Criterion: Support Need For Speed: Most Wanted And DLC Could Happen

"It's as simple as that"
At the weekend we reported on the rather depressing news that the Wii U version of Need for Speed: Most Wanted may be missing out on DLC support. Unsurprisingly, that caused quite a bit of ill-feeling, with many Nintendo fans taking to Twitter to voice their concern to Criterion's staff.
One staff member who has been getting his fair share of pleading tweets is Criterion's Creative Director Alex Ward. He was asked on the popular social networking site about the chances of DLC:
@mariobros27772 Only one way to solve this. Support the game. If the sales are there it makes sense to do the DLC. Simple as that.— Alex Ward (@AlexanderJWard) March 17, 2013
So there you have it — support the game and there's a chance that DLC will make it to the Wii U. Makes sense, really; there's little point in EA and Criterion spending time (and consequently money) on porting the DLC over if the game hasn't sold well enough in the first place.
