Bizarre Creations' last project before getting shut down

Remember Blur? It was that awesome racing game that was basically Mario Kart for adults by Bizarre Creations. Unfortunately that development studio was shut down shortly after Blur's release.

Well new footage of the last title Bizarre was working on has been revealed by Chris Davie,  former art director for the studio. While it's obviously some sort of sequel for Blur, Chris never states that this was officially a sequel. He just refers to his footage as "an announced, unfinished project."

The first video showcases new visual effects the studio was tinkering with, such as how racing with intense weather effects would be like. The second bit of footage depicts a near complete stage set in Dubai. It also shows off a brand new engine that Bizarre had developed, but sadly never got to ship a game with.

Despite the news of the studio closer, Chris continued to work on the Dubai stage as he felt it would be "a shame that nobody would get to play a finished track, even the dev team." He and a couple of others did what they could to develop the level right up until "the lights went out for good," but sadly never completed.

I would have loved a Blur sequel. How about you?
