According to the latest rumours, the next installment in the Need for Speed series will be announced very soon, a first revelation in anticipation of a release set for this month of December 2022, and more precisely the 2. The info comes from the famous insider journalist Tom Henderson which specifies that the announcement is “imminent” for this new title, the images of which leaked on the web exactly a month ago.
Nothing surprising that said since since the first rumors, the known working title is “NfS 2022” and its date has always been announced for this year. The same Henderson had also counted on November in his last declarations during the summer, but Jeff Grubb had instead aimed for December. Besides, we don’t know much else about the game, except that it may take a more “cartoon” tone with a fictional city similar to Chicago.
For this opus, it is Criterion who will be in charge of creatingwith one notable change: the former studio of MotorStormCodemasters Cheshire, has been integrated into the teams for double the workforce on this new racing title. In addition to the leak of the release date, the journalist finally specifies that the announcement trailer will last three minutes and will include a soundtrack composed by rapper A$AP Rocky. The game should be released on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series only.
