by

EA announced today that its newly-formed Australian mobile studio Firemonkeys (the product of a merger between Firemint and IronMonkey) is working on a sequel to Firemint's popular iOS titles Real Racing and Real Racing 2.

Real Racing 2 is getting a sequel.

Real Racing 3 will be released later this year and will incorporate a number of new features, including a 22-car grid, all-new licensed tracks, and cars from manufacturers including Porsche, Dodge, and Audi.

For the first time in the series, the game will also include a full line-up of real-world tracks, including Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Silverstone.

The rebranded Firemonkeys studio will be based in EA's Melbourne, Australia, office and will work on new intellectual property, in addition to Firemint's and IronMonkey's current products. These include Flight Control, Real Racing, and SPY Mouse (Firemint), along with Mass Effect Infiltrator, Dead Space for mobile, and The Sims FreePlay (IronMonkey).

Funny, I've actually played the second one. My iPhone 3G could barely handle it though, so I doubt I could even touch the third one :(
