Criterion Cofounders Leave

Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry are departing Criterion Games, the racing-oriented developer (Burnout series, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Need for Speed: Most Wanted) they helped cofound, reports Polygon, where they have a statement about the change from Electronic Arts. "Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry have decided to leave EA," an EA spokesperson told them. "We appreciate their many contributions through the years and wish them well in their future endeavours." The EA statement also mentions that Criterion continues to develop a new IP for next-generation consoles, and the Criterion Games website has a new year message saying they're "cooking up something new." Following the original report, Alex Ward tweeted about plans for a new company, saying: "Just decided to start afresh and form a new games company with @FionaSperry #freshstart."

Hells yeah, the name of the real game is selling your company for a whack of dough. Not all of us need or want to be Bill Gates. A few mil and I'm good thanks.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
