Italian developer Milestone has revealed it’ll be taking two new titles to GDC in San Francisco later this month as the studio looks to lay out its plans for what should be a monumental 2017.
Leading the line will be MXGP3 – The Official Motocross Videogame, the latest in Milestone’s officially licensed Motocross series. Sporting a major improvement in graphics – lighting, particles and textures all noticeably enhanced – as well as deformable terrain and dynamic weather, MXGP3 is set to bring Motocross fans closer to the sport they love than ever before.
Published by Square Enix, MXGP3 – The Official Motocross Videogame will be available from spring 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and Windows PC®/STEAM™.
Also making its way to GDC will be a brand new and currently unannounced IP, set to showcase Milestone’s continued mastery of the motorsports arena. Both games will be playable to GDC Expo attendees on the Italian trade body AESVI’s stand in the South Hall, pav. 1902. Direct feeds of both games can also be made available to journalists on request.
“This is our first ever GDC,” reveals Milestone’s V.P. Luisa Bixio. “That’s no coincidence, either. In our 21st year we’ve decided to take a longer look at the US market, and we should have some news to share with those we meet in San Francisco that lays out our plans for America in 2017. It’s exciting.”
Bixio adds that Milestone’s appearance on the AESVI stand is a “sign of the growing strength of the Italian video games industry.”
She continued, “We’re one of the biggest studios in Italy at the moment, having jumped from 50 employees just a few years ago to nearly 200 today. All the signs point to continued growth for us in the years ahead, and the Italian games scene as a whole.”
