Need for Speed skips 2014; first year without one in over a decade
EA reveals it won't put out a new Need for Speed until 2015 to allow time for an "extended development window."
When you think of franchises released annually, you might only think of games like Madden and Call of Duty, but a new Need for Speed has come out each and every year for even longer than Call of Duty has existed. Now, for the first time since 2001, Need for Speed will skip a year as developer Ghost Games takes its time in creating the newest entry in the series.
As part of EA's report to investors today, the company revealed Need for Speed developer Ghost Games is being given time for an "extended development window" to work on the next game in the series, which will not be released until next year.
