Bigben Interactive and WRC 5 developers Kylotonn Games have announced a new game based on the classic Isle of Man TT races to be titled 'TT Isle of Man - Ride on the Edge'. Due for release in 2017, TT Isle of Man - Ride on the Edge will be the first game in over 8 years to feature the legendary winding ribbon of tarmac that is cycle road racing's premium race meeting since TT Race Legends by Jester Interactive hit the PlayStation 2 in 2008. David Cretney MLC, the Department of Economic Development’s political representative for Tourism and Motorsport commented: "The partnership between Bigben Interactive and the Isle of Man Government represents an opportunity not only to generate additional commercial income but also to increase the profile of the TT Races and broaden the event’s appeal to a wider, younger demographic working alongside a world class partner in the gaming world." Benoît Clerc, Head of Software at Bigben Interactive: "For several years now, our team works together with Kylotonn’s developers to create and offer the best depictions of some of the most spectacular racing events like the Isle of Man TT races or the World Rally Championship. "By creating 1/1 the iconic 37¾ miles of the race, we already know that all the motorbike fans will feel the speed and the excitement of being part of the Isle of Man TT races." Work has already begun with staff visiting the famous location in preparation for starting work in the studio recreating the 37¾ mile TT Mountain Course. No firm details regarding how the track will be captured in game has yet to be revealed, so our hopes of a fully laser scanned version of the circuit can't yet be confirmed or denied. Due for release sometime in 2017 TT Isle Of Man – Ride on the Edge "will feature many of the leading teams and riders who will be recreated digitally to accurately represent their team liveries and bike manufacturers". Proposed for release on both PC and console platforms TT Isle of Man - Ride on the Edge could provide an entertaining and interesting option to fill the void in bike racing related games left open for far to long.
