Criterion Games’ Alex Ward Moving On From Racing Titles

criterion gamesCriterion games’ boss Alex Ward took to Twitter earlier and announced that he would be moving on from racing titles and said, ‘it’s time to make something new.’ After the rumour of a new ‘unannounced racing title’ spread like wild-fire to be quashed later by Ward himself, it appears there’s no longer room for another racing title in Criterion Games’ repertoire for the moment.

In a string of tweets, Ward said: “Here is what I want folks to know. Some folks are eternally disappointed. Nothing I can do about that. So many tweets asking for new Burnout [and] equally many tweets asking for a new NFS game from us. Also Road Rash. Whilst I love all of those games, I am personally not doing any.

“After over a decade of making racing games it’s time to make something new. It is early days thus I have nothing to “announce” or talk about. I am proud of all of the Burnout games. When it feels right we will make another one. We are creative people.”

        1. I’m sorry but Criterion said themselves all future Need for speed games will be released on the same date as other platforms. AKA suck a dick.

          1. Nintendo said they wouldn’t have the same drought on the Wii U as the 3DS. Did that happen? NOPE. People say things. AKA fuck yourself.

              1. I can’t believe what I’m seeing here. Is Walter really that mental? he sickens me to think he’s my only son. What a disgrace to my family honor.

                P.S. ignore him M. He’s got too much on his mind after he lost so much during his lifetime, yet he comes to me for help.

  1. I say Follow your Dreams!!!
    As long as its not another Generic Military FPS, I don’t care what you do!

  2. Hopefully we see another Burnout game in the near future. They are a talented developer so I’d say do whatever you think it’s right.
