Reboots of Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi reportedly in early development at SEGA
Alert the radio stations! This news is crazy!
Reputable news outlet Bloomberg has reported that SEGA is currently developing “big-budget reboots” of the much beloved but long forgotten Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi series.
These will be the first releases as part of SEGA’s “super game” initiative, a multi-step plan to develop large-scale next-gen games using Microsoft Azure - in an attempt to find their own global IP hit, much like Epic Games did with Fortnite.
Both projects are in early development, with Crazy Taxi just over a year along. A launch isn’t expected for another 2-3 years, and there is still the possibility of cancellation.
