A Peek At The Road Rash & Strike Reboots That Never Happened

Two video game series fondly remembered by fans, but almost completely untapped by Electronic Arts are motorcycle combat contest Road Rash and isometric military shooter Strike. EA hasn't made a new game in either of those series this generation, but it tried during the last.

We've seen hints of revivals and pre-release video of failed Road Rash reboots before, but video snooper Superannuation recently unearthed some rarely seen concepts of artwork for both series. Don't expect much more than a feeling for what these franchise updates could have been.

Both appear to have been in early development at EA Warrington, a studio shuttered by the company in 2006. The artwork in this gallery comes from artist Richard Cook, who lent his talents to Need For Speed: Underground, The Club and James Bond 007: Blood Stone.

The most recent Road Rash game was Game Boy Advance title Road Rash: Jail Break, a 2003 port of a PlayStation game. Fans of the Strike series haven't seen an entry since 1997's Nuclear Strike.
