The Next Need For Speed Will Apparently Launch This Year On New Generation Consoles Only

Industry insider and frequent leaker Jeff Grubb is at it again, this time speaking on his Grubbsnax show on Giantbomb about the next iteration in the long-running Need for Speed franchise.

While the show itself is paywalled, VGC has kindly transcribed the important bit, where Grubb claims that the new Need for Speed game will be launching this November and for the new generation of consoles only. No word on what that means for PC players, but it dashes any hope for owners of a PS4 or Xbox One:

“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.”

Grubb also apparently suggests that the game will take place in Miami.

The most recent Need for Speed game was a remaster of Hot Pursuit in 2020, which we reviewed and scored a 6.5/10.
