Next Need for Speed is Undercover

Missed this earlier. EA boss John Riccitiello confirmed that the William Blair & Company’s 28th Annual Growth Stock Conference this week that the next game in the Need for Speed series is titled Undercover, and will release next year.

“For those of you who ever saw movies like The Transporter – it’s sort of a cult classic among people with a B-movie mentality, which fits me perfectly,” he said. “I liked it. I apologize. For those of you with no taste, and you liked it too, we can go have a Schlitz after this.”

Riccitiello also said that the Need for Speed team has now been split into two and moved onto two year cycles. Read more about that here.
