Criterion Founders Headed for Greener Pastures

Former Criterion founders enter themselves into the already crowded race! Can they regain their title?

Twitter is the land of breaking news.

Alex Ward announced that he and Fiona Sperry, founding members of the EA owned studio Criterion, who bought us the crash and smash hit franchise Burnout have founded a new company. We know very little about the studio's aims so far, though they have a website and Twitter account to follow.

Say hello to...  

Today we are excited to announce our new British games company -Three Fields Entertainment," Ward said. “We are looking for talented Staff who are skilled in at least three fields of creating electronic entertainment.

Criterion is currently based in Guildford, England. The location seems popular for a lot of studios, large and small. Will Three Fields Entertainment stay there? I'd say it is a safe bet...

I for one very excited by this. I can only dream about them getting the Burnout rights back from EA. Did you play any of the Burnout franchise? Do you want a fresh IP? Let us know in the comments section below!
