Criterion Games’ Creative Director believes that "Road Rash seems like a good fit” for the studio.

Craig Sullivan reiterated that Criterion intends to return to the Burnout series, but also said that he would like to do a new Road Rash game.

Road Rash debuted on SEGA Megadrive back in 1991. It mixed bike racing with combat, allowing you to whack your competitors with chains, bats and nunchuks. 

A number of sequels and ports followed the original release but there hasn’t been a new Road Rash game since Road Rash: Jail Break for PSone in 1999.

"There's still a lot we want to do with driving and we will make another Burnout game at some point," said Sullivan. 

"Obviously, as we're working on NFS we're thinking of really good ideas that aren't right for this series; there are ideas that we're going to explore with Burnout."

When asked what classic series Sullivan would like to remake, he responded by talking about Road Rash and a game without vehicles.

"When we did Burnout Paradise we did some motorbike DLC and now everyone thinks that we're going to do a Road Rash game at some point. 

“I had a lot of fun playing that game, we think bikes are fun. We might make a Road Rash game...But we might make a game without vehicles in it. 

“I mean, we made Black, I was the lead designer - we might make a game about blowing the crap out of each other."

So a new Road Rash game from Criterion is a million miles from a dead cert, but it’s something to mull over. Sullivan concluded by saying, "Road Rash seems like a good fit for Criterion."

Criterion is currently working on Need for Speed: Most Wanted, which is due out in November. Our latest preview can be found here.
