Criterion “would be a great team to work with” on Need for Speed

Need for Speed: Shift producer Jesse Abney would like to work with Criterion on Need for Speed projects.

“You know, Criterion’s got a great heritage in racing games, and I think they would be a great team to work with on that stuff, certainly from a personal opinion,” he said, talking in London last week.

“There’s always question about how does Burnout exist, and vice versa. We’ll be hoping for the best in the future.”

Criterion, as you’re all well aware, has been beavering away on Burnout Paradise DLC for the past year. Future projects are unannounced.

Need for Speed: Shift releases for PC, PS3, 360 and PSP this autumn.

    Yeah I’d like to see more from Criterion. I mean fair play to them, their support for Burnout has been exemplary, but for such a talented team, I do hope they’ve got a new project in the works too.

    “Criterion “would be a great team to work with” on Need for Speed”…If they weren’t already entrenched updating Road Rash, for EA? Please? Maybe?

    I thought it was generally accepted that Criterion’s current ‘secret’ project was another NFS to go with the other two (at least) currently in development by other dev houses.

    I must have dreamt it ;)
