    Well in 48 months and 6 days will be Wipeout's 30th anniversary [29th Sep 2025]

    If SONY don't make something before then, I would hope they would at least have something Wipeout to celebrate it's 30th birthday.

    The mobile game is on Google play and it is terrible, 99% of reviews are 1 star.
    I Uninstalled after 20mins.

    The guy who initially "leaked" the news of a new game tweeted this a while ago:



    I’m not giving up hope

    Judging by others response, I'm not surpised.

    FALSE HOPE with this one IMHO.

    I played for half an hour, got to rank 15, got bored. You know me and my love of Wipeout... But, I haven't been quite so equally frustrated, angry and disappointed all in one go about a game as I have this in a long time... 😭 I really wanted to like it too.

    The Google Play Store says that it is not available in my region. I found the apk- and obb-files online and installed the game and now the Google Play page agrees that the game is installed so technically it is available for anybody to try out. I don't know if ingame purchases will work.

    Just received the news of a possible WipEout game...
    Well, I'm so happy it has been revealed not to be that "WipEout game" on mobile... (well at least I hope) just watched 2 minutes of gameplay and proceeded to close the video. I don't understand why this game even came out.

    I really have hope for a new WipEout game, but at the same time I hope it won't be a remaster or something like that again...
    don't get me wrong, I LOVED Omega, but the franchise needs a new title. I mean, if it turns to be a remaster, yeah we old players are all super excited and happy, and then all this happiness will vanish after 2-3 months.. then we get the same situation of Omega, I think it's normal after all.
    WipEout always has been a perfect example of what amazing graphics and incredible smooth gameplay can be, I can only imagine on PS5. But WipEout needs to say "buy me because I'm fuc*ing cool" and not "buy me because of nostalgia", WipEout needs to have new content, new tracks, new graphics, new features, a deep and nice tutorial to guide new people to the game, nice balancing (pleaase don't get the example from 2048! ), and a reason to tempt and keep ALL players to play online (even if this I admit it could be hard for a game like WipEout, due to its nature). WipEout needs to attract also new people. WipEout NEEDS FRESH AIR.

    But of course these words comes from a lover of the series.. would a new game be affordable for the game industry? We need to be realistic, sadly. But well, for sure they won't obtain this with a remaster. So we can just hope

    I think that’s sensible, and I agree with you. It’s the best-case scenario, provided the new stuff is quality stuff and not some over-engineered game mechanics.

    Sadly, that’s probably not how the giants in the industry see things... But one can hope. After all, it’s just a racing game with ships, tracks and weapons, not a frigging AAA MMORPG with a 200M$ budget.

    Honestly speaking, for a mobile game I suppose it holds up, but the issue is we have been waiting so long for something new (Not remasters, or remakes, etc) so I suppose for most people it felt like dangling a carrot. Hence the huge disappointment for people.

    Another issue is it feels so much like a cut a paste job from people who have no love for the games. It's as if they've gone; "Oh, Wipeout? Hah yeah, there's still a niche market for that, lets slap a mobile game together as a cash cow and just throw in some ships they'll recognise from different eras to feed their nostagia, a few quirky characters to reference old games and that'll do." At least, that's how it feels to me. Even the music, which the games were always known for, feels janky and awkward. As does the artwork.

    As for a new title, I suppose it's a case of picking it up and testing the waters. At the moment, the trends seem to be craft games and Fortnite/Overwatch style FPS, as well as horror titles. Racing, at least in the circles I'm in, hasn't really been as hyped as it was back in the day. So it could be a gamble, but at the same time, it could revive that whole target audience once more.

    I just hope, if they do create a new game, they really think carefully about what made the past incarnations a success and use those to build it. And backstory. I absolutely want more world lore to devour. <3
