While there’s a new Need for Speed game coming out later this year, that doesn’t mean we ‘ll see a new one in 2016 and see it come back as an annual franchise.
In an interview, EA COO Peter Moore admits that they want to see how this Need for Speed reboot does first before committing to a new one next year.
I don’t know if it will be, it’s an interesting question. We will see how this game goes. You can only bring it out annually if you can come up with real fresh ideas. It is the same thing we’ve been going through with golf. It is golf… is there enough innovation and creativity that you can go in there with and do something different every year?
This year’s Need for Speed reboot of the franchise is being handled by Ghost Games and will be out in November for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. You can check out how the game looks in this trailer.
