24th Need for Speed title confirmed, official announcement coming August 14

Electronic Arts has confirmed a new Need for Speed game to be in development. This new title will be the 24th installment in the primary NFS series.

A few weeks ago rumors of a new Need for Speed game were in full flow but the ‘leaked’ cover art turned out to be fake, and was actually fan art. However this announcement comes directly from publishers EA themselves. The official announcement for the 24th Need for Speed title is set for August 14 at 7:00 a.m PT or 10:00 a.m ET. Other details like a release date or platforms are expected to be announced at the aforementioned date.

The game is however most likely set for a 2019 release as was teased back in May.

The last game in the series was Need for Speed Payback in 2017 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Payback received mixed reviews and disappeared from the sales charts after the first month.

Thoughts on the upcoming NFS title? What do you want from the game? I personally really want the series to go back to its Underground roots. Payback tried but the game was very empty from the inside. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
