Motorstorm 2, the sequel to the PS3 launch title, is coming this Christmas according to the BBC.
The game is said to move away from the muddy environments of the first game and will now take place in more tropical locations.
"Gamers will be able to race around a lush island environment, full of interactive vegetation," said Darren Waters in his blog. "The game will feature four-player split-screen action, righting one of the obvious failings of the first game.
"The title is some months away from completion but the game's engine looked rock solid and the graphics were as impressive as one would expect from one of the best-looking racing franchises."
