In an interview with EGTV’s Johnny Minkley, 2XLs Robb Rinard has revealed that upcoming racer Baja will allow you to hand controls over to the AI if you need to go to the bathroom or make a sandwich.

“Real life intervenes: you’ve got to go to the bathroom, the phone rings,” said the developer.

“In multiplayer you can bring up the in-game menu and hand off your car to an AI driver and he’ll drive your car while you go make a sandwich.”

Without wanting to state the obvious, doesn’t that leave the way open to, you know, cheating?

Baja’s will hit the PS3 and 360 this autumn.
