Nordic Games resurrecting MX vs. ATV series

Downloadable MX vs. ATV Supercross out in 2014 for 360, PS3, PC, Mac, and Linux

The THQ fallout saw Nordic Games purchase Darksiders, Red Faction, Destroy All Humans!, and MX vs. ATV earlier this year for $4.9 million. Now, Nordic is making some moves with their new IPs by bringing back the MX vs. ATV series with MX vs. ATV Supercross.

Nordic has assembled a team of former MX vs. ATV staff, with the development studio based in Phoenix Arizona. The press release notes that it's "no coincidence the team is based" out of Phoenix as that's where this series all began back in the mid-90s. Then the press release made this horrible joke that actually made me smirk: "Perhaps one can be forgiven for borrowing from the well-worn cliché: the Phoenix has truly risen from the (digital) ashes." At least they didn't use Daft Punk lyrics to make the pun.

The team is lead by Ken George, plus the development team includes veterans such as Dave Dwire, Chris Gilbert, Mike Mamula, Brad Bowling, Scott Hofmann, Justin Walsh, and David Knudsen. The team is also maintaining existing MX vs. ATV Alive and Reflex code in order to bring back as many features as possible such as multiplayer on consoles, Motoclub Depot, and more to be announced.

MX vs. ATV Supercross is due for release in 2014 as a downloadable title, and will be hitting the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows, Mac, and Linux.
