A New Need For Speed Racing Game Is Officially In Development

Good news for fans of souped-up cars travelling at high velocity - there's going to be a new title in the Need for Speed video game franchise.

While we've known for a while that the company behind the game was going to change from Ghost Games to Criterion Games, it's now been announced by EA that the next update for Need for Speed Heat will bring cross-play to the previous title, but will be the last one released.

That's because Criterion aims to stick 'full focus' onto the development of the next title in the long-running driving game series.

The announcement came from Matt Webster, the General Manager of Criterion, who said: "I wanted to let you all know how excited our team here in Guildford is to be back in the driver's seat of development for Need for Speed.

"I also wanted to share with you a glimpse of the road ahead, with our first checkpoint approaching quickly. The team has been hard at work to deliver an exciting feature to Need for Speed Heat, which will be in players' hands tomorrow!"

The statement continued: "As we at Criterion shift gears into the future with full focus on developing the next Need for Speed game, this will be the final update for Need for Speed Heat,
