Electronic Arts present a new Need for speed This next Wednesday. The North American editor has enabled a web page in which you can see the acronym of this veteran series of driving games and a countdown that will end this August 14 at 4:00 p.m. (European Central Time), at which time this new title will be released.
In its latest shareholder report, EA has already reported on its plans to bring the new Need for Speed to the fair Gamescom Cologne, which will be held from August 19 to 24 and, therefore, fits the announcement scheduled for this Wednesday. In fact, Need for Speed was not present during the last edition of Los Angeles E3 as usual.
The last installment of this franchise was Need for Speed Payback, released in 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. In that case, the game was developed by Ghost Games, but did not reach the level of previous chapters of the series.
Need for Speed has more than a quarter century of existence and from the beginning it has been a driving franchise that has based its formula more on the search for fun, police chases and spectacle than on simulation and realism.
