“No plans” for more EA NASCAR, says Moore

Thursday, 3rd September 2009 11:26 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Sounds as though any aspiration EA may have had to make more NASCAR games has gone south.

“There are no plans right now for NASCAR from EA,” EA Sports boss Peter Moore told Gamespot.

“We had a great relationship over the years that I thoroughly enjoyed when I first got here. Unfortunately…we had to make some tough trade-offs.

“We’ve had to redeploy some of those folks. A number of the NASCAR team has moved over now to EA Sports MMA, which will be shipping next year. [We're] still a huge fan of NASCAR, but no plans right now to develop any further games for NASCAR from EA Sports.”

Moore’s comments represent a shift in position from April this year, when he told VG247 that “NASCAR and ourselves are in negotiations about where we go from here.”

Clearly not any more.

    Well thank f*ck for that, they were diabolical.

    And hasn’t GT5 got NASCAR races now? Don’t know if it’s an exclusive licence.

    So GT5 will be the only Nascar game on consoles?

    That’s what I was going to say – it’s not going to be coincidental is it?

    If I am not mistaken EA lost the rights to nascar. It is because nascar found out that EA was not making quaility racing car games. I read that some where can’t find the link. There was also the fact they have not made any qauility nascar pc game too. I think the owner for nascar is a pc gamer.

    Wow… Well, I’d be more impressed if F1 license had been lost and was in GT5, but nevermind!
