Electronic Arts unveils smartphone and tablet racer No Limits in first year without new console release since 1996

Real Racing dev working on next Need For Speed as franchise skips consoles

Need For Speed is taking a year out from traditional games devices, instead opting for a brand new mobile game from the studio behind the Real Racing series.

EA-owned Australian dev Firemonkeys is currently working on Need For Speed: No Limits, which will be released "soon" for smartphones and tablets. 

The team is also working with Ken Block, an American rally driver that assisted with the development of Colin McRae Dirt 2 and 3.

2014 will be the first year since 1996 that EA has not released a new NFS title on home consoles, according to MCV.

No Limits’ executive producer Robert Huebner said "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 honour and a privilege to once again get behind the wheel of this incredible franchise and redefine street racing on mobile."
