There won't be a new Need for Speed this year

The series could use some breathing room

During Electronic Arts' fourth quarter fiscal 2014 earnings call, CEO Andrew Wilson said that the publisher won't release a new installment of Need for Speed in 2014.

At the very least, Need for Speed: Rivals developer Ghost Games' new title will arrive next year. Speaking to IGN, series executive producer Marcus Nilsson said "We've decided to take the time to build the game we really want to build in the next fiscal year.

"Looking at where the racing market now is, and looking at the Need for Speed brand, we see a pretty clear strategy of what we need to achieve. And to achieve that, we need time."

Well, good. It's an attitude I'd wish we see more frequently for established franchises like this.
