Need for Speed will be coming back later this year with Criterion back in the driving seat. Earlier this year, known insider Tom Henderson reported that Codemasters Cheshire was serving as a support studio on the upcoming racing game, and now, it seems that the studio’s involvement with the franchise is going to continue.

As spotted by Henderson, recently, Pete Johnson – senior recruiter at EA – took to LinkedIn to call for applicants for a producer role at the studio. Interestingly, Johnson’s post suggests that Codemasters Cheshire isn’t just working on 2022’s Need for Speed game, but other future instalments in the franchise as well.

“We are looking for an experienced Producer to join the studio, as we embark on an extraordinary journey to deliver the future of Need for Speed,” Johnson wrote.

“Codemasters Cheshire will come together with Criterion Games to create the future of Need for Speed,” he added. “Starting with the next Need for Speed title then extending to future facing initiatives, Codemasters Cheshire will work with Criterion on creative, technical and feature execution in service to the vision outlined in the Need for Speed strategy.”

Recently, new details on the racing game leaked, talking about its open world, visual style, multiplayer, and more. Read more on that through here.

The next Need for Speed is rumoured to launch by November of this year, and according to reports, it will only release for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
