RUMOR - EA shuttering Black Box studios?

This might be the reason that we keep hearing this Need for Speed rumor. For those of you that weren’t keeping up with news over the weekend, let me fill you in.

Rumor has it that the Need for Speed series is going to take a break…indefinitely. The latest title in the franchise has failed to meet expectations, and EA is none to happy about it. The mediocre sales have been met with word that the franchise is going to take a long, long nap. That leads us to the new information today.

Perhaps the Need for Speed series is going to go away for a bit has something to do with Black Box studios. The Need for Speed rumored has snowballed into a rumor of EA closing Black Box. Obviously, EA hasn’t made any further comment on this rumor just yet, but they might start talking a bit later today.

Remember…EA is in just a bit of financial trouble, and they are looking for some quick ways to set things back on the path of prosperity.
