I hope NFS Underground is rebooted. I wasted countless hours on the second one, which is my favourite NFS. Just so much customization in that game compared to what they have in the newer ones.

bluexy, I was right all along. To carry on my rolling streak it will be released October-November.

In the logo. I see famous sights of London and Rome. Is this logo official?

I am the source. I am a diehard NFS fan and there has been a NFS every year since 1997 when NFS 2 released. Need for Speed 2 took 3 years to develop from 1994 (when the original was released) to 1997. Now do i win a prize?

I hope this doesn't end up like the Most Wanted remake. They completely changed the concept of the original.

I think that might've been the point.

Would prefer to see a new Burnout, but I knew that'd be unlikely.

I loved the Most Wanted remake.
I might not know the Need For Speed of old, but transfering the series to a more Burnout-esque style seems to be mixing fans.
I say if Criterion are remaking it, go to the originals for inspiration and concepts even if they are making it a more Burnout-esque game.
As for the reveal, I'd say E3. After all, they rocked up a big reveal at last year's E3 for Most Wanted. Why not do the same thing again?
Hopefully we won't have to put up with a lot of sports games either side of it.

Now this has been debunked I'd like it to be a shooter. I know the industry is over saturated with FPS games but Criterion did make 'Black' which is one of the best FPS games of the PS2 era. I'd love to see them try their hand at another game like it.

There will still be a NFS game. Even if its not Criterion doing it. NOBODY shall break the tradition of a yearly NFS game.
