So does that mean Criterion's NFS isn't releasing this year? They posted on their Twitter that the cat was still in the bag after the Hot Pursuit leak happened.

We'll know in less than an hour.

Maybe they meant we haven't seen anything, other than the logo / name ?

I knew there would never be a NFS-less holiday. They did have me scared though. Goodbye, $59.99.

EA Turns up the Heat with Need for Speed Hot Pursuit

Cops and Racers + Hot Cars + Your Friends = Endless Competition
E3 Expo 2010

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Criterion reinvents Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit for the connected generation. Criterion Games, a studio of Electronic Arts Inc.

The high speed busts and heart-stopping getaways are all connected via Need for Speed Autolog. This network not only connects friends for epic head-to-head pursuits and races, but also enables players to compare performances and stats, thereby setting the stage for the ultimate in social competition.

Craig Sullivan, Creative Director of the game said, “At Criterion, we’ve been playing Need for Speed since it was first introduced on 3DO. We are honored and excited by the opportunity to reinvent the franchise for today’s connected audience. Our goal has been to create cops vs. racers pursuits that are so fun, fast and exciting it really brings to life the adrenaline and intensity of the high speed cop pursuit experience with your friends.”

Need more to see an actual race, that one v one mode looked kinda boring.

Still hyped because of Criterion.

Colour me excited. Hopefully it will remove the bad taste of burnout paradise from my mouth.

I really hope there is more to it than "chase forward, oops ahead of criminal, stop, chase back" that that demo had.

Still, it's Criterion, so I'm really pumped for it. And it's Hot Pursuit. Cops vs Criminals. Hopefully better than the "C&R" pack they did for Burnout Paradise.

It's really great that they are going back to some of the open, non-urban environments of earlier NFS games (like forest, coastal, and desert locales). I enjoy the vistas from that a lot more than a bunch of boring buildings. Looks very good.

regarding "cat still in the bag" comment, could this be the first of EAs "large demo games" ?

Hot Pursuit now, bigger version later?
Something about it, as fantastic as it is, felt like that could be the case.

(or SSX ;) )
