Rumour: Update regarding possible end NFS Monday, 15.12.2008
Electronic ArtsWith the last episode of Electric Playground a » rumour is going on, that EA is cutting the Need for Speed series. According to the onlinemagazine Joystiq this might not be entirely true. Instead of shutting down NFS, EA wants to close the EA Black Box Studios in Vancouver, which developed the latest NFS games, and move the development team to the larger studios in Burnaby.

Joystiq's source says, that the next NFS game in the series will be developed by Criterion, the developers of the Burnout series and most likely use their own engine. The three teams from EA Black Box currently developing NFS will consolidate into one drastically downsized team, leading into less NFS releases with more continuity.

There is no official confirmation from EA yet, but we might can expect more information this week.
