EA confirmed back in February of this year that a new Need for Speed title would be out by Fall 2019, but word on the racing sequel has been scarce since then, with EA deciding not to make an announcement at E3 this year. However, we now have a more concrete window for when we can expect the game to be officially unveiled.

Speaking during the company’s recent quarterly financial call, Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed that they would be lifting the lid on Need for Speed 2019 in the next few weeks- more specifically, he said that an announcement would be made “heading into Gamescom.”

There’s not much that we know about Need for Speed 2019 so far. EA has claimed that the racer will be “revitalizing the street racer vs. cops fantasy at the core of the franchise”, while the publisher has promised that extensive vehicle customization will also be at the core of the game. More recently, a retailer listing may have potentially leaked that the game will be called Need for Speed Heat.

Gamescom is scheduled to be held in Cologne, Germany from August 20th to August 24th, so we’ll have more concrete information not long for now. Stay tuned for all the updates.
