Possible Name for the New Need for Speed Surface Online

A German online store has opened the pre-order for Need for Speed 2019

Listings of the new Need for Speed game were spotted on the German online store Gameware. It suggests that the newest installment in the series will be called Need for Speed: Heat.

Even if the title turns out to be true, the attached cover seems to be a placeholder — it looks very similar to the key concept art of the mobile game Need for Speed: No Limits and has "2019" text on it instead of the actual game’s name.

Still, Need for Speed: Heat is likely to be the real title, after all. Previously, developers announced that the game will miss E3 2019 in the thread called Turning up the Heat on EA’s official forum. They hinted at the name of Need for Speed: Payback in a similar manner, too.

As for now, EA still plans to release the new big Need for Speed game this fall and sell at least 4 millions of its copies, so expect an announcement soon — probably at Gamescom 2019, which starts on August 20 in Cologne, Germany.
