It appears that Electronic Arts will officially reveal the next part in the Need for Speed franchise in two days. The publisher has added a counter on the game’s official page that ends on August 14th. As such, we can safely assume that EA will announce Need for Speed 2019 on that day.
To be more precise, the counter will end on Wednesday August 14th 2019 at 15:00:00 GMT+0100. Unfortunately, the source code of the web page does not provide any additional details about the new NFS game.
From what we know so far, Ghost Games is working on this new NFS game. Moreover, Electronic Arts plans to release this new racing game in 2019.
According to an earlier leak, Need for Speed 2019 may be called Need for Speed Heat.
It will be interesting to see whether this new NFS game will be worth the wait or not. The last Need for Speed game was Need for Speed Payback that came out in 2017. To be honest, I didn’t really like Payback as its driving mechanics were awful.
Here is hoping that Ghost Games will focus on making the game fun, instead of trying to offer a “blockbuster” movie-like racing game.
Stay tuned for more!
