It’s not long, but we do know that this will be the first Need For Speed game developed by Criterion since Need For Speed: Most Wanted in 2012. There have also been persistent rumors and leaks regarding the game. very retarded. Earlier this year, reports suggested the game would combine a “photo-realistic” art style with “anime elements”. A leaked three-second video showed a crashing car with doodles and textured effects appearing superimposed above the world.
This Need For Speed was originally slated for release last year, but was delayed while Criterion helped EA Dice complete work on Battlefield 2042 during the Covid-19 pandemic. The racing game is now apparently set to release before the end of 2022.
Although Criterion is known for some of the best games in the series, more recent Need For Speed games have had a rockier reception. The previously released game, 2019’s Need For Speed: Heat, was considered an improvement over the recent past, but still not a complete return to form.
EA, meanwhile, increased its share of the racing game genre by buying Codemasters last year.
