Ghost Games has confirmed that the next Need for Speed won’t arrive until 2017.
It looks like the Need for Speed franchise won’t return to its original annual release schedule. Writing on the official Need for Speed site, the team released an infographic detailing all the things you, the Need for Speed community did while playing their latest game, Need for Speed. At the end, they confirmed that they’ve learned a lot that will help them as they develop the next game in the franchise for a 2017 release.
“We are now building upon the foundations that have been laid with Need for Speed and delivering our next game in 2017.”
The team also confirmed that the SpeedList update is the last free content update for Need for Speed. There is always the possibility Ghost Games is developing more paid content for Need for Speed. A nice, meaty expansion this holiday season could be just the ticket to keep players invested in Need for Speed until 2017. Until then we’ll just have to be patient.
