EA goes overboard with Need for Speed names

More curious domain registration news today.

EA has secured the web addresses for fourteen (indeed, 14!) possible new Need for Speed games, superannuation has spotted, so don’t go raising an eyebrow if Criterion’s new game shows up bearing one of the following subtitles: Boost, Drift Kings, Eliminator, Lightning, No Limits, Overdrive, Proven, Redline, *deep breath*, Showdown, Street Kings, Takedown, The Run, Time Attack, or Underground East.

Criterion’s next, which is one of three Need for Speed titles to be released in the next 10 months, should be the next one that gets announced. The studio’s hinted that E3 will be the suitable place to do so.
