New Need For Speed Game Coming in 2018


Need For Speed is perhaps one of the greatest racing franchises of all times. perhaps its best known installment’s are the Underground titles which appealed to both casual as well as serious gamers. Need for speed revolutionized the racing genre as for the first time a racing game had a definitive story , and wasn’t just about getting from start to finish.

Now it seems we may be getting a new game in 2018.As during a earnings call today EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson talked about the release of the new NFS title amongst other things. Here is what he had to say.

We’re also excited to have a new Need for Speed title launching in FY 2018.

We have given the game an extended development cycle to focus on innovation, and the Need for Speed team is pushing the boundaries of action driving with what we believe is the most exciting and best looking Need for Speed game we’ve ever produced.

previous entries in the Need For Speed franchise received a lukewarm response at best , and it will be interesting to see what the new title has in store for us. One of the main reasons why underground and to a certain extent Carbon were such a success was due to the fact that the game’s had a really solid in game story going on for them, and it also meshed well with the gameplay.

I remember playing those titles during my teenage years and the main selling point was the idea of being a sort of an all action driving stuntman, and living out your fantasies through a videogame. Recent editions have foregone this formula and this is what has led to the decline of the franchise.

So do you believe that the new Need For Speed game will go back to its roots or will it be another dud of a game? let us know by commenting in the comments section below.

    It’ll be another Crapfest just like 2015 reboot , just as Rivals , Criterion Mostwanted ,Hotpursuit . You would think Andrew House would listen to Need for Speed fans instead of investors but he Dont . 14 games out of 23 prove him wrong. Out of 23 titles only 9 worth playing is sad. what EA need to do get rid of “open world maps” “get rid of live action cutscene ” go back to old-fashioned NFS style with frostbye engine . make cop cars flip over after crashing like in criterion Hotpursuit , That was beautiful.

    It would be a Miracle if Andrew House listen to gamers instead of investors this time.
    I bet 10 year paycheck it’ll be another Crapfest with fake hype at e3 . Marcus Nilsson from ghost games walk on stage with fake smile lying about New game. show some Clips with cops being aggressive . play the game at home when release , cops whimppy as in 2015 reboot need for Speed cops . if this New title dont bring back NFS to old-fashioned NFS style i will play Project cars,Drive Club, Gran Torismo Sport.
