Alex Ward, a leading man at Burnout creator Criterion Games, has hinted at the possibility of a second Burnout Paradise through his personal Twitter account.
oh shit, that would be a next generation title that would shoot up to number one on my most anticipated list!
Im with you! Paradise is arguably this generations best arcade racer and it came out what, 6 years ago? Criterion is a fantastic studio! Bring it!
Agreed. A second title would have to improve on a bit of the repetitiveness of the first game but even from that very foundation, I'd still play the freaking hell out of it.
Isn't NFS most wanted the NEW Burn out? There really isn't much difference between the two, I own both games , although I prefer burn out by far.
Calm yourselves folks. It's published by EA, meaning they will somehow shove some unnecessary feature that will just make you want to put the game down and just go back and play the original Burnout Paradise.
Criterion have been owned by EA for ten years. Didn't affect Burnout 3 or Paradise!
I don't need to see this until next gen. Burnout Paradise was a beautiful game, and I'd like to see the graphics evolve as well as the game itself.
now if only CRITERION would take burnout engine out of their NEED FOR SPEED it would be 2 hits!! instead of same game with different titles. @ zechs34 criterion has made recent BURNOUT did you not buy HOTPURSUIT AN MOSTWANTED?? there you are burnout paradise 2 an 3 surely was not "NEED FOR SPEED" BY a looooooooong shot.
Would anybody else also want to see a new Midnight Club game? And my brother would go ape$#!t to hear about this game. He put so much time in paradise city.
Great game, great atmosphere, great soundtrack, I'm really looking forward to Burnout Paradise 2!
i hope this time its with real licensed cars, i loved BO but not having original cars kind of took something off
Having real cars means paying for licenses and it means you can't damage the cars to the extent Burnout Paradise provided. So no, no real cars please!
if they do i hope they get rid of that open world bullcrap. NFS MW (2012) was just...bad.
Same here. Been playing BO since the 1st came out on the GameCube, but I just hated the open world of BO Paradise. I don't want to concentrate on making sure I don't take a wrong turn to take me on wild cross country drive in the opposite direction, I want to concentrate on the race itself and driving as bat ass crazy as possible. It took a lot of the fun away for me and I couldn't be asked playing it anymore. It lacked local multiplayer and there was no party crash mode. BO 2 had the best courses for racing and drifting and BO Takedown had the best additions before they went a bit too far. In case it is open world again, I just hope they allow us to restart the race at any point and they have a GPS to make sure those of us who like to concentrate on racing can do so without worrying about directions.
Need for speed most wanted pretty much = burnout paradise 2, and its awesome.
Burnout3:takedown for me is probably the greatest racing game ive ever played! with amazing soundtracks! i hope they make a burnout:takedown2 one day, no open world shit.
I personally think Burnout Paradise 2 and the Burnout franchise should be Criterion's top focus. This is their creation and their baby. I also hope they find a unique identity with the Need for Speed franchise at the same time.
I hope the actual racing is not open world but the hub stays can keep the open world, just disliked how you have to keep checking the map to know where your driving which is especially difficult in a game where your driving really fast.
Yeah NFS which was supposed to be BP2 was an epic fail we want a real BP2!
now that CRITERION GAMES making BURNOUT PARADISE 2 maybe they give EA the tool kit for need for speed back. a serious developer will take fans desire for a GOOD need for speed into consideration now. Hotpursuit was craptastic failure, Mostwanted was seriously BURNOUT indisguised. for me it was the auto-log fiasco, could not progress the game unless your online that killed it for me got refunded. HOTPURSUIT 2,UNDERGROUND still the best.
Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yeeeess! I love Criterion <3
oh hell yes. playing NFS: Most Wanted only increased my need for another burnout.
Came here just to say the same. Might have rather had this.
man really :) burnout kicks ass. its a trip we havent seen a follow up in years. game just needs to be around forever ya know.
If it runs half as crappy as NFSMW on pc, I'll be avoiding. The first time I ever got a refund for a digital game.
Do you not have the specs to run it? Bad drivers? I have it and it works great. I have it maxed out at 60-70fps on a GTX 660ti. Have had 0 problems.
You had no issues with performance on a $300 Nvidia card? Wowie, tell us more.
