The Electric Playground's show on Friday reported that Electronic Arts has cancelled development of new titles in its Need for Speed franchise. An EA spokesman gave a generic response that did not dispel the rumor.Personally, I don't think that EA would scrap Need for Speed. Like the article says, it's been going for so long. If anything, they'll just revamp it and give the series a fresh coat of paint. What do you think?
Electronic Playground did not name its source. Reached for comment, EA said: "We're working through a process on people, products, and facilities at EA and don't have any announcements today." That's no defense for a franchise that goes back to 1994, so, it sounds like something's up.
