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

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


Criterion Games is most known for its stellar work on racing games in the Burnout 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 on Twitter, 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 new Burnout 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 the Black series, saying, "No Black2 either folks. Volumes to tell on that topic, but will save that for when I get a book deal..."

What genre would you like to see Criterion tackle now that they're taking a break from racing games? Let us know by commenting below.
