Need for Speed 2019 Will Return to Racers vs Cops Mentality

Need for Speed

As part of its earnings call today, EA revealed that the new Need for Speed game aims, again, to return the series to its roots.

While discussing the publisher’s upcoming releases, which include Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and a new Plants vs Zombies, CEO Andrew Wilson said that a core goal with the new Need for Speed is “revitalizing the street racer vs. cops fantasy at the core of the franchise.”

Later, COO and CFO Blake Jorgensen mentioned expectations to sell approximately four million units based on previous series performance.

However, no further details are forthcoming about the racer, aside from a Q3 release window. Although confirming the existence of a new Need for Speed earlier this year, EA has yet to announce a developer, though Ghost Games (the team behind the last three console iterations) is the most likely choice.

The last game in the series to include police chases as a major gameplay feature was 2013’s Need for Speed Rivals, with the more recent two titles reducing the focus on escaping from police.
