Although it appears that July will once again be the time when the business unveils many of its titles like Need for Speed, EA indicated earlier in the year that it wouldn’t be holding one of its annual EA Play Live events this year and would instead be making its reveals and announcements elsewhere.
Tom Henderson, a well-known source, recently stated that the eagerly anticipated Skate revival, simply titled “skate,” would be completely revealed in July. It also appears that EA will also announce a few other titles at the same time. Henderson believes that the upcoming Need for Speed will be one of the titles the firm announces and releases in July in a new story on Exputer.
Intriguingly, Henderson’s revelation also supports information from earlier this year that the game’s aesthetics would include a stylized and anime look. Henderson also notes that the character designs of the game are reminiscent of the TV series The Boondocks.
Additionally, “meetups” will reportedly be a key component of the game. These will enable users to connect with one another throughout the map and start races on courses that, in Henderson’s words, have been dubbed as “unique.” Although it’s unclear what kind of a part trains might play in races, the game’s map is said to also have a significant train track running through it.
According to the insider, the game might be called Need for Speed: Unbound. He claims that is the name he has heard for the racer the most often, though he is unsure if that is the game’s real name or merely a codename.
The Need for Speed game, whatever it ends up being called, was allegedly only going to be released for the PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC earlier this year, according to leaks.
