No More Pro Street For Need For Speed

Following somewhat bad sales of Need for Speed Pro Street EA have confirmed that the series will not be continuing down that path for this year’s effort. In fact, the series will shift into reverse gear, and get back to it roots that made it Chistmas #1 in previous years.

When speaking with Gamespot EA Games President Frank Gibeau commented that he thinks the bad sales were due to the series drifting too far from what consumers expected, that dropping the tuner culture and police evasion aspects, and having the races on tracks were bad ideas. To make up for it he said the upcoming game would once again instead focus open-world racing.
