Milestone have revealed that their next MotoGP video game will be Valentino Rossi: The Game. They also revealed a new teaser to announce the game, which can be seen above.
9-times world champion Valentino Rossi is an icon of MotoGP racing, but it may come as some surprise that the company would base the next game in the MotoGP series on him. Whatever thoughts may be on this, we’ll be waiting till June next year to see the games actual release.
On the release, Luisa Bixio the V.P. of Milestone revealed:
“Milestone has been developing MotoGP for a few years, but the experience we are going to offer all motorcycle racing and Valentino fans this year is quite simply unique. Players can grapple with the entire 2016 official championship, but most of all they can experience the passion, professionalism and experience of Valentino Rossi, both in and out of the championship, with exclusive rally and flat track content, as well as much more that only the number 46 can offer. We also like to think of this as an Italian project par excellence, which we’re sure will be appreciated all over the world”
With Valentino Rossi adding:
“I’m happy to announce that I’ll participate in the making of Valentino Rossi The Game, along with the guys at Milestone. We chose to include both the most important elements of my MotoGP career, and all the extra circuit stuff that are so important to me, like Ranch, Rally and more. It will be fun to approach the game not only as a gamer, but also as a ‘test driver’. I’ll work with the development team to make sure all fans will get the best experience they ever had”
Valentino Rossi: The Game will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in June 2016.
