Criterion Has No Immediate Plans For More Need For Speed
Posted by Lee Meyer
Criterion Games' Creative Director Alex Ward has taken to Twitter to debunk recent rumors about a Need For Speed reboot. In a series of tweets, Ward explained that Criterion wanted to take a break from the Need For Speed series, and racing games in general.
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— Alex Ward (@AlexanderJWard) April 15, 2013
Ward did, however, leave the door open for future developments:
I am proud of all of the Burnout games. When it feels right we will make another one. We are creative people.— Alex Ward (@AlexanderJWard) April 15, 2013
Need For Speed: Most Wanted debuted to critical acclaim on the Wii U in March. While the series has been represented on Nintendo consoles before, Criterion gave the Wii U port special treatment, including replacing the 360/PS3 assets with higher-resolution PC textures and incorporating the DLC from other platforms playable from the start.
