After numerous confirmations that a new Need for Speed game is coming out this year, EA has finally kickstarted what appears to be the official reveal! Today, EA has started the Need for Speed 2019 countdown, which I assume will show us gameplay, the official title, and more for this new racing game.
Checking the website, it only shows the Need for Speed logo and a countdown ending on Wednesday. That’s basically it, no title, no tease, no nothing. Of course, if the recent leak we posted is to be believed, the Need for Speed 2019 game will be titled “Need for Speed Heat,” and will be released on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Given how we’re already in August, EA has a lot of ground to catch up in terms of hyping this year’s racer. While the publisher confirmed it won’t showcase the new Need for Speed game at this year’s E3, the chances of us seeing the game at gamescom next week is almost a lock — unless, y’know, they’re not a fan of players looking forward to their games.
What do you want to see from this year’s Need for Speed? Stay tuned for the full reveal on Wednesday.
