Codemasters has announced that it will be part of the new Need for Speed Dream Team. The team will work on the development of the upcoming Need for Speed game, which is set to release in 2020. Codemasters will be responsible for the game’s physics and AI, while Criterion Games will handle the game’s overall design. This marks the first time that Codemasters has been involved in the development of a Need for Speed game.
The Need for Speed Dream Team is comprised of some of the most experienced and talented developers in the industry. With Codemasters on board, the team is now even better equipped to create an amazing racing game that fans will love. We can’t wait to see what they come up with.
It’s hard to deny that the Need for Speed franchise has had its ups and downs over the years. While there have been some truly great entries in the series, there have also been some that have failed to live up to expectations. In recent years, it has felt like the series has been spinning its wheels, with each new release feeling more like a rehash of what came before.Clearly, publisher EA believes that something needs to change if the series is going to continue to be successful. To that end, they have decided to move development of the series from previous developer Ghost Games over to two of their internal studios: Criterion Games and EA Dice.Both of these studios have a proven track record when it comes to developing racing games. Criterion Games is responsible for the highly successful Burnout series, while EA Dice is best known for their work on the popular Need for Speed: Underground series. With such experienced developers at the helm, it’s safe to say that fans of the series have reason to be excited for what lies ahead.Only time will tell if this move will be enough to get the Need for Speed franchise back on track. However, with two of the most talented studios in the business now working on the series,
The statement confirms what had been rumored for some time – that Criterion Games and Codemasters Cheshire are joining forces to create the future of Need for Speed. This is a natural progression, given the close partnership that the two studios have developed over recent months. The move will see Codemasters Cheshire folded into Criterion Games, with the resulting studio having two location hubs. This will allow Criterion Games to capitalize on the expertise and experience of both teams, as they work together to create an exciting new direction for the Need for Speed franchise.
Criterion Games is a British video game developer, best known for its work on the Burnout and Need for Speed franchises. The studio was founded in 1993 by Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry, and was acquired by Electronic Arts in 2004. Criterion is currently based in Guildford, Surrey. The studio has a long history of making action-packed racing games, dating back to its first title, Road Rash, which was released for the Sega Genesis in 1991. In recent years, Criterion has been primarily working on support projects for other EA studios, such as Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Battlefield 1. However, the studio has also been working on its own new IP, which is expected to be released sometime in 2018. Despite its recent focus on supporting other studios, there’s no doubt that Criterion remains one of the premier racing game developers in the industry.
Codemasters Cheshire is a racing game development studio located in Cheshire, England. The studio was founded in 2016 by former employees of Evolution Studios, which was shut down by Sony the same year. The studio’s first game, Motorstorm: Apocalypse, was released in 2011 to critical acclaim. However, the studio’s second game, Driveclub, was less well-received. In 2015, Codemasters acquired the studio from Sony. The following year, the studio released Dirt Rally, which was critically acclaimed and became a commercial success. Since then, Codemasters Cheshire has continued to develop successful racing games such as Grid and F1 2020.
Need for Speed has always been about the thrill of high-speed racing, and the next instalment looks like it will be taking things to the next level. With development studios that are known for their work on action-packed games, we can expect some heart-pounding racing moments. And with a licensed soundtrack that is sure to get your adrenaline pumping, this game is shaping up to be one of the most exhilarating experiences yet. If it lives up to the talent behind it, we could be in for something truly special.
