EA is getting ready to reveal something about the Need for Speed franchise. A countdown timer has popped up on the EA website that will end in about 2-days time. When that timer expires, it is likely that Electronic Arts will reveal what’s next for the driving series as they confirmed earlier this year that a game is in development and that it would be released before March 2020.
What’s next for the Need for Speed franchise
It’s been some time since a new Need for Speed game has been released, and the last few entries in the series haven’t been great. Electronic Arts had released a new Need for Speed game each year from 2002 until 2013 before fatigue set in for the franchise. Then after a couple of year breaks they released the Need for Speed reboot and Need for Speed: Payback, which were both received with mixed reviews from critics and consumers.
Can EA turn the Need for Speed franchise around?
Need for Speed: Payback was probably one of the worst Need for Speed games in the series with a focus on micro-transactions and a very grind-heavy progression system.
We won’t need to wait too long for the reveal of the new Need for Speed. The timer countdown is set to end on Wednesday, August 12th.
