Need for Speed: Most Wanted 2 outed by retailer

Notorious South African shop at it again.

The next entry in EA's annual Need for Speed franchise will be a sequel to 2005 game Need for Speed: Most Wanted, according to leak-prone South African retailer BTGames.

No release date or launch platforms are mentioned on the Need For Speed Most Wanted 2 product page. But you can pre-order it, if you like.

Criterion, maker of Burnout and the fabulous Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, is expected to be the developer behind the next released Need for Speed game. Is it this one - Most Wanted 2?

Criterion was spotted hiring for an open world racer project last summer.

Eurogamer's then editor Kristan Reed wrote our Need for Speed: Most Wanted review, scoring an impressive, series-back-on-track, 8/10.

BTGames' may want to repair its bucket, having also leaked Dead Space 3 today.

BTGames was correct when it leaked Jak & Daxter HD Collection ahead of Sony's official announcement.
