EA did not release a Need for Speed game in 2014, a first in a long time. This year, the developer is rebooting the franchise and going back to the series roots and taking inspiration from games Underground and Carbon. Does this mean that 2015 will be the start of another annualised series?

EA is not sure, according to COO Peter Moore. "I don’t know if it will be, it’s an interesting question," Moore told MCVUK in an interview.

"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?”

This year's Need for Speed is due in November on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
