During Electronic Arts’ quarterly financial conference call, Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson talked about the next Need for Speed title, coming in fiscal year 2018 (which means before March 31st, 2018).
Wilson mentioned that the team is focusing on innovation, and that Electronic Arts believes that it’s the most exciting and best looking Need for Speed game that the company ever produced.
“We’re also excited to have a new Need for Speed title launching in FY 2018.
We have given the game an extended development cycle to focus on innovation, and the Need for Speed team is pushing the boundaries of action driving with what we believe is the most exciting and best looking Need for Speed game we’ve ever produced.”
It’s ll certainly be interesting to see what kind of “innovation” Wilson is talking about. The action driving genre hasn’t seen all that much of it in quite a while, so hopefully the development team will deliver.
