Need for Speed Most Wanted: A Criterion game. One of the reboots Criterion has done for the NFS franchise.
EGM is reporting on a rumor that Criterion is developing a Need For Speed Underground reboot which will be set in a newly refreshed/rebooted Bayview. Sources sent EGM a logo which purportedly will be part of the games' box art. Also adding to the intrigue are the LinkedIn profiles of several Criterion employees who list an unannounced EA title in their profiles.
But all good rumors must come with a denial, which the creative director Alex Ward at Criterion certainly seems to have done. However, we do know something new is coming from Criterion and it is most certainly a racer. At the present time, it is expected Ghost Games is developing this year's Need for Speed which will run on the Frostbite 3 engine.
What do you guys think Criterion is working on?
