Need for Speed has been a highly selling, evolving, and entertaining game for gamers all over the world. There have been several versions of NFS over the years as EA Games and Criterion have managed to keep things fresh with the launch of every version. Since 2015, it is good to see that the creators are taking their time in launching new versions. It used to be one game in a year, or sometimes 2 within the same year over a decade ago. But now, one game is being launched over the course of 2 years.
Need for Speed Heat was launched in 2019 and the response on the game has been quite amazing. People have loved what Criterion did with the game and now, they’re giving us more. It’d be interesting to see what new gaming modes, challenges and cars will be added into the game. The fact that it is an open world online racing game is its biggest USP.
Here’s a part of what Matt Webster, General Manager of Criterion Games said while making the announcement of a new NFS game:
“As we at Criterion shift gears into the future with full focus on developing the next Need for Speed game, this will be the final update for Need for Speed Heat. Since the launch of Need for Speed Heat and as players continue to tear it up in Palm City, we’re listening to what you love about this experience, and what you all believe could be even better. With these insights, we have a terrific foundation to create the most expressive, most socially connected, action-packed game yet for Need for Speed fans and beyond.”
We should get this new Need for Speed Game by the next year if not 2022. The name and the release date of the game will be announced in the future. As for Need for Speed Heat, it is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with a new update having been launched today.
