According to Insider Gaming, the new installment of the series will be called Need For Speed Unbound. The game will be unveiled via a short 90-second trailer. The report also said NFS Unbound will release on December 2, 2022.
Need For Speed Unbound is rumored to be more multiplayer-focused than the past games in the series. The last NFS game, Need For Speed Heat, had very basic multiplayer options. The new game will reportedly have a multiplayer feature called “meetups” where players will be able to race against each other in different locations around the map.
The title was originally going to be revealed in July. But for unknown reasons, it got delayed to August and then again to September.
Some noticeable changes over on the Need For Speed’s Twitter account further authenticates the rumor. The account now features a new header photo along with a new NFS logo as its profile picture.
Need for Speed Unbound will be arriving for PC, PlayStation5, and Xbox Series X/S. The game will not be releasing on older generations of consoles.
