Need for Speed: Shift 2 Revealed

Submitted by on Wednesday, 4 August 20107 Comments

ea games logo 150x150 Need for Speed: Shift 2 RevealedNeed for Speed: Shift 2 was announced by EA recently, and it was done in quite possibly the most boring fashion imaginable.

So what details can we tell you about this new sequel?

Well… none.

The ‘announcement’ was made in EA’s quarterly financial report.  The game is currently slated for Q4 FY2011.

We might not have any juicy details other than a loose release window, but that’s not going to stop us from chewing our cud about it.

We liked the original Need for Speed: Shift.  Ok, so it’s not going to dethrone Gran Turismo any time soon, but having options is a great thing and it was by no means a bad start to a new sub-franchise.

We liked the attention to detail in the interiors of the cars and the intense feeling you got when you started bumping around the competition.

If we could make a request, though, it would be for more content.  The original sported less than 100 cars and only 18 unique tracks.  We think that if EA wants this new racer to be taken seriously among the simulation-hungry crowd, they need to up their game just a touch.

As always, when more news come in, we’ll bring it to you.  Until then, let us know what you think about this ‘reveal’.
