Criterion rubbishes NFS leaks

All "100% fake", says developer.

Burnout developer Criterion has rubbished leaks sprung this morning about the new Need for Speed game.

"NFS stories on the net today - 100% FAKE," Tweeted Criterion.

Those reports claimed the game would be called Out of the Law and set in a fictional San Francisco known as Sun-Bay. Police cars would apparently be unmarked and racing was to be focused on street cars rather than expensive sports cars.

Two pieces of concept art were leaked.

EA confirmed last November that Criterion is making the next instalment of Need for Speed, but so far that's all we know.
