Criterion hiring for ‘#1 arcade racing franchise’

Burnout family Criterion is hiring for “the world’s number one, multi award winning, arcade racing franchise,” giving us hope that a new addition to the missed series is in the works.

With no proper entry since 2008’s Burnout Paradise (Burnout Crash doesn’t count, mmkey), it’s high time too, isn’t it?

Looking at a spotted job listing, we can expect “dynamic action sequences” along with “terrifying jumps, insane crashes and epic car chases.” If it sounds like a duck…

Criterion’s last big game was 2010’s Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. It’s expected (and hoped) that a sequel will be announced in time for a fall launch this year.
