New Need for Speed game won’t be present at EA Play 2019, still planned for release this year

With E3 2019 – and EA Play 2019 – just around the corner, a lot of players were wondering whether Electronic Arts would unveil the next part in the Need for Speed series during its gaming event. However, it appears that this won’t be the case as the new Need for Speed game won’t be present at EA Play 2019.

According to the NFS dev team, this new Need for Speed game is still planned for a 2019 release, however it is currently concentrating  on the quality of the game instead of promotional events.

“Are you going to hear more about the next NFS title? Yes. Is it being released this year? Yes. Will we be doing anything in June? No. It’s as simple as that, but we wanted to give you a heads up before you started asking “where are you?” Our goal is to deliver a truly memorable high-speed entry into the 25 years of NFS, rather than a series of promotional events. The game matters most – a sentiment we bet you share with us.”

It will be interesting to see what the Need for Speed 2019 game is all about, and whether it will be able to recapture the magic of the franchise.

Our guess is that, similarly to pretty much all of EA’s latest titles, this new Need for Speed game will be also powered by the Frostbite Engine, so here is hoping that it won’t be plagued by the same CPU CPU performance/optimization issues of its predecessor.

Stay tuned for more!
