Need for Speed hits a roadblock, Factor 5 cutting staff and a Home invasion as we head into the holiday home stretch.
Home already hacked? Wow
Rumour Very Unlikely
People are doing stuff client side with a proxy. Nothing special and its getting blown way out of proportion.
NFS under Criterion would be mental. =)
Whatever happened to that Rogue Squadron compilation Factor 5 was putting together? That'd probably sell enough copies to save the entire company...
I was never a fan of anything Factor 5 ever did.
Oh well I have no pity for Factor 5..Thats what happens when you back the wrong console.
Never cared much for Need for Speed anyway, but I guess this is good news for those who like it.
wait, if EA black box is done... what wILL HAPPEN TO SKATE??!
Skate 2 is due out in January, so chances are it's already near completion, and if EA does cut the studio they won't do so until the game is done. Unfortunately, unless they consolidate the people working on Skate into another development team, that means future Skate games (if there are any) are going to be in new hands.
Could you tell us something new... we already know the Need For Speed Story.
It would seem unwise to totally cancel Need For Speed, it really needs a reboot though.
I hope criterion bring NFS back to its roots where blackbox would not or could not do.
