Firemonkeys, the makers of Real Racing 3, has announced Need For Speed No Limits for iOS and Android. The next entry in the fabled Need For Speed racing series is slated for a 2015 release.
In a blog post announcing the news, Robert Huebner, Executive Producer, Firemonkeys, wrote, "We've built No Limits from the ground up to deliver the insanely-fast driving and incredible graphics that fans have come to expect from Need for Speed - all in the palm of your hand."
"The team at Firemonkeys has also been bringing Need for Speed to mobile gamers for years, and it's an honor and a privilege to once again get behind the wheel of this incredible franchise and redefine street racing on mobile," he continued. "We're constantly amazed by the power and performance we're able to get out of the latest phones and tablets and think you will be too."
With the status of the next console and PC edition in the Need For Speed series unknown, going mobile first might be just the shot in the arm the series needs - even more so in emerging markets such as India where the Need For Speed series has seen great success in the past and where mobile gaming is largely prevalent over console and PC gaming.
While Real Racing 3 used a free-to-play monetisation model, it's yet to be announced whether Need For Speed No Limits will adopt the same strategy or not. Though details are scarce, there's a slick trailer out featuring professional rally driver Ken Block, which you can check out below:
