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?
The screenshots look like photos, never underestimate the power of realistic looking trees. Assetto Corsa can we have these now please? 2D trees are so last year. Seriously though, this looks (graphically) a lot better than WRC 5 and given Milestone's background in racing games the physics are more likely to be decent. Haven't really see what Kylotonn can do though so I'm keeping an open...
I still play SBK2000 and SBK2001 regularly. Physics is pretty good but imo not quite as realistic as gp500. There are two camps on that argument dating all the way back to 2001! I agree SBK2001 is pretty good but the more you grow accustomed to the physics of motogp14 on the limit with no riding aids whatsoever and zero or low tcs plus a decent set-up the more one realises that motogp14 is...
Reason I misunderstood you Travis is that Dorna have already confirmed to Milestone that they are retaining the motogp licence for 2015. Milestone have already started work on motogp15. In fact they have been working on this for quite some time now as I understand it. Also we at xbla are provisionally lined up to commernce a beta testing programme on the game. We have been running monthly Q&A...
Here's a recent example (one of many) in which Milestone have listened to us and have acknowledged that improvements are needed in motogp14:

Now that it appears you will be retaining the Dorna licence for 2015 can you please address what is arguably the...
By the way, and I don't really endorse this concept myself (I would rather Milestone dropped it) the whole idea to combat the understeer in motogp14 is to use a manula "tuck" button. Hey presto..no understeer. Use the "tuck" as you come off the brakes and get on the power.
Personally I would much rather Milestone dropped the manual tuck requirement though. There is no manual "tuck" in...
