PlayStation Access, a show owned by PlayStation that talks about upcoming and ongoing games on Sony’s platforms, may have revealed Ridge Racer 2 is coming to PlayStation Plus Premium in a new video before promptly hiding it from the public.
The since-hidden video said Ridge Racer 2 would be joining the subscription service in October. This is specifically the PlayStation Portable version that launched in 2006, not the 1994 original that was playable in arcades.
The video was made private, but not before the Ridge Racer 2 news started circulating online.

Ridge Racer 2 did appear in previous PlayStation Blog posts about games coming to PlayStation Plus Premium, but the racing game was never actually added to the service’s catalog. At this point, it’s unclear if PlayStation Access accidentally announced an early reveal, or if it was a mistake and the racing game isn’t coming to PlayStation Plus Premium.
Sony started rolling out new PlayStation Plus tiers back in June, with the Premium subscription allowing users to download and stream a large library of games on their PlayStation system as long as they’re subscribed. While Ridge Racer 2 is not yet on the platform, there are still plenty of great games available on the service. For more on that, check out IGN’s database for the full catalog.
