Signs are pointing towards some kind of revival for Carmageddon after the official website (http://www.carmageddon.com/) returned with a rather ominous countdown.
Carmageddon first appeared in 1997 as a PC game, and sold around two million copies. However, the games which appeared afterwards failed to live up to the hype. Carmageddon TDR 2000 was the last to appear, in the year 2000, and it bombed.
The IP is currently owned by Square Enix Europe, following the acquisition of Eidos in 2009. The countdown should end on the 1st of June.
