The speedy racer grabs a new publisher.
According to a story over at IGNcube, Criterion has switched publishers for its Burnout franchise. Electronic Arts, known for their own arcade style racer Need for Speed, will be publishing the next in the Burnout series. The game, in which players are encouraged to dodge traffic and perform other outlandish maneuvers, is scheduled to be released in 2004 on all three major consoles (with rumored online support for PS2 and possibly Xbox). However, there is no evidence to support that the game will also be online compatible for GameCube. We'll have more on this story as it develops.
