But it is a ‘nice idea,’ says the developer.
If, like me, you have any appreciation for racing games, then you know that the best racing game of all time is probably Criterion’s Burnout 3: Takedown, released for the PS2 and Xbox over a decade ago. Takedown was followed up by two excellent sequels – Revenge and Paradise – and then the series was cancelled, leaving fans depressed at how things work in this world.
Said fans may have maybe been holding on to hope that maybe they would get to relive the glory of Burnout in gorgeous 1080p, via a remaster or something. Said fans have been let down yet again- Criterion has shot down the idea, stating that it is probably not going to happen.
“Hah! You’re not the first with that one. Nice idea but it’s still not true. We’ve moved on to newer, even better things,” the studio said, in response to a question about a Burnout HD Collection by a fan on Twitter. A Burnout 3 re-release on current generation is equally unlikely.
Criterion, I love you, so believe me, I don’t mean this in a mean way, but… you suck, and nothing you do will ever be as good as Burnout 3 was, ever.
