EA is rebooting Need for Speed later this year

New, 58 comments

Need for Speed is back — but this time it's going back to basics. After going through a bit of an identity crisis following a number of spin-offs and sequels, which tackled everything from street racing to simulation-style driving, EA says it's rebooting the series with a new game due to launch later this year. Simply called Need for Speed, the game will feature "deep customization, authentic urban car culture, a nocturnal open world, and an immersive narrative to pull players deep into the game," according to the publisher. That's about all we know about the game right now — it's being made by Ghost Games, the Swedish studio behind Need for Speed: Rivals — but expect to hear more about it at E3 next month. The new Need for Speed will be launching this fall on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
