SEGA Amusement CEO says Outrun 3 is ‘on our radar’

maxresdefault

SEGA Amusement has been making the rounds with old school SEGA fans ever since they announced Daytona 3 Championship USA earlier this year. It seems that SEGA Amusement will continue resurrecting old SEGA franchises, at least that’s what it sounds like. In a recent interview with T3, SEGA Amusement International CEO Paul Williams had this to say about a possible OutRun 3:

“Outrun 3 is not on plan at the moment. It is something that is on our radar but I cannot discuss more than that.”

It is interesting that he even spoke about the possibility of OutRun 3, considering how weird SEGA PR used to be in the past. It also seems, from what I gather from the quote that SEGA Amusement has a sort of short list of franchises they would like to bring back. Its not surprising that Daytona 3 Championship USA is one of the first titles considering how popular the original was. Paul Williams also talks about how they work with SEGA Japan developers and why its hard for them to bring SEGA Japanese games over to the states. Very interesting read.

  1. I’m stoked. I just hope that this time they’ll leave themselves an easy out if they use a license again so they don’t have to pull the entire game.

    Credit should be given to T3.com for the long informative interview (soon a part 2 of it as well).

      You’ re right, Marco Zangirolami for T3.com made the interview with the CEO of Sega Amusements International, not arcade heroes who just commented the interview.

  4. Oh my God, I would love a new OutRun! That’s always been my favorite driving series.
