A news for you guys that the supposed to be cancelled 4th Jet Moto game called Jet Moto 2124 was finally released by Jet Moto Central.


As a rule of that forums I can only share the thread and the Facebook links in order for you to see additional information such as the different players, powerups, stunts, bugs and glitches:

According to Wikipedia:
A fourth Jet Moto, called Jet Moto 2124, was being developed at Sony's 989 Studio in San Diego and was set to be based in the future. Production on the game began prior to the completion of Jet Moto 3. Level designers used Alias Power Animator 8.5 to create tracks for the game. Developers took inspiration from Syd Mead when coming up with concepts and designs for the game. Jet Moto 2124 would be the first in the series to take the player to locations off Earth, including Mars, the moon and one of Jupiter's moons, Europa. Additional real-world sponsors had been solicited for in-game sponsoring, including Doritos, Slim Jim, and Body Glove. The game was to have redesigned physics and increased speed, giving 2124 "the Jet Moto feel but with Wipeout speed." Inspiration was also taken from freestyle motocross, and the ability would have been given to the player to do in air-tricks such as the heel clicker and can-can, similar to modern day tricks performed on specialized dirtbikes.

Developers cited lack of marketing support, camera issues and a flawed physics model for the jet motos as a few of the main concerns with the game's development. Other concerns included a new company president that did not support the game, and the studio director seeking to widen all the tracks, causing a significant increase in development time. These, along with lackluster sales of Jet Moto 3 caused the game to be cancelled two years into production, just prior to beta testing.

Sadly Pacific Coast Power & Light, the development team who made Jet Moto 3 and this cancelled 2124 have never been able to make another Jet Moto game again.
They were purchased by THQ then Pacific reorganized into Locomotive Games and then THQ shut them down.

The previous team Singletrac that made Jet Moto 1 and 2 and Twisted Metal games, actually reorganized twice from Incognito Entertainment into Lightbox Interactive.
Lightbox made this third person shooting game called Starhawk has a vehicle called Sidewinder which foreshadowing the Jet Moto vehicles.
