A couple of days back, a logo that bore a striking resemblance to the one used in Turn 10's popular Forza series surfaced. That sparked a flurry of speculation about Forza 3, which is also being rumored to be a shoo-in for an E3 2009 appearance.
Well, it looks like Turn 10 has decided to have a bit of fun with all the rumors and speculation surrounding their next game. On the studio's Twitter account, a link to the logo of their new game was posted. And what is it, you ask? Well...
Yup. Forza Watersport. Joystiq notes though that another logo (the one on the right) without the "Watersport" text was also spotted on Turn 10's site, so yeah, this could all be in good fun. But then again there's this quote from the Forza 2 Weekly Pitpass Report back in March 2009 pointed out by a commenter on the source article:
What makes our photos particularly crazy and dynamic is the fact that our water physics have gone beyond just about any watersports game you've seen on a console, simulating waves, ripple effects, and surface tension to the next level of realism. Of course it s a friendly competition (if you even want to call it that) and primarily we ve been using these pictures to further along the visual look of our next game. This is a very good thing, and judging by the visual difference between our first batch and the latest we ve made some very significant progress. At the very least, we have the nicest collection of superboats ever captured in screenshots.
The emphasis there is mine. So either Turn 10's just pulling our legs or we'll see watercraft included in their next game. Let's all just wait and see if they have anything to announce at E3.
