New Need for Speed Title for 2013 Confirmed by EA

By   /   3 years ago

Earlier this week publisher EA confirmed that 2013 will indeed see to the release of a new Need for Speed title.

The firm noted that Criterion’s Need for Speed: Most Wanted reboot was highly successful and hence what better way to start a new year than by releasing something that provides an experience even greater than the reboot.

EA is seemingly taking a page out of Activision’s book with their Need for Speed franchise. Similar to how Activision has two of their studios come up with alternate Call of Duty titles, Ghost Studios will be taking up the 2013 Need for Speed slot.

Criterion is still EA’s lead developer on the racing series, but this year their supporting studio Ghost will take up the gauntlet. The studio resides in Gothenburg and is headed by former DICE employee Marcus Nilsson.

“I’ll bring a lot of DICE attitude to game development,” Nilsson commented. “DICE also have a culture where everyone can say what they think and have opinions, I want to have that here as well. But we’ll be our own; we will build Ghost and make games of high quality in our own way.”

A release timeline was hinted to be after summers. The window also suggests that this year’s Need for Speed title will be on the next-generation consoles, which are speculated to be announced in the next couple of months.
