A job listing
for a "Senior Vehicle Artist" at the new EA Gothenburg studio in Sweden has confirmed that the studio is working on a racing title built on EA DICE's Frostbite 2.0 engine, and the studio's website
has further revealed that it is indeed a new addition to EA's staple Need for Speed franchise (via: VideoGamer
EA Gothenburg's website has confirmed that the studio is developing a game "in the Need For Speed franchise".
"Would you like to be a part of EA?", reads the site. "Would you like to work on a game in the Need for Speed franchise? You now have the opportunity to become a part of EA Gothenburg and fulfill those two wishes!"
Last year's Need for Speed: The Run, from Canadian studio EA Black Box was also built on Frostbite 2.0 technology, and some have speculated that the game's underwhelming reception might be the reason for EA shifting the franchise to other studios.
The only in-development Need for Speed currently announced by EA is Criterion Games' Need for Speed Most Wanted, due November 1st 2012, but seeing as EA are fond of their annual iterations, it's likely we'll see EA Gothenburg's effort in holiday season 2013.
