THQ Revs Up MX vs ATV Untamed

In the most expansive cross-platform launch in the MX vs ATV franchise’s history, THQ has announced the development of MX vs ATV Untamed across the Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii and DS.

With MX vs ATV Untamed, Rainbow Studio is taking the world’s top selling off-road racing franchise to new heights, promising open-world outdoor environments, an in-depth X-Cross career mode, an all-new EnduroCross mode, online play, and the return of the series’ “Rhythm Racing” physics engine featuring numerous improvements taking advantage of the next-gen consoles for smoother control and an even more realistic off-road racing experience.

“The MX vs ATV franchise is the entrenched off-road leader and has evolved into one of the top racing properties,” said Bob Aniello, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, THQ. “The expansion to the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 system, and innovative game-play made possible with the franchise’s debut on Wii and Nintendo DS, position MX vs ATV Untamed to significantly grow our global share of the racing market.”

“We’ve taken the core MX vs ATV racing experience and tailored game-play to match the strengths of each individual gaming machine,” said Jack Sorenson, executive vice president of worldwide studios, THQ. “The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, Wii and PlayStation 2 system versions, the PSP system version, and the DS version will all deliver unique experiences that capture the franchise’s strengths and maximize the fun gamers have on their system of choice.”

MX vs ATV Untamed is on tap for a release in January 2008. We’ll report back as soon as we know more.
