On the official Need for Speed website, appeared a countdown that could lead to a reveal of the next title in the series. The countdown ends in just two days from now, on August 14.
The new Need for Speed will be revealed this month heading to the Gamescom 2019. As EA previously declared in a recent financial conference call.
“We’ll take the wraps off our new Need for Speed Game heading into Gamescom in the next few weeks.”
Some additional details on the next Need for Speed
Also, considering that this year marks the 25th anniversary of the series, the expectations are high. And the NFS team talked about this, and what fans can expect from the game, in a post in May.
“This year is a bit of a special one for NFS, too, as we are turning 25 years. We’ve had almost 25 years going fast, and we can’t wait to kick-start our 26th with the next NFS game.”
“And while we’ve had some great memories over those twenty-five years, we’re not here to look back and reminisce. We’ve got our eyes set firmly on the future. But even while focusing on the future – especially this year – we’ve also thought a lot about what NFS means to you, and perhaps more importantly what we hope it will mean as we move forward.”
“Cars naturally top the list. You could say that the cars and customization of NFS are the beating heart of what we do. Without either of these, NFS fails to exist as we know it. These two elements play a pivotal role in the series and are two aspects that we consider to be foundational, meaning they aren’t going anywhere because NFS wouldn’t exist without them.”
These words seem to indicate a partial return to the roots of the series. In particular to the Need for Speed Underground chapters, as many fans are demanding for years now. Especially after the disappointing reboot of the series in 2015 and the following Payback in 2017.
