Criterion Co-Founders Planning A Spiritual Successor to Burnout

Back in 2014, co-founders of the Burnout series developer Criterion Games Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry, left the studio to form their own company called Three Fields Entertainment. Today, it has been revealed that they are planning on working on a successor to the Burnout series. Right after they’re done with their first game.

The announcement comes from the studio’s official Twitter account. “Two things”, the tweet reads. “Our first game is a multiplayer sports game. Coming Spring 2016. Then we make a driving game.” Another Tweet reads ““What sort of driving game you ask? A spiritual successor. Speed. Traffic. And Crashing. Lots and lots of crashing.” Since then, the studio has been polling fans to see what version of the game this spiritual successor will be; fingers crossed for Burnout 3: Takedown.

While it won’t be an official Burnout game, it is nice to see the kind of car destruction that the series is known for coming back. The last official Burnout game from Criterion was Burnout: Paradise on the Xbox 360 back in 2008. It is going to be compatible with Xbox One backwards compatibility, but an HD remaster was recently ruled out.
