Last week EA and developer Ghost Games confirmed the new Need for Speed title that will be released later this year. The reboot of this popular racing franchise carries a very simple moniker, it’s just Need for Speed this time around, they’ve decided against an elaborate moniker for this year’s title.Not much has been revealed about this title but we have come to know that Need for Speed uses the latest version of EA’s Frostbite engine, the very same engine that’s powering Star Wars: Battlefront.

EA and Ghost Games have confirmed that the next title is called Need for Speed and that it will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in fall 2015, that’s about all the details that are available at this point in time.

Since this title is limited to next-gen consoles only it makes sense why it uses the same underlying technology that’s powering Star Wars: Battlefront.

This has been confirmed by Johan Andersson on Twitter, Andersson is the technical director on the Frostbite engine and he revealed through a tweet that both NFS and Battlefront use the same version of Frostbite.

Electronic Arts is likely to talk more about the upcoming Need for Speed title at its media briefing in June, it may even give us our first glimpse yet at gameplay footage, fingers crossed!
