Bandai Namco has announced that they will publish MotoGP 14 in the Americas. This is the latest entry in Milestone’s motorcycle racing simulation, and it will be available on PS4, PS3, Vita, Xbox 360, and PC via Steam. Bandai Namco is targeting a release date of September 2014. MotoGP 14 features all the tracks and riders from the official 2014 and 2014 seasons, bringing plenty of content for racing fans to check out. I find it interesting that Milestone has chosen to only go for PS4 as the next gen option, but that’s just how things seem to work out sometimes. More details and a trailer are below.

SAN JOSE, Calif., (June 10, 2014) – Leading video game publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. today announced that MotoGP™14 will be racing to the Americas for the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system, Xbox 360® games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC® via STEAM in September 2014.
