Yesterday, the Australian Classification Board gave an “M” rating to the previously unannounced Fast & Furious: Showdown, listing it as a multi-platform title developed by Firebrand and published by Activision Blizzard.
Fast & Furious’ classification page details that the “M” was issued due to “moderate impact” violence, and apart from developer and publisher details, offers little else about the game.
It’s safe to assume that Showdown is based upon the popular Fast & Furious film franchise — previously called The Fast & The Furious, but recently trimmed down for an upcoming sequel — as Firebrand Games have a history of developing racing games themselves. Firebrand has created many racing titles for handheld devices, such as Dirt 2, Need for Speed: Nitro and Cars 2, all for the Nintendo DS, plus NASCAR Unleashed on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii and the 3DS. Firebrand recently developed the 3DS and Wii versions of Need for Speed: The Run.
We’ve reached out to Activision Blizzard for more information on the game.
