Criterion Games is currently working on the latest NFS part, but did you know that the company – that was made known to most gamers for its Burnout series – is interested in creating a new Black or Road Rash game? That was revealed in an interview with Guardian by Criterion’s creative director Craig Sullivan.
As Sullivan said:
“When we did Burnout Paradise we did some motorbike DLC and now everyone thinks that we’re going to do Road Rash at some point. I had a lot of fun playing that game, we think bikes are fun. We might make a Road Rash game…. But then we might make a game without vehicles in it. I mean, we made Black, I was the lead designer – we might make a game about blowing the crap out of each other!”
Sullivan has also added that Road Rash is a good fit for Criterion and promised that there will be a new Burnout game at a later date.
Below you can find a prototype video from a Road Rash game that was under development five years ago and might give you an idea of what a modern-day Road Rash game could look like.
Need For Speed: Most Wanted is currently planned for a November 2nd release on PC, X360 and PS3!
