Criterion’s Craig Sullivan and Alex Ward recently had the opportunity to speak to The Guardian about their past efforts, and what they have planned for the future. Sullivan told the publication that Criterion will make another Burnout game, but he wouldn’t be drawn into specifics. Still, it’s great news, as the Burnout franchise has always been highly regarded by racing enthusiasts.
“We will make another Burnout game at some point. Obviously, as we’re working on NFS we’re thinking of really good ideas that aren’t right for this series; there are ideas that we’re going to explore with Burnout. And we wouldn’t be making NFS or Burnout games if we didn’t think the driving genre had a long shelf life and that we could push the boundaries. There’s a lot of new stuff in Most Wanted, a lot for people to get their heads around – and sometimes there’s only so much explaining you can do – we’ve reined in some of the ideas we had for this game, they were a little ahead of their time.”
