Developer Insight:
Test Drive Cycles is a stunning racing game that features some of the coolest cycles ever seen on a console. No other motorcycle racing game on the PlayStation can match the luscious and amazingly detailed graphics. There's more than enough in this title to engross even the most cynical racing fan. This game is so well designed that it should be considered the Gran Turismo of motorcycle racing games.

TDC was in development at Accolade's San Jose studios, the same studio responsible for Test Drive Off-Road 2 and 3. A new game engine was built from the ground up in order to maximize the power of the PlayStation. The new engine allowed for the highest degree of graphical detail ever seen on a motorcycle racing game for the PlayStation. According to some sources within the studio, a major setback occurred when the lead programmer left the team. Coupled with Infogrames' desire to close the studio, TDC was forever cancelled.
