Just a few weeks ago, Need for Speed Heat was leaked by a retailer as the rumored name of the this year’s Need for Speed game. And today we have gotten confirmation via YouTube and Facebook that this is indeed the name EA will go with Need for Speed 2019!
The first confirmation of this was spotted by users on Reddit when they did a little digging on the title. They found that an external link leading from Facebook to YouTube contained the following text
And if this isn’t proof enough, using the YouTube thumbnail grabber site, BoingBoing, we can actually get a small sneak peak at the reveal trailer. The images don’t contain a lot in terms of any major reveal besides the name, though we can leave you to speculate as to what’s going on in the images down below.
Again, due to the quality of the images it’s hard to make out what exactly is going on, but if were to guess this does look like it’ll be a live-action trailer.
The full reveal is expected to happen tomorrow, and with gamescom also less than a week away so we do expect the title to make an appearance there, hopefully for gameplay purposes rather than showing off the reveal trailer again. In an odd occurrence, EA has deleted every mention of old Need for Speed games in the game’s YouTube channel and even social media.
