Having seen the first entry into this reasonably new franchise received to mixed reviews back in 2018, Milestone appeared to have doubled down the effort for the second edition to the official Supercross videogame, adding further polish and improvements to what is at its core a very solid racing title.

According to Milestone they have, and as such the upcoming title could well be a marked improvement over the original release. Featuring things such as expanded career mode, substantially enhanced customisation options and improved track editing functionality, this looks very promising indeed - especially for fans of the popular bike racing category.
