There have always been two types of Need for Speed games. Some are action packed arcades and some have simulated gameplay. If you NFS fans out there, are waiting for the next edition of the franchise, you will need to wait for an year.
EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson announced that a new NFS game is in the works and will be released in the financial year of 2018. That means, the game will be out by march of next year.
The reason behind the late release is because EA has decided to have an extended development cycle to focus on innovation. I’m not sure what he meant by ‘innovation’. It could be anything from improvised graphics and animation, to changes in locality and storyline.
The game is yet untitled.
