Crazy Taxi’s Reboot Is Considered a “Triple-A” Game According To SEGA

Crazy Taxi Reboot

SEGA’s announcement of reboots from its classic franchises during The Game Awards 2023 back in December has left many excited. Among those on the list is the beloved Crazy Taxi, and SEGA claims it’s a “triple-A” game.

While there have not been many details since that fateful broadcast, an article from Japan Times surfaced, suggesting the production quality of the game.

SEGA’s Creative Officer, who also runs the company’s support studio in Sapporo, Takaya Segawa mentions the names of the projects they are working on alongside “bases in Tokyo and abroad”. Namely, Hatsune Miku: Colorful Stage! and Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis. Further, he went on to state that they are also in active participation in the development of “triple-A titles,” which includes “Crazy Taxi”.

Yet, while the studio he handles is crucial in many of SEGA’s developing projects, it appears that its function has been mainly support for now. That is, saying that the studio is not developing any independent titles at the moment, but has it as part of their goals.

At present, we don’t have any titles developed independently by the studio, but we intend to do so in the future.

First appeared in arcades back in 1999, Crazy Taxi’s popularity has it releasing on consoles as well, such as the Dreamcast. In this game, players take on the role of a taxi driver as he travel across the city taking passengers and dropping them off designated locations, all while performing stunts for points in between.
