Fans of Need for Speed will need to wait until next year for the next entry in the franchise.
But there's still a little more to come from the last game, 2015's creatively named Need for Speed. SpeedLists, a series of five pre-selected events that give you points based on your position in each, will be added soon. New achievements, activities and a prestige mode will also be added.
In a blog post on the official website, Ghost Games looked at the past few months for the franchise, and forward at the future.
Since we released Need for Speed last November, we’ve been humbled by the support from our players and the ongoing collaboration with you. We have learned so much from your feedback, and much of that has gone on to shape the free content updates to NFS. Features such as Manual Transmission, Wrap Sharing, Snapshot Pro, SpeedLists, Customization items, bigger garage and more came directly from your suggestions. We’ve also introduced Hot Rods, saw the return of Drag Racing, and you once again went toe-to-toe with the infamous Eddie.
The SpeedList update will be our last free content update for this game. Make sure you're still earning bonus REP, taking advantage of discounts or earning some extra in-game money from all the upcoming Community Events. The next one starts this weekend, so hit the streets of Ventura Bay and earn yourself an extra $1,000 in-game credits from all Drag Events. Also, keep taking your personalization to the next level and build up your decal collection by completing the Daily Challenges, and with more than 150 on offer, there’s definitely something for every ride.
That’s not to say that we’re going quiet between now and then... far from it. We'll be working with our community and there will be multiple opportunities to bring many of you into the studio in the coming months to get your feedback on where we're headed.
Your passion and dedication for Need for Speed continues to motivate, inspire and drive us forward. It's absolutely amazing. From all of us at Ghost, thank you.
