Burnout Developer's Extreme Sports game canceled for more Star Wars games

There goes what could of been a new experience.

Back at 2014's E3, EA announced a new extreme sports game by Burnout and Need for Speed developer, Criterion Games. However, this unnamed game is no longer in development, as the publisher has cancelled it altogether. Instead, Criterion has now shifted its focus towards supporting other developers in making new Star Wars games.

An EA representative told Gamespot:

"While they've moved on from the previous project they've spoken about and aren't pursuing it, they are continuing to build new ideas and experiment with new IP for EA, in addition to continuing to collaborate with other EA studios."

The cancelled game was only a prototype when it was first announced. And it would not only include the car racing and crashing that studio was known for, but it was also going to include ATVs, helicopters, planes, jet skis, wing suits, motorbikes, and much more. Check out the video below to see what it could of been like:
