EA and Ghost Games have confirmed that a new Need for Speed game won’t be speeding onto consoles and PC this year. This is the first year since 2001 that Need for Speed has skipped a release.
Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer and GM at Ghost Games made the announcement on the Need for Speed website. “We’ve made the decision to not release a Need for Speed in 2014, so we can work towards a highly innovative Need for Speed in 2015. An experience built on a foundation we know you’ll greatly look forward to.
“We are already deep in development on our next game and want to make this promise to you: we will listen to you. We’re going to give you the game you’ve been asking for. It will be the game you deserve, but to do that will take us some time.”
Ghost Games is looking to fans to help develop Need for Speed 2015. The goal at the studio is to reach out to fans for input on future gameplay and features they want in the next game. Maybe Need for Speed skipping this year isn’t such a bad thing after all if we end up getting the racing game of our dreams.
