    Criterion in control of entire Need for Speed franchise

    Various developers have got their hands dirty with the Need For Speed franchise in recent years with mixed results, but from now on the franchise will be in the talented hands of Burnout developer Criterion.

    Criterion vice president Alex Ward told GameInformer recently that the days of random developers churning out yearly NFS updates are over. "Maybe it's been that way in the past, but that's changed this year with what we're doing... Our stamp's going to be in everything you see in Need for Speed and Burnout going forward in the future," he said.

    "It's not going to be spread anymore across different companies. Different studios have had a crack at it - it's definitely a Criterion gig now.

    Ward wouldn't confirm that all Need for Speed titles for the foreseeable future would developed wholly by Criterion, but he did say that the studio will have "strong involvement" in them.

    "Going forward now, with Most Wanted and what we'll do in the future [will have], shall we say, a strong Criterion involvement," he went on," said Ward.

    "I'm personally involved in how the cars drive, how the game will play out, how connected they are, and what the features are."

    Criterion's 2012 NFS game, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, is due for release on October 30 in North America, and November 2 in Europe. The game will be available on PC, Xbox and PS3.
