Following Ridge Racer Unbounded, developer Bugbear Entertainment says it's "going back to our roots" with a new cartastic smash 'em up. The FlatOut creator has revealed a project it's referring to simply as "next car game," dropping a trailer that sees cars and debris tossed through the air with abandon in a destruction derby.

"This time we're going back to our roots--just like all of our fans have been asking us to do!" Bugbear says on the official website. "If you like what you see ... you're going to love it. It's all in-game footage!"

If your memories of FlatOut have been soured in recent years, don't worry: 2011's dire FlatOut 3: Chaos and Destruction was developed by another studio. "We never owned the name," Bugbear replied in the announcement trailer's comments on YouTube. "Publisher went bankrupt and the rights have been sold a number of times."

The yet-unnamed game is coming to PC and other yet-unannounced platforms.

        The Bugbear Flatout games had better DD than any of the Psygnosis games.

        I agree destruction derby was cool but the flatout games took it to the next level, except of course for the last flatout, that was made by a different developer, GOD THAT GAME SUCKED.

      Kind of wish they would go farther back and make a new Rally Trophy. I loved Flatout also so I'm still happy.
