Mark your gaming calendar for December 31st, folks.
A new mysterious 'MXM project' from Milestone, the developers of WRC3 and MUD, has emerged, with an intriguing teaser website counting down to the official announcement in 20 days time on December 31st.
A quick Google search on MXM reveals this motocross decals website, which points to the possibility of a new bike game from Milestone. The motocross implications could possibly be hinting at a sequel to MUD, although the emphasis on this being an entirely new project hints at something a little less predictible.
At any rate, what do you think it could be? As ever, you can let us know in the comments below, on our Facebook page or on our forum. Happy guessing!

Probably a new motocross game (a sequel of MUD) but with a new name.
Maybe its a game based on the Dakar rally? It starts on January 5th, so perhaps Milestone are out there gathering data for a new game - MXM - Moto-Cross-Machines!
Would be great to race the different types of vehicles that participate in the Dakar in some sort of game.
Not sure if anyone's done a game based on the Dakar rally - surely theres enough history and scenery in the rally for game content?
Flight to Lima, boarding at gate number 77?
I'll look forward to it and for once I'm not bothered wether its DLC or not because in terms of racing sims, Assetto Corsa is definitely more friendly on your pocket - free multiplayer etc. I hope that doesn't change when it leaves early access.
Its nice to see that they're not using lens flare, it really annoys me when its used in cockpit view because cockpit view is often for a more realistic driving experience yet it can be ruined by lens flare which is an effect only present on lenses (unsurprisingly). *ehem* Next Car Game *ehem*.
Yes this certainly has huge potential and mixing bikes with cars could be a good thing in terms of investment. Bike games have often been a mixed bag in terms of reception, so perhaps we'll see some bikes in GT7 and then if that works out, a full blown Tourist Trophy 2 further down the line.
I'm not going to get my hopes up because there have been too many rumors for far to long. But after GT6 the only thing that would make me buy another GT title would be the addition of bikes (and a good selection of those at that).
In regards to Tourist Trophy, that game still holds up today. Not perfect (bikes a tad to floatly) but over all it gave me the closest sense of how it feels to...
once upon time I use to buy multiple copies of Milestone titles (PS3, PC, Euro and US versions) but not anymore. Why try to support a company that doesn't care about it's customers. Can't say that MotoGP 14 was a disappointment because it was about as good as expected and that's not saying much. Same issues as always......A LACK OF EFFORT. and as such after 4 laps I just put the game away....
