Reddit seems to be freaking out about it, then again reddit seems to freak out about anything.
What recent NFS titles "suck your wallet dry"?I feel NFS should just be killed off and EA produce a new racing game series instead. Preferably one that isn't terrible and doesn't suck your wallet dry.
“Ghost Games have helped to bring some great Need for Speed experiences to our players. Consistently delivering that at AAA levels means we need teams with diverse skills in locations where we can continually support them and bring in new team members to join.
Despite our best efforts to establish an independent development group in Gothenburg over several years, it’s become clear that the breadth of talent we need to maintain a full AAA studio is just not available to us there. Criterion can also provide the consistent leadership that we need to continue creating and delivering new Need for Speed experiences for a long time to come.”
Yeah. They're scared of another "MW2012." I hate how they write Most Wanted 2012 off simply because it has 'Most Wanted' on the title and that it had different physics. That said, I may sound biased because I actually like Most Wanted 2012 and -gasp- prefer it over Most Wanted 2005!Reddit seems to be freaking out about it, then again reddit seems to freak out about anything.
I can't say "most" because I'm not sure about staffing numbers, however the rough upshot is that when EA gave NFS to Ghost, Ghost was EA Gothenburg and took on a load of Criterion staff in Gothenburg and established a team inside Criterion called Ghost Games UK - there's also a studio in Romania.I guess I've been wrong for past five years, because I always thought Ghost Games is more or less Criterion with different branding.
Anyway, if I'm reading the article correctly, most of the Ghost Games staff will go to Criterion to continue their work on the game? I've gotta say I'm not really seeing the Need For Drama here.
