Sega's "Super Games" Initiative Includes New F2P Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio (Bloomberg Report)


Historian, Reporter
As reported by Bloomberg's Takashi Mochizuki, Sega's "super game" initiative will include big-budget reboots of Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio.

A few highlights from the report:
  • A new Crazy Taxi has been in development for over a year
  • The goal is to get the game out within 2-3 years
  • It and a new Jet Set Radio are in early stages of development and could still be shelved if they don't work out
  • The goal here is to tap Sega's back-catalogue to create global hits that can successfully rival Fortnite's free-to-play model

  • Alongside Crazy Taxi and JSR, Sega is also developing a "super game" FPS at one of its European studios
  • Last year, Sega stated that the goal for this game was to create a large community and bring in $780 million in lifetime revenue

  • The "super game" initiative is being led by Sega's Shuji Utsumi, a former PlayStation executive
  • The company's super games are being developed using Microsoft's Azure cloud platform

There are a few other details in the report, although you need to be subscribed to Bloomberg to view them, and I don't want to post it all here.
