“No plans” for more EA NASCAR, says Moore

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.
