Need for Speed… Millionaire? Believe it or not, Criterion did indeed toy around with such a concept.

Criterion creative director Alex Ward revealed the canned idea on Twitter, which was an experiment that came about prior to Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit’s development.

Need for Speed: Millionaire would have allowed players to buy all available Supercars for you and your friends after winning a lottery. Ward said the game “was supposed to be Freeburn meets Top Gear challenges.” It was in a playable state, but Criterion only tried things out for about six months before moving on to Hot Pursuit.

Earlier today, Ward also shared a second abandoned concept: a new Burnout taking place along Route 66.
