Sega Europe has today confirmed that an enhanced version of OutRun2 is currently in development for the Xbox at UK-based Sumo Digital. The Xbox game will boast a number of features not found in Sega-AM2's arcade original, including Xbox Live support, an all-new single-player mission mode, and unlockable content. "OutRun2 is one of our most exciting games this year, and after months of speculation, we're delighted to be able to announce its development for Xbox," said Matthew Woodley, European marketing director at Sega Europe. "OutRun is an all-time classic, and OutRun2 is perfectly positioned to build on this legacy and capture a big share of the racing game market. The title delivers a unique driving experience, which we are confident gamers will find hard to resist. The game is looking amazing on Xbox and we're extremely proud to be able to showcase it at this year's E3." "For Sega to choose Sumo to work on OutRun2 is a great honor," added Carl Cavers, director at Sumo Digital. "I believe our professionalism and passion won us this opportunity and we're enjoying every minute of being involved. We're working hard with both Sega and AM2 to ensure that the console version of OutRun2 does the arcade original justice and expands its classic gameplay for the home user. It's a delight to be working on one of Sega's crown jewels." It's not yet clear how many online players the Xbox version of OutRun2 will support, but Sega has revealed that the playable version at E3 will boast network play for two to four drivers.
