It appears that the domain Motorstorm3.com is registered to Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. Curiously www.motorstorm3.com takes you directly to Sony’s Official Playstation Website. So with that, I ran a quick Who Is search and sure enough, www.motorstorm3.com was created by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe on the 19th of January 2010 with an expiry date listed for the 19th of January 2012. It looks like Motorstorm 3 could therefore be on the way to Playstation 3. Motorstorm 3 would be the fourth game in the franchise after the original Motorstorm, sequel Pacific Rift and PSP incarnation Arctic Edge. Hopefully we might get an E3 reveal. Check out the registration information below. Post your thoughts and comments below.

UPDATE:

Sony have responded to this news:

“It’s not uncommon for us to secure the URLs containing the names of our successful IP, and those actions should not be interpreted as an announcement of a new title in a franchise.”
