    Default Nick Burcombe announces something WipEout related (not a game)

    To be clear, something strictly WipEout related will be announced in a few weeks, but itís NOT a game, and apparently not a book, nor a model.

    He mentioned that it's much better than a book... Is it the once planned movie or some series set in WipEout universe? I always loved the lore and the settings and thought it would be great to see it in something more than games. Anyway, I just hope that whatever it is, it will shine some light onto the franchise once more. Ace Combat recently came back from the dead, maybe WipEout can too.

    Well.... a wow factor of 11/10, itís not a new game but itís better than a book...

    I donít think it is a movie, but what about a TV show ??! Jeff Bezos loves the sci-fi show The Expanse and itís one of the reasons Amazon bought it from Syfy to produce new seasons... maybe heís also a fan of WipEout ?

    He's replied that it's
    Not a Book
    Not a Model
    Not a TV show
    Not a Game

    What's that leave you ?
    Since Sony now owns the IP to Wipeout, I'm guessing whatever it is would have had to have their blessing, or even instigated by them.

    Totaku didnít seem to struggle getting the license for their models. And people like Shaun Mooney have no issue distributing (selling?) fan art using their IP.

    Other things it could be: merch, comics, any type of fan art.

    He mentioned "side project", "not from me". So yeah, any form of fan art.

    I think it's something bigger than the fan art. He said "You've seen nothing like this" and replied "Nope. Way cooler" when asked if it's a book. I don't think he would have said that in case of fan art. However, he also commented upon someone saying it might be a Netflix or Disney+ series (specifically mentioning these services) that "That's so wildly ambitious that I'm worried you'll be disappointed.", so he muddied the water quite a bit. Comic or some branded product (drones, if they can't be called a model) maybe? Documentary? I really think we will have to just wait and see.

    I was also thinking some sort of remote controlled hover/AG craft, but if that is considered a model ?

    A guy in the USA did have a working one of these several years ago, but for whatever reason it sort of fizzled out.

    Since it's not a book, a model, a TV show or a game, and it requires 4-5 weeks of preparation, it should at least be something more grandiose than just fanart.
    Maybe an animated short, or a customized manned quadcopter? Sony's been experimenting with making movies out of game franchises they own, so there's also that possibility.
