Criterion Not Working On New Burnout, Moving Away From Racing Genre

Posted on Tuesday, April 16 @ 10:00:00 PST by Alex_Osborn


Criterion Games is most known for its stellar work on racing games in theBurnout and Need for Speed franchises, but contrary to recent rumors it looks like they're leaving the comfort of the driving genre to take on something entirely new.

Creative director Alex Ward shared the news onTwitter, saying, "After over a decade of making racing games it's time to make something new. It is early days thus I have nothing to "announce" or talk about." However, those still hoping for a newBurnout title sometime down the line from the studio shouldn't freak out just yet."I am proud of all of the Burnout games. When it feels right we will make another one. We are creative people," he added.

Ward also ruled out the possibility of a new entry in theBlackseries, saying,"No Black2 either folks. Volumes to tell on that topic, but will save that for when I get a book deal..."
