No NFS In 2014, But A "Highly Innovative" Entry Is Coming
Man, doesn't feel right without expecting another Need for Speed.
As part of a recent report to investors (as cited by GameSpot), Electronic Arts has confirmed that for the first time since 2001, the iconic Need for Speed franchise will skip a year.
Developer Ghost Games is working on a new installment but they need more time, so it won't be ready until 2015. The team is being given an "extended development window," and studio general manager Marcus Nilsson said they're "already deep in development:"
"We are already deep in development on our next game and want to make this promise to you: we will listen to you. We're going to give you the game you've been asking for. It will be the game you deserve, but to do that will take us some time."
Nilsson further described the new NFS as "highly innovative" and that sounds encouraging. Not sure just how "innovative" you can get with a racing game but hey, we look forward to any fresh ambition.
