EA Preps A Next-Gen Need For Speed?
We can always use more Need for Speed.
Although Need for Speed: Most Wanted is slated to hit on October 30, Electronic Arts is already looking forward to the next installment in the esteemed racing franchise.
Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader, we turn our attention to EA's Gothenburg's website, where they're looking for people to work on a brand new Need for Speed entry. The message on the main page reads:
"Would you like to be a part of EA? Would you like to work on a game in the Need for Speed franchise? You now have the opportunity to become a part of EA Gothenburg and fulfill those two wishes."
There are no less than 16 positions available, and perhaps the most interesting part is that EA Garthenburg is preparing for the "new generation of games," which sort of implies that this fresh NFS effort will be for next-gen consoles. Now is about the right time to begin staffing up for such a project, as a variety of rumors have hinted at a 2013 launch for either the new Xbox or PlayStation (or both).
Either way, NFS is definitely one of those titles we can't leave behind. It's just too iconic to die.
