New Need For Speed Game in the Works! - Get ready to go undercover with a new racing title from Electronic Arts

The latest EA investors meeting was a great opportunity for the company's boss, John Riccitiello to unveil a host of new and exciting projects. We have already reported that Godfather II was announced as a combination between a GTA and a RTS game and now we are really excited to tell you that a new title in the Need For Speed franchise has been unveiled!

Dubbed NFS Undercover, it has already been in development for a long time according to Riccitiello (at least, longer than the previous title in the franchise). According to website Eurogamer, EA's boss admitted that the company was torturing the developers with their 12-month development cycles for eight years in a row, but that changed:

"Last summer we added head count and split the team in two, so now there are two teams on a 24 month cycle," stated Riccitiello."We were torturing a very talented group of people up in Vancouver, which makes it harder to be as innovative every year. So, I think we are going to get better from here."

We truly hope so, because the last installments of the NFS games were pretty much the same thing. Electronic Arts' boss seems to have the same opinion, stating that Pro Street was an "okay game", not a good one and Undercover is going to change the situation by bringing in a richer storyline. Also, Riccitiello stated that the new Need For Speed game would take some inspiration from action movies such as The Transporter. Having this in mind and judging by the really cool title, we'd tend to believe that Need For Speed Undercover might be as original as a sequel can get. We just hope we're not wrong - and we'll see that whenever EA decides to offer more details on the game.

As expected, no release date has been announced and we don't even know which platforms the game is developed for, but we have a feeling that, like the previous ones, it will be made available on every single platform on the market.
