Rumour-Has-It-That-a-Need-for-Speed-Underground-Reboot-is-in-the-WorksCriterion Games have been rebooting titles in the NFS back catalogue since 2010 – Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, Need For Speed: Most Wanted, and now it looks like they may be completing the trilogy.

A new Need For Speed: Underground logo was sent to EGM – which you can see to the right – by an anonymous source. It is said to be a part of the game’s Xbox 360 box art. The source has also told them that the setting for this reboot will be Bayview, but a re-imagined Bayview and not the one seen in NFS: Underground 2.

The publication also point to a LinkedIn CV of a Criterion employee that lists an “Unannounced Title” to be released, this year.
