Need for Speed and Burnout studio, Criterion Games, is working on a non-racing title

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

British developer Criterion has made its name with racing games, what with its Burnout titles and highly-praised spins on the Need for Speed franchise that it has churned out over the last several years. So it may surprise longtime fans to hear that Criterion’s next game won’t be a racer at all.

“After over a decade of making racing games it's time to make something new,” Alex Ward, the studio’s creative director and VP, tweeted to fans. “It is early days thus I have nothing to ‘announce’ or talk about.” In subsequent tweets, Ward further revealed that he isn’t currently at work on any new Burnout or Need for Speed games.

However, he was quick to assure fans that the studio isn’t finished with the genre. “I am proud of all of the Burnout games. When it feels right we will make another one. We are creative people.” 

As for what Criterion’s next, non-racing title will be, Ward didn’t specify beyond saying that it won’t be a sequel to the developer’s 2006 shooter Black (tough luck for fans of that game).  Until the developer throws us more of a bone, we can only speculate on what Criterion could be working on at this moment.
