During the whole period of the Need For Speed games series' existence, which started in 1994, it has experienced both ups and downs in its popularity. The developers used almost every possible trick in the genre: sports car races, police pursuits, tuning, and even cutscenes with QTEs.
The last one, Need For Speed: Rivals, was released in 2013. Not only was it commemorating the twenty years of the franchise, but it was also the twentieth game in the whole series. This year we will see the release of the new game, simply titled Need For Speed, indicating the full reboot of the franchise. The game is set to be released on November 3, 2015 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Unfortunately, the PC version got pushed back to Spring 2016.