I have a 2gb radeon 7870. quad core amd @4ghz. 4ghz ram. Shouldn't be a problem. Runs everything else great. Battlefield 3 at the highest settings at a solid 60fps. It's bad programming. It will dip from 60 to 20fps just because you take a turn. Consider yourself lucky.
@silentnegotiator. I have a 3 year old gts450...you can get it for...80 bucks? It runs it on all high settings, 60 fps, prettier than console version.
wow. 3 disagrees with facts. facts. you disagree that i can run this game with a gts 450? and you disagree that the graphics are turned up to a higher quality than the console versions? this place is not for gamers, its for rabid fanboys who ignore facts
@dirthurts mate i have a xfx hd 7870. runs good. sometimes the framerate will drop to 30 when your around the cities but most of the time its a solid 60
Guess its time to get rid of the old windows 95 packerd bell.
I'm still amazed by the crash mechanics in Paradise. like your car would always deform in a unique manner depending on the impact. what a game. can't wait for this sequel, which will have to be shared between current gen and next gen it seems.
My friends and I used to have contests to see who could F**k up our car the worst... Such great times.
Used to love the burnout series till the open world crap
I didn't really like Burnout Paradise, I liked Burnout 3 more.
ive always liked racing games. burnout 3 is my all time favorite
3 was definitely awesome, but come on, even through the repetition, driving around through Paradise City was some of my most memorable moments of gaming this generation. Back then, those graphic were just downright beautiful; Hell, they still are even today.
Liking 3 more than Paradise? Okay. Not liking Paradise? "Unacceptablllllllllllle !" (I hope someone with an Adventure Time avatar will appreciate the reference)
Dam Burnout Paradise was my most played racing game on PC. Oh the joy
Open world again? no thanks. It feels like its one big track that gets old -rather than 20+ unique tracks that dont get old
You know what happens when you add all of those 20 tracks together? It becomes open world.
No thanks, sequel to Burnout Takedown please. Hate the open world stuff.
Burnout 3 Takedown RULES!!! I would even be happy with a remaster for the PS3. And you are right, Open world racing was a drag after a while, I want to focus on all the cool burnout stuff rather than looking for the right turn to get to my destination. I miss the music while racing, the crash junctions and blowing up my car multiple times. One more thing, Is your avatar Tom Hanks in the Green Mile sweating and in pain from his prostate cancer??
Lol. Yeah it is!!! That is a great movie. " I took it back "
Better be next gen.
I want a sequel Burnout Revenge!!!! my favorite ps2 racing game! so much fun.
Make this next gen and you got a release spectalular.
the PC version of burnout paradise was wonderfully optimized, i remember maxing it out with a Pentium D 3GHz, 2 GB of RAM and a 9600GSO. BP2 will be day 1 purchase for me , especially on PC and PSVita!
new gen i hope burnout was the on car i pick up this gen & 1st platinum trophy
Yes! Thank you! BoP was one of my favorites.
Nice, maybe give DJ Atomika a female co-host to play off of.
I always like burnout I just never got into NFS series but most wanted demo was good, mainly cause it had police chases.
I absolutely loved Burnout: Paradise. However, it took me a few rounds to actually get into it. After awhile, it's the most repetitious racer out there. :/ Make a more unique map, give it a better Takedown mode (Like Burnout 3), and add full steering wheel support...and I'm in. It's a great game, but MAN did it get boring quickly. I honestly don't even want the racing competitions. I don't want to "rise through the ranks", once again. How many times can the racing genre do that crap in a story? We all saw The Fast and the Furious when it came out. We get it. Can we move on, yet? The Fast series certainly has.
Bring back crash mode !
CRASH MODE...........the best!!!!
I hope its a launch title for next gen consoles.
About time! Love BP.
God this is not real!!! one of the most spectacular games ever!!!
Make it like Burnout:Revenge on 360 for Christ's Sake......
GIVE US ROCKET LAUNCHERS
Have it set in an environment like Motorstorm: Apocalypse
Burnout Paradise sucks. They should make a sequel to Burnout Revenge instead.
Hopefully it'll actually include a crash mode this time -_-
Oh hell yes!!!
PLEASE MAKE IT! BP was one of the very few games where i completed everything in it! I was so pissed when i heard that EA was going to make Criterion make NFS... As long as you make a city as fun and diverse as the first game, with the same amount of challenges and FREE DLC, BP2 would be as great as the first.
