Criterion Takes Control of Need for Speed Franchise
Remember the gameplay difference between Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and Need for Speed: The Run? Don’t look for that to happen again anytime soon.
Criterion VP Alex Ward told Game Informer that the series will have “strong Criterion involvement” in the future.
“It’s not going to be spread anymore across different companies. Different studios have had a crack at it – it’s definitely a Criterion gig now,” he said.
He also added, when it came to trying to combine Shift, Hot Pursuit and Most Wanted, that it, “would be amazing in the future if there was one big game that had all of these in it. That would be amazing.”
