The Next Need for Speed game will be delayed until next spring as EA and Ghost Games have recently revealed. The PC version of the popular racing game franchise has been pushed back to next year as it was originally expected to hit shelves this November. It was originally planned that the PC version would arrive at the scene alongside its PlayStation 4 and Xbox One counterparts.
The reason behind the delay, as explained by the developer from Ghost Games, is that players want an unlocked frame rate feature to be added onto the PC version. This came from the feedback that came from fans that this is a feature that they want and find it extremely important as the game progresses. The company is happy to put out the extra effort into developing the feature, but the trade off is that they have to push the game’s PC release until Spring 2016.
The PC Version of the Next Need for Speed Game Will Hit Shelves Spring 2016
Getting an unlocked frame rate feature for the new Need for Speed game for its PC model will allow developers to increase in-game graphics accordingly. This allows greater flexibility for gamers that may or may not have a high-powered computer. Those who have high-end computer rigs can boost the graphics quality to what the game can handle and still let those who have standard computer builds to run the game with recommended visuals.
Since The Need for Speed PC game is delayed, it does not mean that EA and Ghost Games forgotten about their fans entirely. When the PC game hits shelves on Spring 2016, it will arrive with content updates that have already been released with the console variants up to that point. Hence, players won’t have to spend more time downloading updates even when they’ve just started with the game come next year. Ghost Games also stated that their new racing game will be a connected game wherein server stability will be of the utmost importance. Therefore, the company will be launching a closed beta edition for the game’s console variants in the coming weeks. This will help test out the backend infrastructure, and help out the company figuring out bugs and other things that need improvement.
The upcoming Need for Speed game is a complete reboot from the original game that was launched way back in 1994. The original game was ported to the PlayStation home gaming console roughly two years after it was launched for the PC.
