EA has confirmed that Criterion, developers of the Burnout franchise and 2010’s Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, is developing the next NFS title, Need for Speed: Most Wanted 2, after much speculation.
EA has also announced that they will be revealing more details on the game, along with a live gameplay demonstration, at their E3 conference this week.
Their full E3 2012 lineup is given below:
- Battlefield 3: Close Quarters and Battlefield 3: Armored Kill
- Crysis 3
- FIFA 13
- Madden NFL 13
- Medal of Honor: Warfighter
- NBA Live 13
- NCAA Football 13
- NHL 13
- Star Wars: The Old Republic
- Need for Speed: Most Wanted 2
As you can see, Dead Space 3, which was confirmed earlier, is also listed.
Expect Most Wanted 2 to be announced for a late 2012 release. We’re guessing it’ll be announced for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, PC and the Vita as well, since it was rumoured earlier. Maybe the 3DS too.
Stay tuned for more info.
