Finally… finally it’s real. EA has officially announced that Criterion are currently developing a new Need for Speed: Most Wanted game. Noticeably it hasn’t been titled Most Wanted 2 (yet, if ever) but further details around the game are expected at E3 2012 next week.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted was an Xbox 360 launch title and considered one of the best racing games of this generation of consoles. The game involved a system of completing objectives, evading police pursuits and beating gang leaders in thrilling races across hair-raising tracks.
Most Wanted 2 was previously leaked earlier this year from a South African retailer who listed the game alongside Dead Space 3 for pre-order.
