Criterion Readying "Unannounced Racing Title" for Release this Year
Written Friday, April 05, 2013 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
Criterion Games is working on an "unannounced racing title" set for release this year.
That’s according to the LinkedIn profile of Need For Speed: Most Wanted’s lead cinematic artist for marketing. The as-yet unannounced racer is listed alongside the words, "EA Games 2013."
Seemingly confirming the news is a second Criterion employee's LinkedIn profile too, though the identity of the game is not known.
So what is it? Criterion has already said that a sequel to Burnout Paradise is “highly unlikely,” while it’s possible that the game could be a new Need for Speed. Vice President Alex Ward said recently that future games in the series will have “a strong Criterion involvement.”
Whatever it is, don’t expect EA to be pushed into an announcement. In the meantime, we’ll blindly, wildly speculate. It’s definitely going to be a next-gen Road Rash.
