Red Bull Crashed Ice Kinect is currently being developed by Bongfish who's previous venture was a title some of you may be familiar with, Stoked. Game Director at Bongfish, Michael Putz, had this to say in regards to their new IP:

For any developer it's a huge opportunity getting their hands on a fresh IP like Crashed Ice. Combining the nature of this unique sport with the power of Kinect should result in an outstanding experience and evolve digital sports to its next level.
You can carve the ice, lace up the skates, party it up with your friends when Red Bull Crashed Ice Kinect skates its way to the XBLA sometime near the end of 2012 or the beginning of 2013.
