The next entry in EA's annual Need for Speed franchise will be a sequel to 2005 game Need for Speed: Most Wanted, according to leak-prone South African retailer BTGames.
No release date or launch platforms are mentioned on the Need For Speed Most Wanted 2 product page. But you can pre-order it, if you like.
Criterion, maker of Burnout and the fabulous Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, is expected to be the developer behind the next released Need for Speed game. Is it this one - Most Wanted 2?

Criterion was spotted hiring for an open world racer project last summer.
Eurogamer's then editor Kristan Reed wrote our Need for Speed: Most Wanted review, scoring an impressive, series-back-on-track, 8/10.
BTGames' may want to repair its bucket, having also leaked Dead Space 3 today.
BTGames was correct when it leaked Jak & Daxter HD Collection ahead of Sony's official announcement.

Finally!! Why did they wait so long!? People always ranted and raved how they like that game so much. I loved it and I wouldn't be in to cars or modding cars in real life but in games, yes.

I kept my Peugot 206 and never upgraded to the faster cars. I just put all my money in to my little Euro-car and it was the anti-christ.

Oh and this the news about a car game the guy from Criterion I was speaking (on the phone in my job) was working on and was excited about and he couldn't tell me what it was. I brought this up on the forums about 2 months ago. biggrin.gif

This is kind of a stab in the dark here... You're gonna base this on some non official info? I was never really an NFS fan, but most of my friends like it, so I guess I'm happy for them, concidering that this info is legit tounge.gif

Like I said, I was chatting to a guy from Criterion. He told me they were working on a car game that he was chuffed about. So, yeah, I'd say it's legit.

Didn't see it but it sounds awful.

Anyway, I got a call in work from a dev at Criterion. Anyway, his Gamertag was stolen and we were chatting about what he worked on there. He worked on Black and Burnout etc. He said he was in work calling from the 'Black' room where they have all the props from the ad campaign. He also mentioned they're working on a car game due to be released this year and it's amazing. He said it's unannounced yet so I'm thinking it's a new Burnout. We'll see its true. I know the guy wasn't sh*tting me because he was joking at the irony of someone robbing his MS points to by FIFA players and he works for EA (Criterion were bought by them)

Anyway, I can't wait to see what game it is.

We definitely need Underground 3. Underground 2 is the best NFS IMO. But I am looking forward to this one as well. Most Wanted was great. I'm not a fan of racing games, but free roaming street racing NFS games are different. I love customizing cars.

Aesthetically, no.

Porsche Unleashed, Underground 2, Most Wanted and recently, Hot Pursuit 2 were by far the bet NFS games ever. Others don't even come close. I'd absolutely love to see a sequel to MW.

I thought Most Wanted was always one of the best NFS games made and I'm glad they're going to make a 2nd one. Underground 2 however was my favourite. That was an immense game.

Most Wanted was definitely my favourite. Back in the day it was stunning. Need to go back and finish it sometime, not sure why I didn't when I first got it. I've tried before, and it's one of these racing games that when you pick it back up, everything feels just ridiculously fast. biggrin.gif

People will kill me, but Most Wanted with Undercover were my least liked Need For Speed games..

Hot Pursuit 2, Underground 1 & 2, Carbon, Pro Street were my favorites.

The Run has yet to be tested by me, but I think I'll put it on same level as Most Wanted in my list.

I dunno why people are excited for Most Wanted, except that it almost goes back to the roots? The only good thing I could remember was the Lexus and M3 GTR and Blacklist also was good.

Plus, I think Carbon is the sequel of Most Wanted, the story continued in Carbon where the one in Most Wanted dropped off.

Don't get hyped.

It will most likely be a linear racing game very identical to hot pursuit, it will be made cheaply for a quick buck.

I have lost all faith in sequels being made, especially of those games i once really enjoyed. It will most likely be a disappointment.

Shhh! Don't crush my hopes into millions of pieces biggrin.gif


I know, I know. It's EA. Maybe they're going to make a good game this time around? Maybe they'll give us the NFS we love, without any overpriced DLC and sh*tty endings. If MW2 is anything then it's EA's chance to change their worst company status.


If they f*ck this one up they I won't buy any EA product ever again.

Hot Pursuit was awesome! If this is being made by Criterion then I'm excited. I love MW, Underground 1/2 but Carbon, Pro Street and Undercover were awful.

i do like need for speed and racing games, but need for speed most wanted 1 sucked, i remember thinking "so this is what current gen NFS games are gonna be like?" then never playing another NFS again (apart from shift 1 and 2). it was a huge let down. shift 2 was cool though.

My favorite NFS games:

1. Most Wanted

2. Underground 1/2

3. High Stakes (PC and PS2/1)

4. Porsche Unleashed/Porsche 2000 (PC/PS1/)

5. Shift 2 Unleashed

-------------------------------------------------------------
Bonus:

III Hot Pursuit (PC)
The Run (Cool car list but the cops are WAAAAY too fast and the story was too short. suicidal.gif )

So yeah, I think this game will be EPIC! biggrin.gif

If you don't want to buy it, then don't. Don't try and spoil it for everybody else just because you cannot see differences between games.

YES! Thank You! Iv'e been waiting for this! My one worry about it though. I worry that it will just be a story continuation. I want it to return to the format of MW. I liked the old pursuit and cooldown system. I liked the tollbooth races. I liked the Blacklist. I want these things to return. Maybe not the Blacklist, since it was cleaned out and everyone arrested, but I want characters to return, and characters from MW and Carbon to meet. Carbon is in the same "universe" (GTA logic), so I want the characters met in Carbon to have some presence in MW2(confusing abbreviations?). This will be the best seller of the NFS serious if EA learns how to play their cards right.

This is what we all wanted, and it will completely end NFS if they don't do this right.

Not excited. Undercover was actually more or less MW2 and it sucked. Seriously, Undercover ripped off MW so much its pitiful.

I loved this game, but, as along with others, never actually did complete it fully. Think I gave up as I got into the top 5, and just put it down. I'm hyped for this game, but I'm one of those that still wants to see an Underground 3 come along.

SWEET MOTHER OF f*ck YES

Most Wanted is my favorite NFS of all time. Underground 2 is a close second. Put U2's customization with MW and you'd have a bomb.

On the other hand, they've been using the same models from MW onwards (and the muscle cars from Carbon) and everything after MW sucked graphically and storywise, including Undercover, so I just hope they turn over a new leaf...

This.

No idea why everyone "begged" for Most Wanted 2, when essentially Carbon and Undercover were its sequel. What key elements from Most Wanted are missing from Carbon and Undercover?

But Carbon was set at night and MW was set at dusk! Its completely different! Doesn't matter that the driving, music, atmosphere, cars, tuning and plot were exactly the same!

Carbon was too easy and you could finish everything it in 2 days. Undercover had atrocious driving and it was filled with gamebreaking bugs. Some of them are still present I believe.
