Electronic Arts plans to launch a new installment of the Need for Speed saga later this year, which, although it has not yet been named, has already defined its thematic bet well. A very far from what was seen in the last deliveries.
The Need for Speed 2019 is going to bet on the fantasy of police and thieves, and the idea is to “revitalize that formula as the central core of the complete series”, according to the EA executive . Something interesting, since we had been seeing the franchise tried to find its place with a Need for Speed of 2015 focused solely on street racing and with a Need for Speed Payback that bet, instead, to tell a story of robberies Games that, in fact, did not convince either criticism or public.
This year’s video game, which will presumably appear on PC, PS4 and Xbox One (and is to see if on Nintendo Switch), would be closer to classic series such as Need for Speed Hot Pursuit or Need for Speed Most Wanted. Some of the favorite episodes of fans.
At the moment the title has not official release date, nor do we know if it will continue to be developed by Ghost Games as the latest installments. The only thing we know for sure is that there is a new Need for Speed announced, and that is one of EA’s strengths to revitalize its catalog.
