Ex-Criterion developers teased the new game on Twitter.
While Burnout fans were recently given the rather disappointing news that it doesn’t appear there is going to a remastered collection of the game’s series, it appears they just might have gotten some rather good news this week. Three Fields Studios, made up of a number of former Criterion developers has announced that it’s working on a new racing game which it feels is a spiritual successor to Burnout. The company announced this new game on their official Twitter account. The firm also teased fans of the game series a bit by “asking” which one of the three in the series it should model this new game after.
It appears the company is also beginning work on a second game, though it hasn’t really shed any light on what that game might be. This is really the first hint at what Three Field Studios wants to work on at all. When the Criterion developers joined this team, there was a lot of talk about what direction it could have taken but that was just conjecture until now. We do know that the other game is going to be some kind of multiplayer sports game “with a twist” but beyond that there isn’t really any kind of information.
That game is also expected to be coming out sometime in 2016. That means we should be getting more info about it sooner, rather than later. There wasn’t any kind of window of release for this Burnout spiritual successor so fans who are getting excited will need to wait a little bit.
