We know a new Need for Speed is coming this year, we just don’t know when it is coming. Further, we haven’t seen anything of it. Many suspected this would change at the E3 2019 during EA Play, but it’s not that way. EA Play is poised and predicted to take place on June 8 and June 9, but there will be no Need for Speed there. Despite the game being slated for a fall 2019 release, it won’t be at the show in any sort of capacity.
News on Need For Speed by Ben Walke
The news comes way of EA Dice global community lead by Ben Walke, who had the following to say about the game:
“Are you going to hear anything more about the next NFS title?” said Walke. “Yes. Is this being released this year? Yes. Will we be doing anything in J the No. It’s as simple as that, but we wanted to give you a heads up before you start asking that ‘where are you?’ Our goal is to deliver a truly memorable high-speed entry into the 25 years of the NFS, rather than a series of promotional events. The game matters the most – a sentiment we bet you will like to share with us.”
When will we hear about the game?
As we can see, Ben Walke more or less confirms we won’t be hearing about the game at all next month, which begs the question: when will we hear about it? Who really knows. Unfortunately, Walke doesn’t divulge any details in this said regard. However, if the game is going to release this fall, the details will need to be arrived sooner rather than later. That said, while the community manager doesn’t provide any concrete reveal details, he does tease it will be revealed this August at the Gamescon.
“We’re building an amazing game that we can’t wait to show off to people, and the next time we talk, we’ll be packing our bags and heading south for the full unveiling. We’ll see you then,” said Walke.
Now, the DICE is located in Sweden.The Gamescom takes place in Germany. That’s south. Beyond this, the only event they could be packing their bags for would be the Paris Games Week in October, but surely this is way too late to reveal a game releasing in the fall. So it looks like Gamescom will be where it is revealed.
