During an Interview with Criterion´s VP Alex Ward, he says, Need for Speed is now a "Criterion gig".
Why don't they just do away with Need for Speed since Criterion has been tasked to develop for it. I WISH THEY WOULD MAKE AN UNDERGROUND 3! Why doesn't EA like money!?
As good as Criterion are at racers why have we not seen Black 2 yet
Such an epic game. Its almost impossible to believe it is running that smooth on the ps2 as the game looks stellar and have quite awesome destruction. Im sure if Criterion made BLACK 2 it would sell like hotcakes if they used the best formulas of the original with some slight tweaks to fit to current or next gen and advertised the game properly.
Ahh yes, Black...the first shooter I ever fell in love with :)
Wasn't Bodycount a sequel to Black? I could be wrong though..
Will it have customization...
It has performance customization, but I think their gonna fuck us over with body and pain customization....
No it won't. Performance mods don't count either...
It makes sense, the shift series is pretty much separate from need for speed now, so really the only two studios that are/were making need for speed have been black box and criterion.
Sounds a good news to me. At least Criterion can make a decent game. Black Box has not been able to keep up this generation.The RUN is far from people's anticipation.
I swear that a couple weeks ago a head EA guy said that it is a two team franchise.
Criteron's Most Wanted is Burnout Paradise with cops and licenced cars.
i guess that means goodbye to good wheel support, and goodnight for the franchise to me
Well, they seem to be the only developer in recent memory that can make a good Need For Speed game (Hot Pursuit in 2010) so this makes sense.
I just don't see why EA keep tasking them with NFS titles, I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in saying that a new Burnout title is well overdue, It would probably sell an awful lot more than a NFS title too! I applaude the fact that EA have seen that the franchise needs to be handed to a dedicated studio and who better than Criterion but I just hope EA don't expect them to churn out a title once a year..... I really hope this doesn't mean the end of the Shift franchise either, yeah it has it's faults but I reckon one more title could place it as a serious contender in the sim genre....
