Understandably, Buckley wasn't too forthcoming, but confirmed the Liverpool based team wants to quickly release an iteration in the form of Wipeout HD, which should be officially announced in August or even earlier at E3. 1UP learned Wipeout HD is simply the first step, with a "major" Wipeout release penciled in for sometime in 2008. Wipeout HD will feature a online multiplayer mode and, while unconfirmed, likely HD-enabled tracks from Wipeout Pulse, as well.
Wipeout HD should arrive on the PlayStation Network before the end of the year.
So two wipeout games coming. One just a downloadable Wipeout HD version and then a full fledged PS3 version in 08. Good to see the Sony Franchises returning. With this and Socom both getting two different games (downloadable smaller game + bigger retail game) it looks like Sony and its 2nd parties are making a lot of PS3 games.
Thanks to Blacksaber for the sig!
