Will there be a new NFS game in 2022?
This was also because NFS developers Criterion were shifted to help with Battlefield 6. To help compensate for this, EA drafted in Codemasters to assist Criterion in Need for Speed Unbound's development.
Will there be more delays?
The announcement of Need for Speed Unbound has put to bed the rumours of another delay in 2023. EA wouldn't put the trailer out into cyberspace if NFS Unbound wasn't going to be ready for the end of November.
It's simply too close to release day and another delay would ruin the series' reputation. Unbound will be all but completed now, with just the final kinks to be worked out by both Criterion and Codemasters left.
