    Oh looky looky what day it is today (in some parts of the world anyway) and lo and behold what appears in my email inbox? Why some supposed evidence that an announcement about TDU2 was made early and has since now been removed. I have to admit though, the email looked genuine, I mean it looks like it took 5 maybe 8 mins to type out but even after reading all that and checking the mail headers I arrived at 2 little attachments, well not really little but 2 images attached and when I viewed them I have to admit my scepticism subsided a little.

    Now it's your turn, could this be a very cruel test of an April Fool's joke by Atari but someone managed to snag an image of it or is it somewhat true and there is an announcement coming uhh ...."soon".

    I'll leave it you guys to ponder and please keep it civil, thanks.

    UPDATE#1
    Received an email this morning (01/04 / 04/01) showing a supposed screen capture of Google's cached version of the infogrames page. Anyone got the time to check this?

    Check attachments 4 & 5 for email and screenshot itself.

    One thing that really makes me think "hmmm...?" is the image isn't Photoshopped or nothing, ok it's cropped but there's nothing been marked out as it's very easy to see when someone has tried to hide or clone stamp something just by brightening the image up.

    well maybe, but why take it off, and why the day before April fool, if it is true great news but if not, i'm not bothered as i know tdu has been a huge success so they would be stupid not to continue the title

    Okay, so we have shots of two different links to the article, but no actual article? Fake.

    From the way I saw it, the second image looks like he's tried to get the article but it's not there BUT the text link was not removed and is still viewable along with the link to it. If you try the link itself it just redirects back to the main homepage.

    we know TDU2 is in the pipeline allready dont we, i mean, vibroboy was whispering about the choice of island even before TDU1 came out

    and now i cant find his post cause MANY of the users have been deleted from the atari forums database, their posts now registering as ones of guests.

    Gaming_guy and Craigie22 being the biggest ones i noticed, but vibroboy is too

    AND NOW I CANT BLEEDING FIND VIBROBOY'S POSTS BECAUSE ALL HIS POSTS ARE 'GUEST' ONES

    AAAAAAAAAAAARGH

    Alright sorry guys I have to effectively close this as I have been asked to by Tenebra hence Atari. Guess we'll find out in the future either way. :(

    Final email from our mysterious friend and even though it never really said much, I just have to say thank you for the info and the screenshots, the TDU2 community thanks you.

    Mr Pirlo Olfa. :D

    I doubt it.

    However, TDU has been around on XBOX 360 since 16th September 2006, so It could be possible for an early 2009 release.

    Maybe Atari/Eden are just planning for it.

    I dunno, there is evidence to prove it's real, and the same for fake.

    I don't get it? Have you actually removed a screen-shot which is why I'm confussed, as there is the cached thingy screen-shot ... or are (unlikely) being a rebel and leaving it on there? Sorry for me being confussed ... but it's annoying :p

    Some please explain this to me :p
