|No burnout? wtf! It's one of few racing games that I actually like because love the game because it doesn't force myself to be too serious with the driving. |

|No new Burnout makes me sad. |
Criterion not making Racers is like Epic making a Farming Simulator. Or Creative Assembly making a sports game. Or EA Sports making a RTS....

|Please make BLACK 2. The first BLACK was amazing and Bodycount wasn't really a good successor to it. We need a proper BLACK 2. C'mon Criterion. You know you want to. |

|About time we saw some innovation, instead of just recycling the old products over and over again. |
I, for one, applaud this decision, even if it should have been done a long time ago.

And that would be good.
Studios and ppl like that need to get out of their comfort zone. That would challenge them and the gaming industry.Could create new unexpected things.
Fresh blood in stall gender.
Reason why so many games are alike and to a point boring, is because they're always done by the same ppl. Mix it all, that will spark creativity!
Well that my way of seeing it anyway.

|New stuff is nice and all, but so help us all if it turns out to be just another shooter. Excluding Black 2, of course, though I do fear it'll be one of those "won't live up to its expectations" like other recent games. |

|@6 @7 Innovation and fresh beginning are over rated |
Imagine you were an incredible painter in real life. You could paint the most incredible portraits and people talked about your work for years. You tried painting vistas and scenic views, and found they were decent, not great.
Is the logical step to never paint portraits again and instead try sculpting ice? Not really
Also....worse analogy in the world. Sorry about that

|When i read EA making new material i automatically think. how much is this REALLY going to cost me. |
£40 for the game.
80Microspoft points per game update.
70Microsoft points to un pause the game.
Maybe they will put petrol in the racing game cars and ever 5 miles u have to use micro transactions to fill it back up when your petrol goes

yeah that was literally the worst analogy ever made. Mostly because it doesn't compare. At all.
Innovation in games is a good thing. Look at the shit like NFL/NBA/Fifa etc. It is basically the same product released on a yearly schedule. Pretty much the same goes for games like Call of Duty. Very few changes, makes for boring sequels, and ultimately very poor gameplay.
I know the games I mentioned are popular products, but I, as a gamer, refuse to partake in buying shit like that. I want innovation. Hell, I'd even settle for those new beginnings you mentioned, because I'm frankly tired of just seeing the market flooded with yearly releases of the same product and/or franchise.
Now don't get me wrong, sequels isn't a bad thing if the game was good. But that is not what I'm talking about here.
I understand that not everyone want the same as me, but all we can do is vote with our wallets (and I do), and see what happens down the line.

|A new way of making race games from EA? Buy the game brand new with only the first gear available. So you have to buy DLCs to get other gears to be able to win the race! |

|As excited as I am to see them do something totally new, I kind of wish they had gone out on a better racing game than Most Wanted. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but nowhere near their best. |

|I don't understand how the majority of you are being so pessimistic about this. I would rather a developer go out, try something new and FAIL, than keep making the same thing over and over. If they fail, they learn, meaning better titles in the future. |
But, i guess most people now-a-days think they're too entitled to their games. Yes, I do believe that some games, gamers should have a (short) say in what they would like to see in it, but sometimes, it's better for us to stay out of a developer's way and speak with money than voices. Some times, people need to learn the hard way.
I fear for next gen because the way the industry is, and because of the mindset gamers have any more. Might be better off going to PC soon.

These guys are the only ones who can match the legendary SEGA racing greats IMO.
Especially NFS;HP & NFS; MW2012... they really are amazing, fun games.
I thank all involved in bringing us these fantastic games & wish them well with all future projects. Just remember; your loyal fans will eagerly wait years for your next racing game:)!

|That's excellent news! Burnout was always over rated. Road Rash sucks. And even though they did a great job on their version of Hot Pursuit in 2010, they completely ruined Need for Speed Most Wanted, making one of the worse NFS games ever. But now we know what will happen to them, the big bosses at EA will put them to work on some new FPS, they'll fail miserably, and go out of business. Goodbye Criterion! |

|It's a shame, Criterion were pretty much the last remaining quality racer maker (now that Bizarre and Pygnosis have gone) but it seems there is no glory in making these games anymore. |
Unfortunately this has probably come from EA, who are just a money making machine and I guess partly from the community wanting all things FPS.
Sad day for racing fans. Hope Criterion fight back with something that isn't an FPS and don't end up defunct like the others.
