Lead developers from Need for Speed and Burnout studio Criterion have left the company to found a new development studio. Dubbed Fuse Games, the studio is said to be working on a new AAA game, as reported by VideoGamesChronicle.

The studio is being led by Matt Webster—formerly vice president at EA and general manager at Criterion. While Fuse Games hasn’t revealed ore details about its new project, it has described its game as “fusing uncompromising attention to game-feel with blockbuster spectacle and player-centric innovations in social gameplay, self-expression, and creativity.”

Webster is joined by executive producer Pete Lake, Alan McDairmant as the head of studio development, Steve Uphill as the head of content, and Andrei Shires as the senior technical director.

Criterion itself is currently working on content for its most recent release—Need for Speed Unbound. The studio recently announced the VOL 2 update for Need for Speed Unbound, which is slated to hit the game on March 21, bringing with it new challenges and playlists.
