EA held their quarterly financials call today, and among the news they revealed was that a new Need for Speed game was on the way. The game is set to release prior to the end of the fiscal year 2017, which finishes up in March 2018. 

The only thing we learned about it was that it would have "ambitious and more competitive online gameplay." This could mean anything, but it is definitely going to be more advanced than previous games. Need for Speed Rivals was the last game which had real interactivity online in it. The reboot, which was released in 2015, was a more modern take on the franchise being story related in addition to racing.

Bioware also announced that their new action IP would be released in the first quarter of 2018 (Q4 of the fiscal year 2017) and that Skate 4 wasn't happening. What do you want to see in the next Need for Speed? Do you think online multiplayer something like Forza will make the cut? Let us know below.
