As we reported on earlier in the week, all signs were pointing to the rebirth of the classic vehicular combat series Carmageddon with the launch of a countdown website. We just now got confirmation that Stainless is indeed returning the franchise to prominence with Carmageddon: Reincarnation. According to the press release, the game will be a digital download title (no platforms announced yet) scheduled for sometime in 2012.

“Carmageddon has returned to its Indie developer roots, and the time is right to bring the game to a new audience,” said Patrick Buckland, CEO and Stainless co-founder. “Originally an ambitious title that tested the hardware limits of its day, we’re excited that the game will finally get the showcase it deserves on today’s platforms.”

“Carmageddon: Reincarnation will feature the same black humour and comic violence that made the original game such a success.” said Neil Barnden, Executive Director and Stainless co-founder.  “All the laughs, the crazy power-ups, and extreme destruction will return. We will make sure the existing fans get what they want and expect from a Carmageddon game, and a new generation discovers the delights of sliding into a Cunning Stunt.”
