Need for Speed: Red Line? Wednesday, 19.05.2010
As » recently reported EA registered a pile of new domain names, of which one of them might be the name of the new Need for Speed game, scheduled for release at the end of 2010.

Criterion Games posted several mysterious cryptic twitter messages, as for example » this tweet:

Red Lining It.... (8:58 AM May 18th via web)

An hint to the name Need for Speed: Red Line? Or just a plain tweet without any real sense or background? The next tweet "All The Way And Making It Pay..." doesn't make things clearer...

What do you think? I guess we'll have to wait for the E3 in mid-June until we get more information.

Thanks to John for the heads up

Possible Names for Criterion's new NFS Tuesday, 18.05.2010
As reported several times, Criterion Games is apparently working on a new Need for Speed title.
Recently the domain registrar "Corporate Service Company" registered a bunch of new domains, which might be a hint to the title of the next Need for Speed:
  • Need for Speed: Boost
  • Need for Speed: Drift Kings
  • Need for Speed: Eliminator
  • Need for Speed: Lightning
  • Need for Speed: No Limits
  • Need for Speed: Overdrive
  • Need for Speed: Proven
  • Need for Speed: Red Line
  • Need for Speed: Showdown
  • Need for Speed: Street Kings
  • Need for Speed: Takedown
  • Need for Speed: The Run
  • Need for Speed: Time Attack
  • Need for Speed: Underground East

Sounds quite interesting...one of these names is possibly the name of the next Need for Speed. What's you opinion?

More information is expected at the E3 in Los Angeles in June. The new Need for Speed title is scheduled for release in autumn 2010.
