EA reveals plans for Need for Speed, Medal of Honor titles
Criterion-developed next installment in racing series set for next year; MoH reboot information coming "in the months ahead."
EA has indicated that the NFS franchise will continue to have annual installments. During yesterday's post-layoff announcement and earnings report conference call, EA Games president Frank Gibeau said that the Burnout developer is prepping the next Need for Speed for a 2010 release.
"Next year's Need for Speed has been under development now for some time at our award-winning Criterion Studio," Gibeau told analysts. He also boasted that the latest game in the series, Need for Speed Shift, had shipped a combined 2.5 million units for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PSP, and PC.
One of the marquee properties EA is investing in is the Medal of Honor franchise. "In the months ahead you will hear more about our plans to revitalize core IP, including the Medal of Honor franchise," promised the executive.
