PR2 will never be as good or as popular as it once was. Making a new version wouldn’t attract new players into playing the game, because of how old this game was. It was good for it’s time, but has became considered “garbage” now, and there are many other games much better than this. Besides, most people don’t even use computers anymore, they use their iPads, so if you want to attract gamers into Platform Racing, you’ll have to create an app for it, and since only a small percent of those apps become popular, don’t expect anyone to play your new game.
Gaming has evolved over the years with newer games superior to old ones because of advances in technology and game development. PR2 was only big back in the day because online flash games were rare and now they are so many of them, and even then flash games have became a thing in the past.
You could try creating a game and putting it on Steam, but chances are nobody but maybe 1000 people will buy your game, and most of them will get tired of it because it hasn’t done anything new or innovative.
Don’t even think there’s a slight chance of PR2 becoming popular again. The closest it ever went to popularity since 2015, was when 5uperTrinity made a minecraft map OctoCourse using the blocks from Platform Racing 2. There were a few youtubers that did play the map, but considering that the game was dead and most people forgot about it or never even played it since the beginning, nearly everyone probably thought that the blocks were new and original, rather than taken from a crappy old game. If this isn’t going to help the game, then nothing will.
The only good thing is that Jiggmin is no longer adding new updates, but since level quality has declined over the years, with only 2-3 new levels a day and every one of them either being a crappy level made by a 3 year old or an unoriginal Trap/Frust, there will not be any levels worth playing ruining the game. All the good lvlmakers, Rammjet, Poozy, Overbeing, Shadowfax, and Jiggmin are gone. The greatest levels PR2 has ever seen are Hat Factory, Zerostar, Volcanic Inferno, and The Golden Compass. Every level made since 2015 is nothing compared to these.
The only reason I’m still here is for Nostalgia.
But we should learn when to move on with our lives and let things go.
To All PR2 Players Still Around: GET A LIFE!
