Three Fields Entertainment, a gaming studio formed by Criterion founders Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry, is currently working on two new titles and hopes to release both "in early 2015," the company announced via Twitter.
Accompanying the news was the announcement of the company's latest hire, former Criterion chief technical officer Paul Ross. Ross, who worked at Criterion for nearly 18 years, will act as Three Fields' director and CTO as well. His work includes games such as Need for Speed: Most Wanted (pictured above), Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and Burnout Paradise.
