Oopsies: GAME Outs New Need for Speed
British games retailer GAME is pretty cool, I guess. I’ve never been to one. I’ve never even been to the country where they have them. Oh well. All I know is that they’re now a source, because whoever runs their Twitter account is a doofus.
And that’s because they tweeted this:
EA presentation was great. Had mentions of a new Medal of Honour and Need for Speed 13! EA have an exciting year ahead.
The tweet has since been deleted.
Medal of Honor 2 is not a surprise, of course, as it’s already been announced, and a new Need for Speed is also not a surprise, though that has not been announced and nobody has even hinted at it before now. EA has gotten in the habit of announcing new NFS titles at E3 before release at the end of the year, and one would expect that will be the case this year as well.
Now the question is: who is developing it? Would this be Criterion’s open-world racer? I hope so, because I want that sooner rather than later. After all, Burnout Paradise, their previous open-world racer, is probably my most played racing game of all time. Luh dat s–t.
