Monster Jam Series Revival on the Books for 2019

By Kelly Packard, 7 months ago
Monster Jam truck racing and freestyle is a popular event year after year, but its video game releases have been less consistent. The series has been dormant since 2016, but that's about to change with a new licensing agreement announced during Gamescom week.

The publisher taking the wheel is none other than THQ Nordic, and Rainbow Studios, developers of the MX vs. ATV series, will be the developer on duty.

“We intend to create an experience that makes fans feel like they are in the driver’s seat, performing gravity-defying feats in front of packed stadiums inside the most recognizable trucks on planet Earth," said Klemens Kreuzer, Managing Director, THQ Nordic.

Jeff Bialosky, Vice President of Licensing and Retail Development at Feld Entertainment, owners of the Monster Jam show, hope the new games capture "every step of the journey from starting out at the Monster Jam University training facility learning the ropes all the way to competing and taking home the championship at Monster Jam World Finals."

The first Monster Jam game to come of the deal will be released in 2019.
