Need for Speed is on the way this year – yes, we’re getting another one. It’s still unclear whether or not it’s a brand new game or a remaster of a previous title, but what is clear is that we won’t be seeing it at E3 this year.

On a fresh post on EA’s “Answers HQ” blog, Ben Walke, global community manager at EA DICE, wrote the following:

Are you going to hear more about the next NFS title? Yes. Is it being released this year? Yes. Will we be doing anything in June? No. It’s as simple as that, but we wanted to give you a heads up before you started asking “where are you?” Our goal is to deliver a truly memorable high-speed entry into the 25 years of NFS, rather than a series of promotional events. The game matters most – a sentiment we bet you share with us.  

Clearly we are getting a new entry into the popular racing sim this year, we just don’t know when. According to Mr. Walke, however, it’s shaping up to be a memorable one.
