Criterion Games Co-Founders Leave

Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry who are the cofounders of Criterion have left the acclaimed studio. Ward said on Twitter that he and Sperry left the studio to ensemble a new video game company. Criterion’s most recent games are Burnout Crash and Need for Speed: Most Wanted. Here’s the statement from EA.

“Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry have decided to leave EA. We appreciate their many contributions through the years and wish them well in their future endeavours.

“The incredibly creative and talented team at Criterion are hard at work on a new project for next-gen consoles as new IP continues to be a major priority across EA. Matt Webster is leading development of the new game and the Criterion studio moving forward. Matt has been part of Criterion for years and has an exciting vision for this new game.”

Thanks, Ahmad

  1. I have to admit, Criterion are a very good video game developer.

    Their latest game for Wii U – that being Most Wanted U was brilliant. The very best to them, and I hope I can play some more of their games!

    1. Just goes to show that there are people that want tor really be able to show off their talent and not do the same games over and over again.

  2. Thanks for the tip but we don’t use data from VG Chartz as it’s not reliable. We used NPD, GFK Chart Track and Media Create. All these are official.
