Microsoft have said that no new instalment in the Project Gotham Racing series is currently in development.

Responding to a fan on Twitter, Microsoft Studios executive vice president, Phil Spencer, said that the company wasn’t focusing on the series due to the amount of other racing franchises.

He wrote: “We aren’t currently working on PGR. I really liked the franchise, really just down to [number] of racing franchises.”

The last instalment in the Xbox exclusive series was Project Gotham Racing 4, released in 2007 to critical acclaim.

The game’s developers, Bizarre Creations, along with Activision, released a spin-off game titled Blur in 2010 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
