Electronic Arts last year delayed the release of the next Need for Speed game due to developer Criterion Games moving to support EA DICE in the development of Battlefield 2042.

Insider Tom Henderson via Twitter has said EA expects the next Need for Speed game release in either September or October of this year. 

"EA is expecting Need for Speed by Criterion Games to release in September/October 2022," said Henderson.

"Need for Speed development had to be paused in summer 2021 as Criterion Games needed to help with the development of Battlefield 2042."

So despite other studios helping with development Battlefield 2042 still launched broken. These suits don't seem to get the concept of launching games when they're finished.

Fcking EA making criterion support a dumpster fire that is fcken Battlefield,

Both EA and Activision Blizzard are a waste of space using other devs as support instead of them minding their own business...

Yeah, there are a lot of fans that hope Microsoft will make Activision skip a year every now and then for Call of Duty, and free up their support studios to go back to other franchises.

The only Need for Speed games I was really into were the Underground games on the PS2, but I also enjoyed Most Wanted
