Electronic Arts' last videogame year culminated with the passing of five established Criterion Games employees as well as the author team of the recent Need for Speed: Unbound film.
Matt Websterl'head of content and Pete Lakel'head of technology had both announced the retirement of EA just months before. Fuse Games is a new software company based in Guildford, England.
The gaming reality is already working on a first AAA title that has been obscured in mystery, that may or may not be a racing game. Over the next few months, according to Matt Webster, the management will begin a recruitment process for additional players.
All that remains is to wait for the release of Fuse Games' first independent production, which has contributed to several iterations of Need for Speed e Burnout, including the imagery of Need for Speed: Unbound.
