EA have announced that the multi-vehicle, extreme sports game that Criterion were working on has been cancelled. The game, which had been untitled, was revealed at E3 in 2014 as a prototype that the studio was working on, and would have included speedboats, ATV’s, planes, helicopters and more. The game had not been seen since its initial reveal.
Criterion will now focus on assisting other EA studios in creating Star Wars games – they have already helped DICE in creating the speeder bike sequences for Star Wars: Battlefront and are developing the X-Wing VR Mission for the same game. The studio is also “experimenting with new IP” according to a statement made by EA.
