    Default EA has officially closed Need for Speed Studio BlackBox

    Black box, the studio responsible for the Need for Speed and Skate franchises has officially been given the chop. EA has said in a press release

    "Shutting down the studio is part of EAís restructuring plan that hopes to save them US$ 120 million in annual costs. Part of the plan is to reduce their overall workforce by 10%, or 1,000 people."

    The press release had also stated the Black Box is only 1 of 9 studios that will be getting consolidated or shut down. itís a damn shame isnít it. Well as long as they donít decide to cut any of the guys from Bioware I think we will survive.


    Letís just hope that the upcoming Skate. 2 has been passed on to another game house or at least will get a chance to be finished. And who knows, EA might decide to keep the Need for Speed Franchise and just pass it on to another dev (maybe a better one). Weíll have to wait and see...

    yeah, nfsplanet-e ajke porlam je ora studio change korbe.....CRITERION GAMES er kase dile to CHOROM hobe...man i can't wait

    read this -

    The publisher Electronic Arts is currently undergoing some restructuring and announced today redundancies of 10% (~1,000 people) of its work force (which represents a four percent increase from the six percent reduction EA announced in October).

    Additionally at least nine studio and publishing locations are going to be closed or consolidated, among them EA Black Box, the developers of the Need for Speed series since Hot Pursuit 2. The development team will move to the nearby EA studio location in Burnaby, British Columbia.

    So the rumours of shutting down the NFS series last week (see here and here) are partly true, but it doesn't seem like EA is cutting NFS. It's not sure however, who will continue the series: the Black Box team, maybe Criterion Games (the makers of Burnout) or a fusioned team...

    The layoffs and restructuring plan will result in annual cost savings of approximately $120 million and restructuring charges of approximately $55-65 million over the next several quarters.

    Blackbox failed hard! Time to shift studios! A great move in my opinion! Maybe we may again see great Need for Speeds such as Porsche Unleashed and Underground 2.

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    isnt da game u r talkin abt called NFS UNDER COVER !!!!!

    i didnt get u ..... wats ur point ???? there have many games in development for many years ...... but doesnt mean they will be released soon ....... think abt starcraft 2; onekkdin dhore development e silo ....... and even if EA was planning on b4 pro street ..... u r not realising that current economic situation doesnt support dat ......... there is a reason y EA has shut off dat developer only ...... they cud have closed criterion or other ea studies ...... y didnt they ????? coz nfs was not makin money as they had wanted .......

    now ora reason to bolei dise ...... they want to decrease cost ...... they didnt do it to save nfs franchise ......... money is more important than an unprofitable franchise ....... abar ai franchise ta pc te beshi popular ..... nowadays most developers arnt bothered abt pc gaming like consoles .......

    by da way, i just speculated wat might happen to nfs franchise ....... i didnt say for anything wid 100% surity ....... but u guys are takin da news as gud news dat nfs will be moved to another developer ........ even if dat happens, dats gonna take some time ....... it just doesnt happen overnight ......

    dats y i predicted there might be no nfs next year ....... dats my prediction ..... i might be wrong ......

    once u got the xperience u can develop anythin using this. so criterion has the xperience on making racing game.
    so i think it wont be problem releasing the game in the next year and the studio is not closing down actually ... it will merged with other developers ... the black box name will be remained

    here the news also will be found

    the last nfs i played was nfs underground 2 , i found it quite boring , so did not finish it , the last nfs i finished was underground 1 , underground 1's car modification and drifts/drags thingy kinda blew me away that time , but i did nt like the game play much, the nfs i enjoyed most is still porshe unleashed, it was so §§§§ing hard(atleast it seemed hard to me that time) , i never managed to finish it ... lol
