While EA has not made any formal announcements regarding a new Need for Speed game, we now have our first official confirmation that one is being developed, and which studios are involved.

Over on Twitter, the official Codemasters Twitter account announced that a new Need for Speed game is being developed by Criterion Games and Codemasters Cheshire. Adding more sauce to the news, the two studios are forming a new Criterion studio with two location hubs.

We can confirm Criterion Games and the development team at Codemasters Cheshire are officially coming together to create the future of @NeedforSpeed, forming one Criterion studio with two location hubs. [1/3]

This integration builds off the close partnership the two studios have developed over the past few months. [2/3]

Sharing common values and similar cultures, we strongly believe unifying the huge wealth of expertise across both teams will help us to deliver the best racing experiences we can for our players. [3/3]

No gameplay details or even an official title has been revealed, but at least we know the game is in safe hands with the two studios. There’s still no further details on when we’ll see a reveal, but I gather, sometime soon given this confirmation. What we do know is, the game is set to be released in Q3 fiscal year 2023 according to EA’s latest report.
