The new ‘Need for Speed’ will arrive in 2022, but the Xbox One and PS4 versions were removed, according to a report

According to information released by Jeff Grubb , the next ‘Need for Speed’ will be released in November . However, it would only come out for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S and PC, being a first step by EA and Criterion Games to produce games exclusively designed for the current generation of consoles.

Three years have passed since a ‘Need for Speed’ has been released, because during 2021 EA designated Criterion Games as a support studio for the development of ‘Battlefield 2042’, delaying the production of a title of this racing franchise that was earmarked for 2020.

Another of the revelations that Grubb mentioned was that the location for this title will be Miami , without going into detail about this. The possibility that this game is not cross-generational could mean that Criterion focused on developing it to take full advantage of the technologies that the recent generation of consoles can offer.

The above could fit like a glove for EA to compete with the enormous success that ‘Forza Horizon 5’ had and take advantage of the setback that ‘Gran Turismo 7‘ had in its first weeks of release. Meanwhile, we will have to wait for an official statement from the developers.
