Tom Hopkins writes, "Yesterday, EA announced that development of the Need for Speed series would be moving back to Criterion Games after four iterations with Ghost Games."
EA Black Box would have been best case scenario. But EA...
EA Black Box started to screw up as much as Ghost Games and they had a long downward trajectory spanning from 2006 to 2011: Carbon, ProStreet, Undercover (this is when things really went downhill), The Run.
That could be a cool name for a game. "Need for Speed: Glory Days" ... it could be set in the 50's or 60' with tricked out hot rods and such.
Gotta include the 70s so could have the best of the American muscle car era.
Yeah Criterion is an excellent choice if it isn't riddled with microtransactions and FOMO season passes.
Hate to be the one to say this but... who's left from the Criterion old blood these days?
*Criterion Is the Perfect Studio to Bring Back Burnout There, fixed it for you
I was just about to say the same thing lol. But I don't believe the original minds behind Burnout are at the studio anymore.
Criterion doesn't even exist as people remember it. So I have little to no faith in NFS.
Agreed but then again they are under EA.
Ironically, Criterion is a ghost studio itself. They don't even make Burnout anymore, so I don't see any reason to buy stock in Need for Speed coming back.
Many of the original developers of the old Burnout games, and some of the most liked NFS games have left EA years ago and formed Three Fields Entertainment. They made Danger Driving, an indie Burnout-style game, play that instead of yet another NFS game. https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...
I was really enjoying Heat (despite the bugs) until it lost all my progress last week.
