Disney, so far, has only revealed a few of the single-player aspects of the game. An online multi-player component could be unveiled at E3. Undoubtedly, the thought of bringing down a bridge or a communications tower on top of a friend will further boost the buzz factor of the game.
Players will have to be patient, though. "Split/Second" isn’t due to come out until sometime in 2010.
Because the ship date is so far out and so little of the game has been seen, analysts say it’s tough to make sales predictions at this point.
With that in mind, Scott Mucci of GamerMetrics, a forecasting group that tracks the hit potential of titles based on gamer interest on the IGN enthusiast Web sites, says interest has been fairly stable and the game could perform well, especially if Disney publishes it during the first calendar quarter of next year—a time frame that is often devoid of AAA titles.
