A recent rating by the Australian Classifications Board hints at what could be the next game in Criterion's Burnout series. The listing for "Burnout Crash," first turned up on the ratings bodys' website Friday, mentioning only a multi-platform title, published by Electronic Arts.
The folks over at GameBytes also discovered the rumored game on the LinkedIn profile of an Electronic Arts employee. Juan José Galera Pérez, Localization Software Engineer II at Electronic Arts, revealed that he is currently working on Burnout Crash. The CV specifically lists the game as an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 title.
Burnout developer Criterion had said nothing of the series other than a short message regarding the studio's next project. Creative Director Alex Ward tweets "All prepping a presentation on our next game."
Burnout Paradise was released in 2008 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, sending the usually linear racing series in a new open-world direction. The game was later released for the PC in a bundle dubbed, "Burnout Paradise: Ultimate Box." Criterion later put the series on hold while it went to work on Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, requesting that fans stop asking for more Burnout Paradise downloadable content.
