After the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable versions released, fans were waiting for a new ModNation Racers game to be released.

Eventually, a PlayStation Vita version of ModNation Racers was announced. (this is the actual name of the game at the time.)

Sony Computer Entertainment San Diego Studio (the developer of the game) asked for fans to name the game differently, as there were already two games of the same name. Eventually, the poll closed and the game was revealed to be actually named ModNation Racers: Road Trip.

Later, San Diego Studio announced there is no online multiplayer in ModNation Racers: Road Trip (which is strange because the PS3 version and even ModNation Racers for the PlayStation Portable has the feature, and the PlayStation Vita was touted as an online device). This announcement of missing online multiplayer annoyed pre-orderers of the game to the point where some wanted the game to be delayed just so it released with that feature, or else they won't buy the game. SDS said this is because ModNation Racers PSP online multiplayer usage went to 4% after only a month, and in response to this outcry, SDS replied that an update to the game which adds online multiplayer functions will be published. However, only a single stability and graphics update was actually released.

SDS announced that ModExplorer, Mod Postcards, Time Trials, and Community Share were in the game. They also said that four-player Ad-hog multiplayer was included with the game. This failed to stop the outrage, as people were still complaining about lack of online multiplayer features at release date. This continued to the release date of the game itself, causing most players who otherwise would buy the game to buy Wipeout 2048 instead, some to not accept ModNation Racers: Road Trip even if it was free (showcasing that people won't accept new racing games without online multiplayer), and others even reconsidering purchasing a PlayStation Vita or outright skipping it altogether.
