Packed as good news on the Need for Speed website, game developer Ghost and EA Games announced that the PC version release is delayed until 2016.
The PC version of Need for Speed is pending release until 2016, probably somewhere in spring, according to the announcement. If you’re itching to catch a sooner glimpse of the hit game, Ghost and EA Games announced that Need for Speed will still be released on Xbox One and PS4 consoles in November.
How could the delay of the PC version of Need for Speed be good news? The website announcement explains that what caused the pressing of the stop button is the need to unlock more framerates. Not too long remains until the countdown is resumed.
A fragment of the website post reads:
“Part of the conversation includes hearing from our PC community that an unlocked framerate in Need for Speed is a massive priority for you, and we fully agree. To deliver this, we’ve made the decision to move the PC release date to Spring 2016. This decision on PC gives us the necessary development time to increase the visuals that we can deliver on PC.”
While for Xbox One and PS4 Need for Speed will follow the business as usual model, the PC version of the game will benefit from better visuals upon release. And if updates are a concern, these will also be automatically available as Need for Speed is released on computer.
For those taking to consoles to enjoy the game, one main requirement that EA Games and Ghost announced is for gamers to be online. A few disgruntled voices expressed their opinion on the matter, but the new feature is not likely to disrupt the hit game’s popularity.
The upcoming weeks will also see a closed beta version rolling out for gamers. Quite likely, more news will be drumming the beat on the new Need for Speed ahead of its official November release for consoles.
