Criterion Studios boss Alex Ward has said that they have stopped making racers entirely. He revealed that in a series of tweets, but VG247 has rounded them up nicely.

Earlier a Need for Speed: Underground logo surfaced which was proven to be fake, however that didn’t stop fans from bugging Ward on Twitter.

“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. Equally many tweets asking for a new NFS game from us. Also Road Rash,” he said.

“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.

A new next-gen Burnout game would be amazing and hopefully EA hires Criterion to do the work.
