This year’s new Need for Speed game is reportedly now current-gen only

Speaking on his premium Giantbomb show Grubbsnax (paywalled, transcribed by VGC), VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb said EA plans to release the latest title in the long-running racing franchise this holiday.

“Need for Speed is still coming this year… that’s true, that game should be coming in November,” Grubb said. “If you are a Need for Speed fan who has bought a next-gen console, here’s some news; it’s next-gen only. They are shifting to next-gen only.”

While Grubb didn’t mention plans for a PC version of the game, he claimed the title could take place in Miami, although he said he was not certain.

Lies about why mods reply ban and warn me.
The only EA game that i played in this generation, or at least tried to, was the NFS game, i think name's was Porsuit, downloaded it from PS+ free games, around 66 GB or something, and got an error message and the game didn't launch... I mean no comment.

Racing games already look photorealistic. It's gonna take more than graphics to get people to play this one.
Yeah, graphics isn't an issue, its the gameplay. Heat was decent but NFS games are still a step behind in terms of how good they have potential to be. I wish they would be more like Burnout.
 
To be honest every game releasing in 2022 should be current gen only.

I wonder how GT7 would be if it was made only for PS5..
Likely, almost exactly the same. The game started as PS5 only. The PS4 decision and development came later as it became clear PS5s would not meet demand
 
When you wanna thumbs up a post but realize the source is Jeff Grubb ☹...

Hot Pursuit 2 was awesome back on the PS2, spent a lot of time with that one. Was probably the best arcade racer on it for me until Burnout 3 and Outrun 2 C2C.

Criterion maybe ?
Criterion is dead, all the good parts of it jumped ship eons ago and tried to remake Burnout with no budget.

NFS is going to need a MASSIVE overhaul.

I can't believe Giantbomb sank so low to allow that shitbucket Grubb onto it's team. That site has been sunk for years anway.
