With a movie in the works and great reviews for the latest installment in the franchise, you would think that Need for Speed is back on track to the top. Unfortunately Electronic arts have reportedly put on hold an upcoming unannounced Need for Speed title, as Ghost Games suffer lay offs.
Ghost games have taken the franchise under their wing recently, and is actually made up by two studios; Gothenburg (the team behind Rivals) and UK based Ghost Games Studios. It seems like the UK team's staff is being reviewed, and after some layoffs they will be working on a rumored police-themed titled with Visceral Games. Gothenburg on the other hand will be taking care of the Need for Speed franchise and take over the current unannounced project.
