Burnout's spiritual successor enters development

Developer Three Fields Entertainment has not elaborated yet on what style of Burnout game will be used.

We have know that a spirtual successor to Burnout was coming sometime after developer Three Fields Entertainment released its fun little Dangerous Golf game set it the Burnout universe. Now that the game is out, it is time for the racing game to begin development.

TFE co-founder Alex Ward tweeted as much this morning, offering just the simple "Work has begun on a driving game." And if the game holds true to what was tweeted last year from TFE, there will be "Speed. Traffic. And Crashing. Lots and lots of crashing."

There are few details on what form the game will take, whether it will be challenge-based as the early games were, or more of an open world format of the Paradise variety. Even TFE wants to keep us guessing

Ward and co-founder Fiona Sperry left developer Criterion in March 2014 to form TFE. Both had co-founder Criterion, which went on to create the Burnout franchise for Electronic Arts.

      Want Burnout! I hope for an open world with restricted courses during events, like (the first) Need for Speed Most Wanted game.

      All I ask for is a proper crash mode; none of this bounce-around-endlessly nonsense that was Paradise's poor excuse for one.

        yeah, not having Crash Mode really sucked.

      I hope this isn't prehype for a kickstarter.

      I hope it's like 3 and revenge and not Paradise. Also I don't care about crash mode because that shit is fun for like 10 minutes. I just want racing on tracks you have to memorize, traffic, takedowns, and timed events on a track.

        I want a hybrid. I want the open world of Paradise with all the gate/sign smashing, the exploration and free driving abilities, but I also want a crash and takedown mode. I really missed turning other cars into missiles.

        I think it would be great if once you initiated an event the track would close off and become like revenge's closed courses, because in Paradise there would be times where I just completely missed the turn due to the open nature of the tracks and I couldn't immediately restart until they added that feature in a later patch.

        Yeah, I hope it's most like Burnout 2 & 3 but with solid online racing. As much as I liked Paradise, I don't need another one of those.

        I figure a smaller team like these guys would have a better shot doing tracks rather than creating a bigger and better open world. And in these days of DLC they could keep adding new tracks and keep it going for a while. Plus Forza Horizon 3 is coming soon which will satisfy my open world driving needs.

        I hated Paradise but I definitely want crash mode. That is a must.

        Same. I don't want to navigate an open world, I want to get dropped into a funnel where shit gets wrecked

      so does that mean we can bring back the Burnout shack squad?

      I hope it's good! Dangerous Golf was... pretty bad. It felt totally random rather than offering any control of the ball and it just got boring really quickly.

      I hope it's like Paradise. One of the best games ever.
