Criterion Games, the speed junkies behind the heralded Burnout franchise, has some unfinished business in the racing genre. The development studio recently posted a few job advertisements for its next game, and while not confirmed, all sources point toward the continuation of its staple series.
“Criterion Games is looking for talented Cinematic Artists to work on the world’s number one, multi award winning, arcade racing franchise,” the advertisement reads. “You’ll be part of the in game Cinematic Team within EA’s BAFTA award winning Criterion Games studio; with responsibility for bringing to life the visceral, brutal car action Criterion is critically acclaimed, trusted and renowned for.”
Not convinced? Criterion specifically asked for both a Senior VFX Engineer and a Cinematic Cut Scene Artist for an unannounced “AAA racing title.” Anyone who actually gets the job will be tasked with designing, “dynamic action sequences” and “delivering stylish, engaging and entertaining solutions to our high-octane driving action.”
Once again, no one specifically said “Burnout,” but all the evidence is here. Any other ideas of what it could be? Let us know in the comments below, or discuss Burnout in our forums.
