Just read this:

QUOTE
Sony Pictures Animation has pre-emptively picked up rights to the Atari video game "Rollercoaster Tycoon," and is developing the project as a live-action/CGI hybrid.

The "Tycoon" franchise, created by Chris Sawyer, is a popular series of computer games that simulate a combination of designing roller coasters and amusement park management. Each game challenges players with open-ended amusement park management and development while allowing them to construct and customize their own unique roller coasters.

The games are popular in the PC world, generating more than $300 million in sales and giving Atari bragging rights for having the third-best-selling PC title of all time in the U.S.

Don't think we will see another game soon, this article suggests a film version. :S

I saw its a film that is in the making (which sounds really dull to me, but we will have to wait and see...) but if Atari don't release a new game to go with it I would be surprised.

Film?

I don't understand how a film version could really work wacko.gif

Would like to see a new game come out though, better be the old school RCT/RCT2, I hate 3 with a passion.

Lost all of the games soul in my opinion.

I am willing to turn a blind eye to poor safety regimes as long as they get the theming right. In Six Flags, we get neither.

If it is a film and it does get greenlighted I would imagine a game to accompany the film release would be a definite, considering the popularity of previous incarnations.

I am still getting the news releases about this - every time I read a new slant on it, and every time I think why? Maybe a remake of Rollercoaster might be heading our way?

Well it seems that a RCT4 could possibly be coming at some point in the future, which is fantastic news!

Over at the Atari forums, Atari have started a thred stating that they are busy thinking about the next installment of Rollercoaster Tycoon and would like to hear what the community would want in the game.

Check it out!
