Criterion working on an unnamed extreme racing IP [update: trailer]

Former Need for Speed and Burnout developer Criterion Games is working on a new extreme racing IP, EA revealed during their E3 press conference.

The game will take an unconventional approach to racing, looping in a diverse set of vehicles including ATVs, helicopters, boats, snowmobiles, and even wingsuits. The project will also mix things up by restricting players to a first-person view at all times. That’s due in part to the game’s main source of inspiration, the proliferation of POV videos filmed with GoPro cameras and similar equipment.

As the title is still apparently quite early in development, most of what we saw was concept art and very early prototype footage. No title was given, nor was there any specific discussion of target platforms or release date. It’s probably safe to assume that it’s headed to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at the very least.
