Criterion's Creative Director - "I'm not developing any new racing games in the immediate future"

After a decade of creating racing games, Alexander J. Ward, Creative Director of Criterion Games, the EA-owned studio that recently released reboots of two retro Need for Speed games - "Most Wanted" and "Hot Pursuit", now seems to want a take a break from the racing genre. (Criterion Games, EA, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

"Spiritual sequel to BLACK, maybe please???"

Do we really need yet another FPS?

...I would much prefer a good old fashioned action adventure or sandbox type game thank you!

Yeah fine an FPS sandbox type game, I want that too. I really dig FPS'when they're good

I think if Criterion actually made effort to make an FPS with not only a memorable cast and story (Continue using campy live action cut scenes.) but with great A.I and soundtrack that rivals the previous installment (Bring back Chris Tilton and Michael Giacchino, no more wub wub), it would already put it shoulders above the rest.

Of course destruction and realistic models should also return as well seeing that was Black's forte. Nothing wrong with bringing another shooter that tries to standout..........

I think there is an over saturation of FPS on this current gen. Gamers need a change of pace next gen.

Deeper stories, engaging dialogue and believable characters.

I suppose you could get all of that from a shooter, but it would take a 'special' kind of FPS to satisfy the genre, as opposed to another mindless 6-8hr predictable campaign.

Follow the arrow, shoot this guy, blow up that tank....

Yaaaaawn ;)
