In their latest Under the Hood blog post, developer Ghost Games confirmed that they’re working on releasing a new Need for Speed in 2017, and content update support for 2015’s Need for Speed has come to an end:
The SpeedList update will be our last free content update for this game. Make sure you’re still earning bonus REP, taking advantage of discounts or earning some extra in-game money from all the upcoming Community Events. The next one starts this weekend, so hit the streets of Ventura Bay and earn yourself an extra $1,000 in-game credits from all Drag Events. Also, keep taking your personalization to the next level and build up your decal collection by completing the Daily Challenges, and with more than 150 on offer, there’s definitely something for every ride.
We are now building upon the foundations that have been laid with Need for Speed and delivering our next game in 2017.
They add that your feedback (through Twitter, Facebook, or their forums) will help shape the future of Need for Speed, and they’ll allow community members to visit the studio to offer feedback on the next game.
Looking back at last year’s Need for Speed, Ghost Games revealed that over 9.8 billion REP points have been collected, over 35 million Snapshots have been taken, over 10 million Drag Races have been completed, 52 million Eddie’s Challenge Events have been beaten, $2.5 trillion in-game cash has been earned, people have spend 950 million minutes customizing cars, more than 700,000 wraps have been shared, and more than 13 million wraps have been downloaded.
What do you hope to see from the future of Need for Speed?
