There's fresh Need for Speed racing our way this year in November so does this mean we can expect to see a new racer from the series every year?COO Peter Moore says he 'doesn't know' the answer.
The genre "flattened out," he said, as it got stale for a while. The studio will "see how this game goes" before deciding whether to try and squeeze a new Need for Speed every year.
"Give a game a year off, and you can see it is time well spent,” Moore told. “That franchise needed a breather and a fresh look." There was no release in 2014 but at E3 2015 they announced the new Need for Speed from developer .
"EA has been at the forefront of driving games and we are not afraid to say to a team: ‘Go give it a fresh think and take a couple of years to figure it out’.”
"“I don’t know if it will be, it’s an interesting question," he replied to the idea of annualisation. "We will see how this game goes. You can only bring it out annually if you can come up with real fresh ideas. It is the same thing we’ve been going through with golf. It is golf... is there enough innovation and creativity that you can go in there with and do something different every year?”
