Bad news for PC gamers: the release date of Need for Speed for PC moved to spring 2016!
Ghost Games wants to deliver the best gaming experience also on PC, which is why they need more development time:
Part of the conversation includes hearing from our PC community that an unlocked frame rate in Need for Speed is a massive priority for you, and we fully agree. To deliver this, we’ve made the decision to move the PC release date to Spring 2016. Our PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release dates will remain the same, starting November 3, 2015 in North America and November 5 worldwide.
This decision on PC gives us the necessary development time to increase the visuals that we can deliver on PC. We will also include content updates that will have been released on console up to that time, making them available to all PC players from day one.
PC-gamers may have to look for a different game for Christmas. Playstation 4 and Xbox One will still be released in November. To test the servers, there will be a closed beta-test for which you can sign up for here.
