  • According to a report from Bloomberg, Sega is working on revivals of Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi.
  • The two games are part of Sega's "Super Game" plan, which has the company building to achieve the success of online titles such as Fortnite.
  • Both games are reportedly still early in development.

Sega appears to be working on revivals of Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi, two of the company's IP that go all the way back to the days of the Dreamcast.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Sega is developing reboots of these two games as part of the company's "Super Game" business strategy. The "Super Game" program is Sega's plan for building massive online experiences on the level of Epic Games' Fortnite.

Per Bloomberg's sources, the new Crazy Taxi has been in development for at least a year and could be released within the next two or three years. The report also notes that both games are still early in development overall and could still be canceled. The report also notes that the "Super Game" project, led by Sega game chief Shuji Utsumi, currently encompasses four games.

Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi were both developed for the Sega Dreamcast, being released in 2000 for the platform, which ended up being Sega's final home console.

Sega previously announced a partnership with Microsoft in the creation of the "Super Game" project, as the company will be using Microsoft's Azure infrastructure to build its online experiences. Another upcoming title in the Super Game project is a first-person shooter being built by a European studio, widely believed (but not confirmed) to be Creative Assembly, a team primarily known for strategy games like Total War: Warhammer 3.
