A trademark application listing has gotten the rumor mill spinning again, and this time it’s for a new Need For Speed game. The listing appeared in Europe, and is for a game that goes by the name of Need For Speed Arena.
The last Need For Speed game released earlier this year was not exactly received as well as the publishers and developers might have wanted, even though they did deliver a game that played well, specially with the PC port being at par with some of the best ports out in recent years. I personally have gotten off the franchise when it was still at top speed with NFS Carbon, before finally crashing and burning with NFS Rivals. One can only hope that the new Need For Speed gets fans stoked for the game, and delivers on whatever it is that racing fans want from the franchise.
Also, the name ‘Arena’ gives off some feel of a more multiplayer focused game, or even a mobile port, but that’s just mere speculation at this point.
