Unannounced Need For Speed Title Put On Hold
Need for Speed: Rivals was not a good game, far from it in fact. However, developer Ghost Games was set to be it for the next few years. The developer would be tasked with keeping this dead franchise semi-animated until EA decided it was either time to let it die or give it over to someone else.
It is as yet unconfirmed by EA but a report on Polgyon suggests that Ghost Games has been hit with lay-offs which have currently put the unannounced Need for Speed title (that we all knew was coming) on hold for the time being.

EA has reportedly dismissed hired contractors and full-time staff were given the choice of taking compensation and leave or to stay on and assist Visceral on their rumoured Battlefield title codenamed Havana. This is supremely speculative but the game is rumoured to be releasing this year with a police theme.
Last year it was announced that Ghosts Games was taking the NFS franchise over from Criterion and now with Ghost Games reportedly in some downsizing troubles the future of the Need for Speed franchise is a little uncertain.
What makes this more worrying is that a lot of Ghost Gamess staff comprises developers who moved over from Criterion specifically to work on NFS titles.
