In case you're still hoping for a brand-new Burnout game (that is, if people are still alive), its time for a huge dose of reality check. Since Alex Ward and his employees has left Criterion Games, the Burnout franchise has been left in shambles and has long since forgotten. Even with the recent release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the devs sure as hell aren't going near those two consoles and had since called it quits on their beloved franchise back in 2001, silently even. As of 2016, there has been no announcement regarding a brand-new, maybe rebooted, Burnout game, but it never happened on E3. At all. Sure you have Burnout Paradise as backwards compatibility for the Xbox One, but sadly, that was not enough to keep the already-dead franchise going. In fact, it came short. And it had already marked the end of an era for the Burnout franchise. Unless you're still assuming that a new Burnout is underway, its time to wake up and face the facts that the franchise has long been dead since their release of Burnout Crash!, which was THE final Burnout game for the series and will never be revived for next-gen consoles. You could email Criterion Games or Alex Ward and beg either of the two to revive the franchise we all love, but in the end, either their responses will be silent, or they will respond with a "Burnout is dead, so don't bother pestering us to revive a dead franchise ever again", or any similar response to it.

Sorry to say this, but the cold, hard truth is there. Sure the Burnout games will live on forever, but the harsh reality, is that the franchise is forever gone and they expect us to move on to a newer, better franchise. Next-gen consoles included. In the end, the road ends here for Burnout. And the "Wrecked!" message you'd find in Burnout 3: Takedown, is permanent, with no respawn, and definitely no restarts.
