Criterion working on Need For Speed game

EA chief operating officer John Pleasants confirmed Criterion has been assigned to an unannounced Need For Speed game.

“We’ve taken the Burnout team and combined it with our Need For Speed franchise,” he said, speaking on EA’s efforts to reboot the lagging racing franchise. “So we now have that in our favor because that Burnout team is probably one of the more online-centric and notably high-quality game developers that we have out at Criterion.”

I didn’t hear any other details on the game during the webcast, but confirmation that Criterion is taking a crack at Need For Speed is enough. Sounds like win to me.
