In an interview, EA Sports boss Peter Moore says his division's plans for doing more NASCAR games have, like Ray Earl Don's No. 78 Chevy in turn four at Rockingham, blew up.
"There are no plans right now for NASCAR from EA," Moore told GameSpot. Moore said the people who worked on EA's NASCAR titles in the past had to be sent over to to work on another project. He adds:
Unfortunately … we had to make some tough trade-offs. We've had to redeploy some of those folks. A number of the NASCAR team has moved over now to EA Sports MMA, which will be shipping next year. [We're]still a huge fan of NASCAR, but no plans right now to develop any further games for NASCAR from EA Sports.
