Ultimately scooped up by EA, the sequence has sadly been put to at least one aspect in favour of the better-selling Want for Pace, nevertheless it appears the studio hasn’t forgotten its roots regardless of all of the change.
Talking in an interview with Eurogamer, Kieran Crimmins — inventive director on the upcoming Want for Pace Unbound — is requested in regards to the potential of a Burnout revival. Reasonably than brush the query to at least one aspect, Crimmins offers a surprisingly hopeful reply.
“It isn’t one thing we’re taking a look at doing now,” he begins, “however in case you’re speaking in regards to the two video games that the studio has probably the most ardour for, they’re clearly Want for Pace and Burnout.” He continues, commenting that Burnout’s “distinctive tackle racing” could be “completely phenomenal” at the moment.
“So I assume what I am saying is, I might love to do this,” Crimmins provides. Whereas a brand new Burnout is not “within the speedy future plans”, he says “it would be actually enjoyable”.
There’s a number of ardour right here at Push Sq. for Burnout, nearly all of it emanating from this specific writer, so we sincerely hope it will get one other day within the solar.
