Is Burnout Paradise Getting Remade?

A reckless rumor based on a Brazillian retail listing may have given away some pretty exciting news.

8

The last notable rumor without a reliable source turned out to be a complete wash, so take this new one with a grain of salt. Burnout is a racing franchise that is highly regarded to this day, but completely absent from the gaming economy. That could change in early 2018 as a Brazillian blog seems to have spotted a listing for a remake that will release in March 2018.

Courtesy of ResetEra, the forum that rose from the controversy spun by a NeoGAF founder, user TheBrokenMan spotted a rumor that leans on a listing from a Brazillian retailer. It has some version of Burnout Paradise coming out on PS4 and Xbox One with a $45 price tag. The blog notes that gaming costs a bit more in Brazil, so the price may be closer to $30. 

Whether or not this particular rumor turns out to be true, more Burnout is needed in this gaming ecosystem. An arcade racer like this would play well on the Nintendo Switch as well, but EA isn't playing very nice with the hybrid console thus far. We'll update this story as more information is made available.

      On this we agree Charles.

        I thought you were anti-weed, why would you want more burnouts?

          I am fine with legitimate medicinal burnouts.

      If it does get remade, or they create a new open world Burnout game, I hope they introduce route barriers for events. Ending up on completely the wrong road during a race because you missed a turn isn't any fun.

      More takedown, less paradise.

      Though fuck it, we all know EA will lootbox anything into oblivion.

        Now I'm imagining loot crates that unlock different types of crashes and I hate you for it.

          That sounds positively optimistic. I'm imagining getting stat upgrades from crates.

        I'd love to have a Burnout 3 remake so I can race online again.

        Paradise is a fine open world thing, but actual racing and junk is way better in Takedown compared to the streets and routes of Paradise City. Plus it's got a crash mode. They could even bring in some tracks from other games as DLC.

        Give it to me!

      If they released a Burnout-style game on Switch I may never see my children again
