NFS: Most Wanted dev: Getting hands on supercar licenses a “total dream-come-true”

Something tells us this game will be really good.

Posted By | On 05th, Sep. 2012

If you remember Criterion Games used fictional cars for Burnout Paradise because they didn’t have the licenses to do so, when they said to EA for Need for Speed: Most Wanted, everything changed.

Popular brands like Aston Martins Porsche Carreras and Lamborghini Aventadors are now available for Criterion to put in the game and it’s like a dream-come-true for them.

“We get asked this all the time. We have total freedom. We asked to take on Need for Speed, and we did; that was our first game: we did Hot Pursuit. We wanted to do real cars for years, and in Burnout, we had to make the cars up and pretend for a long time. So to finally get our hands on Aston Martins, and Porsche Carreras, and Lamborghini Aventadors, is just a total dream-come-true for us; and to do it our way,” Criterion’s Alex Ward said to AusGamers.

“And then following Hot Pursuit, we were thinking, well we wanted an open-world game, so we just looked back to that Need for Speed canon, and thought “well, we loved that premise of Most Wanted: become the most wanted”. But in 2012, that spoke to us as “become most wanted amongst your friends” right.”

The game comes out this year for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
