The next edition of Need For Speed is set to be unveiled tomorrow, according to the official Need For Speed YouTube account.

However, a video has leaked online which shows some revealing footage of what the game could entail.

It’s being rumoured, as shown in the video below, that game could be named “Need For Speed. Heat”, alongside speed cars being completely removed and off-road mode becoming obsolete.


Earlier on in the day, it appeared Electronic Arts removed videos and posts related to the franchise on the social media accounts.

The official Need for Speed channel on YouTube indicates that it is home to no less than 238 videos. However, clicking the channel itself shows only a single video. Need for Speed’s official Instagram page has been similarly scrubbed, though all seems normal with regards to the series’ Twitter account.

It’s almost two years since the last Need For Speed game, called Payback, released in 2017.

Back in June, EA Community Manager Ben Walke responded to a PlayStation Europe tweet about World Emoji Day with a series of police cars chasing a vehicle, sirens blaring. Could that be a sign of what is set to be revealed tomorrow?
