Criterion is gearing up to reveal "something amazing", according to comments made by veteran producer Pete Lake.
Sounds great if so.
Yeah it does, I just hope this reveal really is a new Burnout game and not an update on that extreme sports game they showed a year or two back which looked pretty bad. We've had too many racing games focusing on realism for years now, it's about time Burnout made a return and reminded us all how fun racing games can be.
agree, but most of those realism racing games still have many issues, each theyre own.. so there is always room for one more.. :D but yes, burnout has to be fun, with open world and great destruction! ;)
Agreed, Burnout is always a breath of fresh air from the realistic type. Would be nice to have another one. I still have a bit of a bitterness toward Criterion though, with their poor take on the latest Need for Speed Most Wanted game. It wasn't anything like the original Most Wanted. No vehicle customization, no currency system to buy cars, parts, aesthetics etc. The police chases weren't as intense, and getting busted held absolutely no consequences (losing money, having your car impounded). There was no story line or narrative. Also the lack of manual shifting and only 2 optional views (behind the car, in front of the bumper) As long as they stay away from the Most Wanted Series, I'm happy.
Oh GOD,please,please bring Burnout back or at least give me Burnout Revenge remastered.... I personally just want to go online and smash people off the road just like I used to do in burnout [email protected] I miss those time's on my PS2 (specifically Burnout Revenge)!!!!!
And I thought Burnout Paradise BC is the big news. Maybe a new Burnout is in development. Can't wait
Did Criterion mention if Burnout Revenge was being considered for Xbox backwards compatibility as well? I am seriously considering buying an Xbox One if I can check out the exclusives and have access to Burnout Paradise, Burnout Revenge, Gears of War 3 etc. I could buy Burnout Paradise for PC right now since it's only £5 on Steam, but Criterion only released the 'Ultimate Box' edition of the game, so the DLC that came after that isn't available and never actually came to PC. Normally I wouldn't really care but the Big Surf Island DLC was amazing and it's not on PC :(
I wouldn't mind a cheap remastered Revenge at 1080/60...
I'm on board.
Burnout 4 and/ or Black 2 please.
I would want Black 2 before Burnout.
I'm torn between which one I'd want. Black is probably one of the best looking games on ps2 but burnout is alot more fun and especially with next generation graphics and damage models...nevermind burnout haha
LOL at the disagrees for something I would want. I also want a custom chopper and more money.
It's disagrees because people disagree. They'd rather have Burnout first, or maybe even neither. Geez.
:/ I prefer BLACK sequel as well. It was the best of its era for PS2/Xbx Generation for SP only destructible game. Although the creators of Burnout have left Criterion and have started a new studio. So anything EA makes will be from the remains of the team or with EA's intent only in mind. Could be hit or big miss. I believe Black is the game that inspired the birth of Bad Company in a way with its destructible elements. Another idea would be if Criterion developed Bad Company 3. Considering Visceral is tied up with Star Wars. DICE has Battlefront, and Mirror's Edge on its plate. Maybe? Although we can't forget EA did state their extreme racing game was in development at Criterion. I am thinking its a new Burnout or a new IP inspired by Burnout beyond just cars and stuff... I look forward to the new studio guy's that created Burnout's first project as well.
For the love of Pete, just don't make it always-online like the new NFS, PLEASE! Burnout 3 is 1 of my all time fave games, and Revenge & Paradise I hold in high regard also, so please don't ruin this franchise too :(
Burnout Revenge 2!!!
Yes, Yes, we need to start petition or something because EA (as usual) essentially canned burnout for NFS franchise just like they did to the Bad Company franchise.
I would love a new Burnout, maybe like a sequel to Paradise, that would be awesome
Remember Burnout 3? They should just do that, but with better controls. It would be like Hot Pursuit 2010, but more violent and with a so bad it's good 90s DJ who never shuts up.
Paradise 2 would be epic. But i think that ship has sailed. Make burnout 4.
If it is like Burnout 3...day one for me. I really missed slipt screen wand didn't really enjoy the open world of Paradise nearly as much :/
We need a new Burnout no doubt!
hated burnout paradise, loved burnout 2
If they make another Burnout, I hope the tracks are solid this time (which was my biggest gripe with Paradise) but the game could still have an open world hub. Actually, they could combine all the best games into one, 3 + some modes that have trafik chekking ala Revenge then throw in a open world hub (in which online players could set their own tracks if they wish but specificly designed race tracks should be the main meat) By the way, why is no one talking about Dominator, is it that bad? I havent played Dominator but I wonder why people never mention it?
Really enjoyed Split/second but can't wait for Burnout Paradise on Xbox One via BC
I thought that studio was closed....I guess its been so long since they did anything.
What made Burnout so great was 40 percent due to the alternative rock era music but today's music is all house and crap so it might turn ugly fast
It's not burnout. It's the extreme action sports game they showed off at e3 last year.
I'd love a new burnout, but if it's gonna be like paradise, don't bother. Can't take that much disappointment again! (it was a good game, it was just an awful burnout game!)
While Paradise was a great game, I agree with you that it really wasn't a great Burnout game. Burnout 3: Takedown is the best Burnout game, and Revenge is a close second.
My fiance worked with some staff at Criterion games recently on a brief animation project. It involved rigging and animating ATVs and their riders. Not sure if this has anything to do with their upcoming game, but it seems quite possible! She said they also showed a trailer for the title which looked like a more polished version of the 'extreme sports' prototype they showed at E3 2014.
I really doubt it's Burnout. I think it's going to be their new 'extreme sports' IP that they showcased at last year's E3.
I'm hoping it's like Burnout 3. Hopefully games like Driveclub have shown them that we dont need everything open world. I really enjoyed split screen with my gf now wife back on the PS2.
As great as a new burnout would be I would really like to see a direct sequel to the game Black. When that game came out I was blown away by the destructible environments, impossible missions/situations and sound design. If criterion could make a sequel with multiplayer/co-op up to current gen standards of graphics, scale, sound and fidelity it could be amazing
Take me down to the paradise city.... Paradise 2, one can dream.
why not a split second instead
Pretty sure Disney owns that IP.
Could be the Beta version of that prototype they showed a couple E3s ago.
my most played game was burnout paradise and from a person who wasn't into car video games. I wish they are making burnout paradise.
A great series and always welcome.
Take me down to the paradise city Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty!
Was a big fan older games but thought paradise was way overrated I just want to do so epic intersection smash carnage.
Criterion should return to Burnout and leave NFS to someone else
