Need for Speed will be taking a break for 2014 for the first time since the release of Need for Speed II back in 1997, EA has announced. Newly appointed Need for Speed custodian Ghost Games will be sinking its time into the next game, but it won't surface until 2015.
"We're delivering a high-quality experience for Need for Speed players next year," EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed during a financial call earlier today.
"We are already deep in development on our next game and want to make this promise to you: we will listen to you. We’re going to give you the game you’ve been asking for. It will be the game you deserve, but to do that will take us some time," Ghost Games' Executive Producer and GM Marcus Nilsson writes on the game's official site.
"We’ve made the decision to not release a Need for Speed in 2014, so we can work towards a highly innovative Need for Speed in 2015. An experience built on a foundation we know you’ll greatly look forward to."
The developer will be looking for input and feedback from the community to help shape the next Need for Speed game, due to launch in 2015. Vroom.
