Their wording on the reddit post has me thinking it might be future speeds.

We’ve got our eyes set firmly on the future. But even while focusing on the future – especially this year – we’ve also thought a lot about what NFS means to you, and perhaps more importantly what we hope it will mean as we move forward.

nothing beats announing a game through EA Help forums :grinning-face-with-smiling-eyes:
Hold up . . . we are back!

What have we been up to? Well, as you can imagine, we’re in the business of making games, and Need for Speed games at that. You can also probably guess where this is going, but for those who haven’t– a new Need for Speed game will be releasing later in 2019!

This year is a bit of a special one for NFS, too, as we are turning 25 years. We’ve had almost 25 years going fast, and we can’t wait to kick-start our 26th with the next NFS game.

And while we’ve had some great memories over those twenty-five years, we’re not here to look back and reminisce. We’ve got our eyes set firmly on the future. But even while focusing on the future – especially this year – we’ve also thought a lot about what NFS means to you, and perhaps more importantly what we hope it will mean as we move forward.

Cars naturally top the list. You could say that the cars and customization of NFS are the beating heart of what we do. Without either of these, NFS fails to exist as we know it. These two elements play a pivotal role in the series and are two aspects that we consider to be foundational, meaning they aren’t going anywhere because NFS wouldn’t exist without them.

But NFS is also the culmination of many different aspects, and there’s a special essence that appears when all these aspects come together at a very high quality, an essence that helps create that unique NFS feeling. You could say this essence is our DNA, and it’s exactly what we’re injecting straight into our next project.

Tradition, and our above note about a new game later this year, dictates that this is the time when you’ll be eagerly hitting F5 on our Social Media channels, waiting for that first detailed sign of something new, for that first teaser to drop. But let’s hold fire on that for now.

Because traditions are all well and good, but they can also be broken, and new ones forged. Just because we’ve done something one way for the last few years, doesn’t mean we should continue to do so.

Are you going to hear more about the next NFS title? Yes. Is it being released this year? Yes. Will we be doing anything in June? No. It’s as simple as that, but we wanted to give you a heads up before you started asking “where are you?” Our goal is to deliver a truly memorable high-speed entry into the 25 years of NFS, rather than a series of promotional events. The game matters most – a sentiment we bet you share with us.

With that, know that we’re here, we’re building an amazing game that we can’t wait to show off, and the next time we talk, we’ll be packing our bags and heading south for the full unveiling. We’ll see you then.

This all sounds a little like someone in the office has just realised it's the 25th anniversary and it might be an idea to do something with it but they've spent the budget so they're using the Coffee Club money to market it.



Need For Speed is 25 this year! yay.

The remake of Hot Pursuit was fantastic and I just went through Payback the other day and I had much more fun with it than I expected. I'm eager to see what they do next considering how much better Payback was over that FMV game from 2015 (which I also completed in the last couple weeks).

I'm not so sure what the essence of need for speed is anymore. I suppose I'm clearly out of touch, since I can't help but think back to road & track presents need for speed.

Unrelated, but I recently played NFS 2015 through Origin Access, and I'm livid at this game because it could have been great (despite being on Frostbite) but because of many bad/odd design decisions and ALWAYS ONLINE crap, we got a bad mess of a game.

same ... that's why Porsche Unleashed was the last good one .... after that they started their shitty experiments with street racing, tuning, and all that other crap
