Electronic Arts has handed the reins to the Need for Speed franchise to its new Gothenburg, Sweden studio Ghost Games, with a release due later this year. Ghost Games was previously founded as EA Gothenburg, a spin-off of the DICE studio, before its name was recently changed. The studio is headed up by Marcus Nilsson, who has previously worked on past Need for Speed games. The company is currently made up of around 85 employees. Nilsson and his team have been tackling the next in the Need for Speed series, called Rivals, and the game will be released for currently generation platforms, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year. The game will focus largely on social competitive elements, with players able to switch between single player, co-op and competitive modes seamlessly.
