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.

Hot pursuit was a great game, I was just disappointed it didn't have split screen.

If they bring back Crash mode, Traffic Attack and split screen multiplayer, I'll be one happy camper.

I enjoyed Burnout Paradise, but I much preferred Burnout Revenge's formula. The different modes, split screen multiplayer, 4 player Crash mode and fighting for that high score (largest amount of costly damage).

Paradise was one step forward and two steps back in my opinion. It still had Time Attacks, races, Road Rage, but Crash mode was replaced with Showtime, and it just didn't seem as much fun to me. Sure, there was now an open world to drive round in, but I preferred Revenge's and Burnout 3's stage based formula. Not EVRYTHING has to be open world, you know!

If Crash brings back the old formula of B3 and Revenge with HD graphics and awesome over the top crashes, I will definitely be placing this on my wishlist.

My first and only platinum was Paradise. My first and only 102% complete was Paradise. I loved the hell out of that game, but now I deleted it from my HDD to make room for the GT5 install file. I'll buy a new HDD soon though.

I sure hope Crash will be just as good if not better. I will definitely buy it then.

Mentioned this over in the Shift2 review :D

And I must say that I'm liking it. I enjoyed Paradise more than the PSP versions, but that isn't to say that I'd be averse to a new Burnout game with that style. For some reason though, I kind of get the feeling that maybe it'll be a downloadable game, rather than a full retail release. It seems plausible given that the first we're hearing about it is from a ratings board.
Peace.

its aparently a PSN/XBLA game.
:(
wish they would give us a full fledged sequel, burnout paradise was the shiz!
still play it from time to time on my PC!
still miffed we had to wait so much longer, and did not get any of the DLC!
great way for saying thanks for the support, and thanks for waiting.
give us your money, now f*ck off your not getting any of the DLC the consoles got!
typical EA!

PC is getting it too, so I doubt it's going to be a PSN/XBLA downloadable game. And currently it's centered around crash mode so sounds like it's going to be what Paradise should've been hopefully. Not that Paradise was anything to sneeze at.

could be steam then.
i hope its not a downloadable title, paradise was such a big popular game it really needs a proper sequel.

Most likely Steam will get it as well since I picked up Paradise on there.

Count me in...I've been waiting for another Burnout. Had and still have a blast with Paradise City.. If they take what they did with that, slap in what they learned from Hot Pursuit and throw in some Burnout Revenge gameplay? I'm grinning now just thinking about it.

Good deal, my biggest complaint with paradise was that they added trophies after I had already beaten the game. Luckily by now we shouldn't have that kind of problem with any of the games coming out.

I remember they believed that the trophy patch would be retroactive and include all the progress, but it didn't turn out that way. If it had, it would have provided me with my first platinum trophy!

I'd have still needed a couple of things, but by no means did I want to go back and start over again. I already had like 80-100 hours into it. Which is a lot for a racing game I would think.

I hope its a PSN/XBLA game, a remake of Burnout 1 to 4. That would be awesome in HD :P
