Aussie Board Confirms Burnout Crash?
After pumping out Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, maybe it's time for Criterion Games to return to the esteemed Burnout franchise.
And if the Australian Classification Board can be relied upon, the developer is indeed cranking on a new entry. The board reveals EA seems to be preparing a game called "Burnout Crash," a new multiplatform racer that should carry on the name of the well-reviewed, high-octane series. The filing offers no extra details, but it wouldn't be surprising at all to see Criterion back in the Burnout saddle. The most recent installment, Burnout Paradise, remains one of the more popular titles of the generation, and don't forget that you can nab it off the PlayStation Store. We should also mention that Criterion may be the king of downloadable content, as Paradise received more DLC than most gamers knew what to do with. That's a good thing, though.
And besides, Hot Pursuit proved they still have what it takes to produce a polished, entertaining game. Can't wait to hear about the next Burnout.
