There’s a good chance that Burnout is about to make a comeback. The last game in the series dates back to 2018, when Burnout Paradise Remastered was launched.
Indications of a return of Burnout come from Stellar Entertainment, which previously worked on Burnout Paradise Remastered, Need for Speed: Remastered and Need for Speed Unbound.
The studio is currently hiring to develop an AAA arcade racing game for PC and “Gen 5 consoles.” The game would be developed with the Unreal Engine 5 and should shake up the racing scene.
That certainly sounds ambitious. A hint was also dropped via social media that it could be a new Burnout, by teasing that the game would contain the necessary collisions and crashes.
Sounds like Burnout, right? Stellar Entertainment was founded by Paul Ross, who worked at Burnout developer Criterion for 16 years.
