EA Expects Need for Speed Heat to Sell 3 to 4 Million Units - Sales

by William D'Angelo , posted on 01 November 2019 / 4,153 Views

Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson during the latest earnings call for the company announced they expect Need for Speed: Heat to sell between three and four million units. This figure comes from expectations the game will sell similar to previous Need for Speed titles.


Here is an overview of the game:

Need for Speed: Heat sends fans to Palm City, a brand-new open world where street racers have gathered to make their names known. Bya day, players compete in the Speedhunters Showdown, a sanctioned competition where they earn Bank to customize and upgrade their garage of high-performance cars. At night, players risk it all to build their Rep in underground races where a rogue police task force roams the streets, ready to take racers down and swipe all their earnings. The roads, the risks, and the rides never end in this street racer where a player can roll deep with their crew, build their garage full of hot cars, and make the city their nonstop playground.

Need for Speed: Heat will launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on November 8.

Keep dreaming EA. The last few NFS games didn't sell that well, and so far preorders for this one aren't great (only at #170 PS4 on Amazon US currently, #75 on Amazon UK). Their 6 to 8m expectations for Jedi Fallen Order are much more reasonable considering the strong preorders for it (it's been on Amazon top 100 for nearly a month already, currently at #18 & #64 PS4 and #36 & #100 XB1 on Amazon US with 2 weeks still to go before release).

Who still plays these things? I haven't touched one in twenty years.

Maybe I should give the series another try sometime. They must be doing something right, if they're still able to move millions of units.

I used to really like this franchise. I think the first one I played was Hot Pursuit on the PS1. There were a lot of good racing/driving games on the PS1, my favorites being Destruction Derby, Twisted Metal 3, and Wipeout. I also remember playing Test Drive 4 and a Motocross game. Back to NFS, I liked the sequel to Hot Pursuit on the PS2/GCN. I even liked Underground (where it went all gangsta rap). But that was the last NFS game I played that I really enjoyed. When it came to the PS3, Burnout Paradise was one of the first games I got and I felt like NFS games went to the wayside during that time for me. I haven't really paid attention to the series since then so I haven't given any thought to the idea of trying out a newer one.
