Need for Speed Heat

Street racers drive around a Miami-inspired city where they hustle for cash during the day and build up their reputation during the night, all while fending off a corrupt, aggressive police task force dedicated to bringing street racing to a halt.




On May 29, 2019, EA representatives reconfirmed that a new Need for Speed game would be shipping in 2019. The detail-free announcement was mostly done as a preemptive move to head off questions about the game not appearing at E3 2019.

On August 14, 2019, EA officially announced the game as Need for Speed Heat along with a trailer featuring the series' typical racers versus police theme.
