Bit of a weird one this - EA has removed any and all traces of previous Need for Speed games from its YouTube channel. It comes at an interesting time too, with the announcement of the franchise's next iteration set for tomorrow.

Head on over to the official Need for Speed YouTube channel right now and you'll find a single video listed, the premiere of the next Need for Speed title. It means that EA has very recently scrubbed all official video proof of previous entries from its account, which raises a few interesting questions. It lends weight to the idea that this year's instalment is a complete reboot of the series, with the publisher attempting to avoid confusion over which game is which. There is, after all, a 2015 game simply called Need for Speed. We don't think it's much of a big deal, but it is a discussion we've seen surrounding the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Don't worry though, we're not planning on scrubbing our database of Need for Speed games should you forget what came before this 2019 entry. Just use the Push Square search function to take a trip to the past! Do you think this actually means anything? Park in the comments below.
