Racing fans are hyped for a new Need for Speed and want it to be top notch!

In case anyone missed it, the last game in the franchise arrived in 2020 which was a remaster of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. Apart from that, there’s been a mobile title as well from EA called NFS No Limits. But it’s been a very long time since a major installment was launched for the hardcore lovers of the iconic series.

On top of it, many of the players’ trust in EA has dwindled due to its inconsistency in producing well-performing video games. A prime example of that is the Battlefield 2042 entry. It was one of the most awaited releases of 2021 but upon its debut, the reactions from critics as well players were mostly negative.

Battlefield 2042 resulted in a lot of criticism from the side of the fans against EA.

However, now the publisher might have a good chance of winning back fans’ trust. And that’s due to the fact that another memorable franchise from EA will soon receive a new addition.

Recently, Codemasters Cheshire revealed on Twitter that it will collaborate with Criterion Games for the next mainstream Need for Speed game. It also added that “unifying the huge wealth of expertise across both teams will help us to deliver the best racing experiences we can for our players.”‘

Well, that seems quite promising coming from the developer itself. And it looks like players themselves are very much curious and excited to get a new Need for Speed. On Twitter, the majority of the fans showed a keen interest in the upcoming collaboration between Codemasters and Criterion.
