Need for Speed Getting Rebooted This Fall



Need for Speed is getting a reboot, Electronic Arts announced this morning. The new game, simply titled “Need for Speed,” will take place in a “nocturnal open-world”.


Need for Speed, EA say, will feature car customization, “authentic urban car culture,” and there’s mention of some sort of story, too. The game is being developed by Ghost Games.


“Need for Speed is one of the most iconic names in gaming, and we’re returning it to greatness in this reboot,” said Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer at Ghost Games.


“Pulling on our 20 years of history, and then taking a year out from releasing a game, we are making the game we’ve always wanted to. We’re listening to the fans and delivering an experience that will capture their imagination and unleash their passion for cars and speed.”


Need for Speed will be released this Fall for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
