Need For Speed is one of the most popular titles for EA and the company has confirmed the next entry in the franchise. During the earnings call for the company, CEO Andrew Wilson talked about the new Need For Speed title.
Wilson confirmed that the new Need For Speed title will be launching in the fiscal year 2018 which ends on March 31, 2018, and also noted that the development team is focusing on innovation. He added that the new Need For Speed will be the best looking Need For Speed the company has ever produced.
We’re also excited to have a new Need for Speed title launching in FY 2018.
We have given the game an extended development cycle to focus on innovation, and the Need for Speed team is pushing the boundaries of action driving with what we believe is the most exciting and best looking Need for Speed game we’ve ever produced.
During the conference, EA also confirmed FIFA 18 and noted that the story mode will be coming back along with Madden NFL franchise will be transitioning to the Frostbite engine.
We will continue to drive innovation and competition in our EA SPORTS franchises. FIFA 18 will build on the foundation we created with story mode this year, bringing players back to The Journey with Season 2, featuring new characters and new storylines. Our development team in Vancouver is delivering deeply innovative new experiences across this year’s game, including in Ultimate Team, and creating the most emotionally immersive and connected FIFA we have ever produced.
Previous entry in the Need For Speed franchise launched in 2015 with a lukewarm reception, so it will be interesting to see the innovation Wilson is talking about and the return of action driving genre as not much of it has been seen in recent titles.
