One of the fastest cars built by man will be included as a free piece of downloadable content in Need for Speed Rivals.
Need For Speed Rivals
Ghost Games, formally known as EA Gothenburg until a recent rebranding, was just hit with multiple layoffs and any progress made towards the next Need for Speed title has hit a red light.
With the lack of a first-party racing title arriving at launch for the PlayStation 4, EA jumped on the chance to have the only game in town, and released Need for Speed: Rivals a few days early for Sony's next-gen console. Criterion has stepped to the side for Ghost Games, which delivers an adrenaline-fueled racer that makes the series as competitive as it's ever been, and truly delivers on the Rivals namesake.
The U.K.-based studio has seen some staff realignment, and now Criterion remains a workforce of barely more than a dozen developers.
