighs..

If they do All-Stars Racing 3, they better get Toejam & Earl in it, especially with the new game coming out.
