    This is very interesting news. Guess we'll have to wait until E3 for anything to be definitely confirmed though.

    Yesterday I've read some news about a new WipEout, definited as "the real new WipEout for PS3, not the HD's anticipation" (this is the juice of the newd that I've read).
    But some of the links of this notice in every website was deleted after two hours: a very good new, too big to be released now?
    In every way, am very excited: I don't have a PS3, but something will be released, an episode completely new or simply a new expasion, and this notice makes me very hopeful and happy.
    I hope that a new WipEout will come back, but at the same time I hope that the serie will be granted in good hands, and nice creative minds!

    EDIT: But I hope that this new project hasn't been cancelled by the SL's redundancies...

    Yessss, a new game is still in project, this is an italian link:

    http://www.spaziogames.it/notizie_vi...orizzonte.aspx

    It says that a new game was projected (and until this moment this was an unrevealed project), and that Sony was contacted about this new notice.
    Let's hope in a new episode, but especially in a new good game, guys!

    Sorry for the double post, these are all the details in english:

    According to the resume of former Sony employee Martin Linklater -- who now works at Bizarre Creations -- an all-new Wipeout game is in development for the PS3. Linklater's curriculum vitae claims that he was working on the unannounced game prior to the January staff cuts that cost him his job at Sony Liverpool.
    "Unreleased Wipeout Project (PS3) - Technical Director," reads the resume. "Responsible for physics and collision system (based on Wipeout Pure), code systems architecture and programming team management."
    Recent Wipeout games have had a mixed reception from fans, and a new entry in the series is always welcome. It's not known if this new Wipeout is still in development following Sony Liverpool's layoffs, but it would be highly reasonable to assume that more of the franchise is coming in some way, shape or form. I doubt anybody would be against another installment, either.

    Sounds like he was a programmer/coder for the game. Dunno... but CVs tend to amplify/exaggerate a candidates skillset. IMO, he was out of a job and looking for employment when he was sending out his CV.

    Now employed at Bizarre Creations though. WipEout is history now.

    Good luck Mr Linklater

    Based on the article Edge magazine did on games studios in Liverpool about two moths, SL are now working on smaller projects. At least that's the impression I got from the Studio Liverpool interview as they mentioned that they were scaling back a bit and there was no mention of a new WipEout game. I'm sure anyone still at SL that come on here could clarify about what they're doing currently, but I wouldn't get too hopeful after what has happened.
