Criterion Hints At New Racer For 2010?
It remains one of the best racers of the generation and ever since its launch, Criterion Games has supported Burnout Paradise with a ton of additional downloadable content.
But perhaps it's time to move on. This developer is certainly capable of making an intense, adrenaline-pumping new racer, and maybe we should start looking for evidence of such a project in early 2010. We haven't heard anything about a new title from Criterion but their latest Twitter update may indicate the existence of a new IP. Either that, or they're preparing the next Burnout entry, which wouldn't be quite as intriguing but a good deal safer (established franchises are always safer from a business standpoint). If you don't feel like clicking through, here's the tweet:
"2010 will satisfy our increasing desire for travelling at a rate of high velocity....or words to that effect..."
Of course, that could mean just about anything, including more DLC for Paradise. But we'd like to think it's time to start hearing about something new; a project that just might rival their past efforts in terms of mind-bending speed and over-the-top crashes. If you haven't had the pleasure of racing through the streets of Paradise City, you can always log on to the PSN and grab the entire game for only $29.99. And the sheer amount of add-on content available has really allowed this title to become a sequel in and of itself, kinda like what Media Molecule has done in expanding LittleBigPlanet. But still, a new racer from Criterion would be sweet, right?
