Any Rally Car Games Coming?

Just wondering if there were any rally car racing games coming anytime soon?

I love the collin mcrae series and have played several others as well on consoles.

Wouldn't think it would be too hard to create.

As far as controls, just tilt left or right and have an e-brake on the left bottom corner and a gas pedal on the right bottom corner, maybe even a shifter up/down above the brake.

Just keep it simple where your racing your best lap times and online leaderboards.

Just a thought.

If after my next 2 games there's none on the store i'll probably do one, unless I get a better idea in the meantime...

It would be really easy to make, and could afford to do high detailed cars

That would be excellent if you did PG. I am hoping for a proper rally game- ie. point to point, single car, timed race. No opponents, no circuit racing. Just a nice long dirt track in front of you to drift around with nice detailed landscape and detailed car with (hopefully) visible damage. If you do ever decide, PLEASE put me down as a beta tester for it.

We're on about wanting a realistic point to point, no opponent Rally race, and you suggest an arcade racer where you jump into the air like you are in space, racing around a circuit, with opponents. I could be wrong, but I don't think that's what we're after

If you were to make one may I suggest the main focus be the controls.

Yea I'm sure it COULD be visually stunning but if it came down to the wire I'd rather have smooth control over high quality graphics.

(Maybe med-high quality graphics )
