The Race is Coming to an end.

Postby DJBIDOUILE » 15 Apr 2015, 16:55

After five years on the race track, Need for Speed World is about to run its last lap. The free-to-play PC action racer will be permanently shutting down its servers on July 14th 2015. Purchases of SpeedBoosts will be disabled as of today.

When it launched 2010, Need for Speed World brought together best-in-class action racing with an unparalleled social experience on PC. However, five years on, we feel that the game no longer lives up to the high standard set by the Need for Speed franchise. The steady stream of live content kept our players engaged but unfortunately we were not able to keep pace with feature development. At this point, the major overhaul needed to bring the game up to speed is not viable for us, so after careful review we came to a decision to stop development and begin winding down support of Need for Speed World.

We’re still leaving Need for Speed World on for a couple more months. If you have a balance of in-game currency, we encourage you to spend it before July 14th. While you can spend the currency you already have, we are disabling the functionality to purchase SpeedBoost, as well as the ability to register new accounts, from now until the closing date.

It’s been a great ride. We would like to thank our community for a wonderful five years. We’re grateful for the time we spent together.

Need for Speed World development team.

NFS World is still plenty active considering the developers pretty much ignored it for the past 3 years. Both new and old.

Is there a chance that the Need For Speed franchise is undergoing a change of leadership? EA's business model has remained relatively unchanged since Hot Pursuit in 2010, until the announcement of no new game in 2014. Surely EA wouldn't kill off such a long-running franchise.

Is it unrealistic to hope for a well developed Need For Speed game this/next year?
