Burnout HD PS4/Xbox One Collection Unlikely, Dev Says

"Hah!"

27 Comments

Don't hold your breath for a Burnout HD collection for Xbox One/PlayStation 4, as developer Criterion Games is instead spending its time on "newer, even better things."

Asked by a fan on Twitter if such a game was in development, Criterion replied, "Hah! You're not the first with that one. Nice idea but it's still not true. We've moved on to newer, even better things!" The idea would be to presumably bundle previous-generation Burnout titles in one package, not unlike Halo: The Master Chief Collection or Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, but it doesn't sound like it will happen.

Criterion also confirmed that it has "no plans" to make an HD version of 2008's acclaimed racing game Burnout Paradise. However, the studio reiterated that it hopes the title will be playable on Xbox One through backwards compatibility sometime down the road. It is not among the first batch of supported titles, but more games will be added to the lineup ahead of backwards compatibility's arrival in November.

As for what Criterion's "even better" project might be, it's possible this is the epic-looking extreme sports game featuring helicopters, ATVs, planes, jet skis, and wingsuits announced at E3 2014. However, this game was nowhere to be seen at this year's E3 and we still don't know much about it.
