That mysterious Need for Speed game mentioned during EA’s fiscal 2012 investors call may become slightly less ethereal during E3, as TwitchTV’s booth schedule lists “Need for Speed: Most Wanted” as one of the games it’ll be showcasing, according to IGN.
If that name sounds familiar, that’s because it should: The original Need for Speed: Most Wanted (above) was released on nearly every system in existence way back in the ancient caveman days of 2005. It’s possible that this may be the Criterion-developed Need for Speed game the rumor mill was churning over a couple weeks ago, but that’s just rampant speculation on our part.
It’s also possible that TwitchTV could merely be showing off the Game Boy Advance port of the original or something, we’re going to go ahead and assume that isn’t the case since we don’t live in a Far Side cartoon.
Update: We have also received the schedule in question and can confirm that Need for Speed: Most Wanted is indeed among TwitchTV’s on-site programming for E3, along with “TBA” titles from Ubisoft, Capcom and Warner Bros.
