The lights are on
Electronic Arts has mapped out an aggressive course for the Need for Speed franchise, with some kind of installment expected every year. That doesn't look to change, as EA Gothenburg is hiring en masse for a new title in the racing series.
The studio's website specifically lists the Need for Speed Franchise, and it has job listings for everything from a creative director to a vehicle artist. No specific platforms are listed for the project.
EA Gothenburg was formed earlier this year, and one of its stated purposes was to utilize the Frostbite 2 engine of countrymen and fellow EA studio DICE (Battlefield 3).
Need for Speed: Most Wanted (shown above) developer Criterion is handling the franchise's latest entry, and will also oversee the entire franchise. It will be interesting to see how these two studios work together and where it takes the series.
