Electronic Arts have not yet officially announced the new Need for Speed, merely confirming that a new game in the series is under development and will be released in late 2019. But when exactly will it be unveiled? Very early.
The right opportunity to see Need for Speed in action will be the Gamescom in Cologne, scheduled for 20 to 24 August. Electronic Arts have confirmed that it will be present at the fair and for the occasion, it will bring the new Need for Speed, as well as a second unannounced game that should be Plants against Zombie Garden Warfare 3, along with Plants vs Zombies 3 for Mobile.
The next episode of the EA racing series could be called Need for Speed Heat, at least according to the leak of an Austrian retailer who has included the game in its price lists with this name. The release was confirmed by the end of 2019, but the launch date was not confirmed by the publisher.
Many expected the reveal of Need for Speed at E3 in Los Angeles but on this occasion, the company preferred to highlight productions such as Apex Legends and Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, the latter arriving in November as the spearhead of the lineup Christmas of Electronic Arts.
