Former Bizarre Creations staff member Chris Davie has recently released two videos through his Tumblr account. Although he didn’t call the game Blur 2 it was referred to as a prototype of the developer’s final, unannounced project.

The prototype uses tech and assets from Blur but the first video shows Bizarre experimenting with new visual effects and primarily storms over the Brighton track.
This is taken from a closer to alpha stage. Showing off a whole new engine that was never used.
Chris stated on his Tumblr;
“When we were told the project was being canned and that the studio was facing closer, I bloody mindedly decided to keep working on the art on this track, so much work had gone into the game already, it seemed a shame that nobody would get to play a finished track, even the dev team, so my goal was to get this Dubai track as close to final as I could before the lights went out for good,”
“A couple of guys chipped in here and there and got some nice new bits for their (soon to be required) portfolios, and I started grabbing old assets from previous projects to fill in bits of the scene that hadn’t been started.”
Davie said the track still needed destructible objects and animated scenery to be in a complete alpha form.
