Criterion shoots down NFS: Underground reboot rumors
Creative director Alex Ward calls leaked logo "totally fake," says studio not planning to make any more sequels or remakes.
Yesterday, a source provided EGMNow with information and a logo for a Need for Speed: Underground reboot reportedly in development at Criterion Games. This report is false, the developer has asserted.
He followed that tweet up with another that suggests Criterion is working on something altogether new.
"May as well add this. Sequels. Reboots. Remakes. Been there. Done that," he said.
Ward never references the original story in his tweets, so it is possible that his comments are unrelated. However, given the timing, this seems unlikely.
The studio currently does not have any announced projects, though Criterion's Craig Sullivan last year promised the developer would one day make another Burnout game.
