    Electronic Arts will postpone the next Need for Speed game by a year and put its studio — Criterion Games — to work supporting EA DICE on the Battlefield series, which will debut on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X this fall. In an interview, EA’s top executive for studios stressed that neither franchise is in trouble, nor is Criterion being taken off its Need for Speed project.

    Laura Miele, EA’s chief studios officer, told Polygon that pandemic working conditions, and the Codemasters acquisition already delivering at least one racing game for EA later this year, made reassigning Criterion a rational call.
