Possible New Burnout Game? Criterion Dev Says “Burnout isn’t Dead”

Need For Speed Most Wanted released early last month to favorable reviews across all platforms. This game developed by criterion Games left a lot of people wondering what about burnout. A franchise that has made them their bread and butter should not be left out in the cold. At New York Comic Con our very own Antwand “Blackbible” Pearman got the chance to interview and ask a few of the burning questions that fans of Need For Speed would want to know. (Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I want an HD remake of Black or another Black game. Burnout is another game, that.I would love for them to go back to the drawing board for. More like revenge, but in the Paradise world. Bring back the crash mode.

Burnout 3 is still the most enjoyable racing game I've ever played. Paradise was too overwhelming IMO. To even stand a chance at winning those online races you had to know the city like the back of your hand. Those sudden turns we're brutal!

If theres another Burnout, I prefer it not to be open world.
most wanted kinda felt like a more refined (less overwhelming) burnout paradise. If they did make a paradise 2 I'm sure they'll carry over what they did in most wanted. The problems is that a paradise 2 would feel like a more refined most wanted lol. I'd like a burnout 3 type game.

I'm kinda shocked that you didn't like the open would aspect of paradise. It was awesome too me. It does take a while to get use too but when you do it's great.

Funny when ypou hear someone basically say "The Games TOO Big."

^^I don't mind when games are big as long as the extra space has meaning. San Andreas for example had a huge open world, but more than a third of that world was useless forest/desert space. And many of the side missions were stupid. Why the hell would I want to go to flight school? Its a videogame, not real life.

Although Batman: Arkham City has a smaller world than San Andreas, every iota of that world is fully detailed with tons of baddies to fight, involving side missions to do, and Riddler trophies to collect. Hence I had more fun with Batman: AC than any other open world game I've ever played.

I'd take detail over space any day of the week.

Id honestly be fine with an open world Burnout or a PS2-type new Burnout.

They were all so good i dont even care what they do as long as they keep the quality level as high as they have with past games

Burnout Paradise was, and remains, my favourite racer of this gen by a landslide.

I know some arcade racers had better aspects, and it can't touch GT5/Forza in terms of a Sim.

But it does what it does perfectly. The entire package had me going back time and time again, i easily lost a couple of hundred hours of my life online in this game.

If you make a new Burnout then SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

Edit: i still have dozens of "mugshots" from online where it takes a pic of your reaction when taken out with the PS Eye. The amount of times you would find a guy with an Eye and pound each other to death just to make silly faces to each other had me in tears of laughter for hours. Burnout FTW.

Thanks to EA, Criterion has lost their way, and can't innovate anymore. You can't tell the difference between the NFS and Burnout games now, and they've already run out of ideas, so they're only doing rehashes. I expect their first next-gen game to be titled 'Need for Hot Pursuit in Paradise'.
Probably saving it for next gen. They also need to bring back Black.

please don't do open world this time. One of the best things about older burnouts was that you could jump right from the menu into action.

Plus the indicator turns was the worst thing everr, i wanna know where i need to turn BEFORE it comes up so i can prepare for a drift angle. One wrong turn in Paradise and you had to restart the whole race.
