New Need For Speed Game In Development From Criterion

Expert Verified By

NFS Unbound Dev Returns For Next Game!

Need For Speed Unbound is the latest game in the popular racing franchise. The game’s development was led by Criterion Games, the studio behind titles like Need For Speed Hot Pursuit.

Following the closure of Ghost Games in 2020, the Need for Speed franchise has returned to Criterion Games, and the studio has helped the franchise move in a new direction with the latest release.

While Need For Speed Unbound is less than a year old, a recent job listing hints that another Need for Speed game is in the works.

Why it matters: The franchise has been an important part of the gaming industry for over two decades, and Need for Speed Unbound has been received better than recent releases from Ghost Games.

Source: Job Listing for World Artist

Criterion Games has posted a new job listing on LinkedIn. The studio is hiring a World Artist for the upcoming racing game. The listing states:

“Weโ€™re now challenging the conventions of the racing genre to take the Need For Speed franchise to the next level.”

Therefore, it appears Criterion Games is returning to deliver another exciting racing game.

The job listing hints at exciting possibilities for the upcoming title. Need For Speed Unbound separated itself from recent entries through a unique aesthetic, mixing cell-shaded art with realistic visuals.

This led to a distinct visual identity for the racing game. As such, Criterion Games could be looking to bring similar innovations with the next game. However, fans should not expect details anytime soon, as the game is likely to have just begun development.

Recent rumors have also hinted at a remake of the critically acclaimed Need For Speed Most Wanted.

While a new Need For Speed entry is not surprising, it is exciting news for fans of the series. The developer appears to be aiming high for the next title, and Criterion Games’ experience in the genre could allow the studio to make an exceptional arcade racer.

In the meantime, fans can try Need for Speed Unbound on the Xbox Game Pass subscription, and PlayStation fans can also enjoy the game at a lower price on EA Play.
