Need for Speed PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Who would have thought that last year's Need for Speed game would be best remembered for its live action cut-scenes rather than its coma-inducing racing? Swedish developer Ghost Games got off to a decent start with Need for Speed: Rivals, but its attempt at rebooting the iconic franchise barely got out of first gear. We're pleased to hear that it will be taking its time before bringing the brand back, then.

As announced on the series' official website, the studio's wrapping up development of the last major expansion for last year's game right now. It'll then be turning its attention to a new title, due out in 2017. For our money, the dodgy characters and awkward acting can stay – but can we have an open world that's populated with interesting things to do this time, please? Better yet, how about we go back to the good old days of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit?
