Need for Speed Woes Follow-up

Joystiq has a follow-up on recent rumors that the Need for Speed franchise is in trouble, after The Electric Playground reported that EA may be cancelling the long-running racing series. This new report is no more concrete than the previous one, as it is attributed to "a purported EA employ [sic]," but it says that it is EA's Black Box studio that's in trouble, and is "most likely" being closed, and the NFS and Skate teams will be moved to EA's Burnaby studios. Their report indicates what previously have been three distinct NFS teams will be scaled back and that development of at least one upcoming NFS game will be handled by EA's Criterion Games using the engine from the Burnout series.
