The first game with a working title, Top Gear the Road Trip, is supposed to be launched at the end of 2016. The other two are scheduled for release in 2017.

Well, that's probably one of the reasons they want to do those games, to revive it. And get some money in the process since the Top Gear IP didn't come for free :)

I think it now has a chance with Chris Evans gone.
