NFS Series may end soon

It seems like its a dead end for the NEED FOR SPEED SERIES.

AS Electric Playground has reported that Electronic Arts has cancelled development of future titles of Need for Speed series. In response, EA spokesperson gave a generic response of not commenting on market rumors.

The comment received on this news was "We're working through a process on people, products, and facilities at EA and don't have any announcements today."

Electronics Arts has also reportedly shelved its plans of opening a new game development studio at Vancouver due to poor holiday sales and global economic recession.

The company recently scaled down their revenue and earning expectations for the fiscal year 2009.

EA's latest NFS installment - Need for Speed UnderCover - has received mixed and mostly cold response from the gamer community and audience. It won't be surprising if EA adopts Rockstar Games' strategy and introduce their titles at more affordable rates. Actually, that might just work in terms of sales.

EA is yet to come out with an official statement on Vancouver Studio franchisee lay-off.
