EA has made a ton of fans happy with the launch of Need For Speed Heat. With the game being out for less than a year, EA set its sights on the development of yet another Need For Speed title.
Matt Webster, the General Manager at Criterion Games announced the news over a blog post where he highlighted the brief highlights of what to expect from the NFS franchise moving forward. He highlighted that Need For Speed: Heat would finally have cross-play support across all platforms beginning on June the 9th, requiring users to install the latest update. With the update, players on consoles and PCs alike would be able to tear down the streets moving forward.
At Criterion, we’ve always believed that games are better with friends. We don’t want your platform of choice to be a barrier for that experience. So we’re thrilled to let you all know that on June 9, Need for Speed Heat will be the first EA title to offer cross-play, meaning that players – regardless of their platform – can jump into Palm City together as one, united community.Matt Webster, Criterion Games
Matt Webster continued by announcing that this would be the very last update coming to the game, moving forward.
With Need For Speed Heat being a unique, yet somewhat nostalgic vibes back to the franchise, there’s no telling what EA’s next game has in store.
As we move down the year, we personally can’t wait to see what EA has in store. Hopefully EA announces the game or reveals details regarding this mysterious sequel as the new consoles from both, Microsoft and Sony begin to roll in.
