Former Wipeout devs focusing on non-racing title

Late last year Sony shut down Studio Liverpool, the studio behind the Wipeout series. Some key members have gone on to form a new studio called Sawfly, but don't expect it to revive the Wipeout spirit. Apparently its initial plans are for something entirely different.

Even Wipeout 2048 had zombies

Even Wipeout 2048 had zombies

We just can't seem to outrun zombies. The undead have run amok in movies, television shows, and games. But who would've imagined they would end up infecting the futuristic Wipeout series?

No, Wipeout 2048 won't come with a Carmageddon-inspired zombie mode where you run over zombies.
