The SSX franchise was ridiculously popular and it was a bit of a shock when EA killed it off when they decided that the EA Sports Big brand had ran its course, but if you’ve been missing a bit of mountain action then good news may be on the horizon. Alain Tascan from EA Montreal was asked “Looking at some of your other franchises, are we going to see another SSX?” to which he replied “Ah, SSX. We have a big catalogue and we were talking about what people like. I think this is something we will look at in the future to see if it makes sense to revive the franchise.”
Then, when asked “Well, SSX was a very popular franchise and has a lot of fans – at the moment do you think there’s sense in bringing it back?” He went on to say “It’s a little bit early to talk about it, but I feel… I know internally it is a franchise that people love because it was successful and good, and it reminds me of when we were young, and I feel if the market is there and is ready for a new one then we’ll consider it.”
So it appears that if people demand it then there is every chance of the franchise making a comeback, In the comments below let us know what franchises you’d like to see being given the next gen treatment, my votes on Road Rash.
