Now Playing: PS4 Getting EA Access - GS News Update

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Although we still don't have an exact launch date for the upcoming Need for Speed and Plants vs. Zombies games, EA has revealed a release window for both titles. In the company's latest financial report, EA announces both games are expected to be released this year sometime between October and December.

In the report, EA lists new games for both Need for Speed and Plants vs. Zombies releasing during the same quarter as Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, currently scheduled to launch on November 15 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The Need for Speed and Plants vs. Zombies releases are listed as both console and PC games, so they too are probably launching on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Little has been announced about these new Need for Speed and Plants vs. Zombies games. During a previous company financial report, EA COO and CFO Blake Jorgensen announced both games. "Looking forward, we're delighted to launch Anthem, our new IP, to grow Apex Legends and related Titanfall experiences, to deliver new Plants vs. Zombies and Need for Speed titles, and to add Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to our sports titles in the fall," Jorgensen said.

In a subsequent earnings call, EA confirmed the Plants vs. Zombies game would be a shooter. Though this is in no way a confirmation, this detail implies the upcoming game is another edition to the Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare series. The theory is further supported by a retail listing leaking the existence of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 3. However, EA hasn't confirmed the leak's authenticity.

The latest financial report also mentions Sea of Solitude, an EA Original indie game that was teased during EA Play 2018, will be releasing on consoles and PC next quarter (sometime between July 1 and September 30). An adventure game, Sea of Solitude has you play as Kay, a young woman lost in a half submerged city filled with red-eyed creatures. Kay herself has begun to change into one of the monsters that populate the city, so she's searching for a way to become human again.

Need For Speed will suck. Nothing tops Forza these days.

They haven't done a good need for speed game in more than a decade. I'm crossing my fingers that the streak of bad games will end with this latest one

I'm done with NFS by this point. The PS1 classics up to Hot Pursuit 2010 will never be topped in my opinion.

Here's hoping EA learned their lesson with the last NFS. That game was a straight up shitshow on every level.

@aross2004: Nah, the gameplay was better than a lot of recent ones.

Hopefully the new NFS game will have better controls than Rivals did. It was a true PITA controlling the cars in that game. Probably the first NFS game I'd regretted paying for.

@squishytia: I'm more worried about microtransactions. Despite the cringey live action cutscenes I really liked tuning my car in NFS 2014 but NFS Payback was full of them plus Cars would slingshot past you if you didn't have the right parts equipped. Forcing a horrible grind for car parts, pretty demoralising going into a garage and there is nothing there in terms of upgrades.
