Hands-on – One last drive with NFS: Hot Pursuit and a chat with EA Games Europe chief Patrick Söderlund
The Need for Speed series was in trouble a year and a half ago. “They were losing quality, repetitive and EA were beating up the franchise and losing consumer interest in the brand,” says Patrick Söderlund, Senior VP of EA Europe.
Something had to change. Let’s face it, racers are a dime a dozen, especially on this generation of consoles, which has spoiled us for choice with titles such as Forza, Project Gotham Racing and Gran Turismo (well eventually, anyways), to name a few. Söderlund knew this, so when he was asked to come in and rescue the series, he and his team decided to stop the cycle of the same team making game after game each year, and instead have several studios working the series, as he felt this “would make the brand successful again.”
Now, after last year’s Shift from Slightly Mad Studios, if you’re going to continue rescuing a failing franchise, asking the studio that developed Burnout Paradise would seem a good start.
