Apparantly there are two more NFS titles in the works, which are planned to be released in Q4 2010 and Q1 2011.
The rumor is that this year’s Need For Speed title will be the third from the Hot Pursuit series, possibly a remake of the classic NFS3 Hot Pursuit from 1998 (the first of the series to have cop cars chasing you). According to the name, we should expect the return of police pursuits. If we previous rumors are true, this might be the title Criterion Games is working on, who are the creators of the successful Burnout-series.
The second game is planned for release in the 1st quarter in 2011. As it seems, it’ll be a successor of NFS Shift and possibly carry the name Need For Speed Shift 2. Given the success of NFS Shift this seems to be a logical step from Electronic Arts.
As soon as we have more information, we’ll keep you updated.
