Burnout to receive police vehicles, pursuit gameplay?

Electronic Arts has a strong history of publishing great racing titles, from the early days of Road Rash, to the Need for Speed franchise, and most recently, Burnout Paradise. Unfortunately for the publisher, their two former titles either died or have hit quite the standstill in successful sales figures. On the flip side, Burnout Paradise has continued to push the bill in providing gamers with consistently fresh content to prolong the gaming experience.
So, what's next in line for the Burnout franchise? If recent rumors are to be taken seriously, you can expect police vehicles to make their way into Paradise City, and perhaps bring with them a hot pursuit mode like the glory days of Need for Speed. It's no secret that this would inevitably make Burnout Paradise the premiere racer within the current generation, bar none.
We've sent out an email to the guys at Criterion to see if we can land any further information on what's to come.

Burnout is already the best and most fun racing game out there, plus all new content is absolutely FREE! Hope this rumour comes to be true which will make this excellent game even better!

this would be a good thing although they still need to add splitscreen, but if i remeber corerectly they have at least patched it so that you can re start races.

The mode that's on Burnout 2?

cool but i think its strange they keep doing this. there won't be anything new for the next burnout title....

i'm stoked it dropped to 19.99 and i'm getting it as soon as i get out of work today. seems like quite the racing game especially now that updates are so prominent now you get a game that is ever changing to constantly be better and better.

They dont need to make a next Burnout game if they keep releasing updates that people will actually buy. That's been the complaint against EA for decades, all they do is release a minor upgrade and slap a new year on it and expect people to instantly slap down 50 to 60 bucks, that dosent cut it anymore and I'm glad they're finally realizing that. Both with this AND Rockband.
The puzzling thing to me though is Why would we need Pursuit when we already have Road Rage and Marked Man?

they don't need to make another game, just keep adding on everything they want.
