A new Need for Speed game will release next year, developer Ghost has announced.

In a blog post looking back at what has been achieved with last year's title title, the studio confirmed that the recent SpeedList update will be the last free content update for the game as it moves onto something new.

"We are now building upon the foundations that have been laid with Need for Speed and delivering our next game in 2017," states the blog.

"That's not to say that we're going quiet between now and then... far from it. We'll be working with our community and there will be multiple opportunities to bring many of you into the studio in the coming months to get your feedback on where we're headed.

"The feedback our Community has already given us is already shaping the future of Need for Speed, and it will continue to do so as we move further into development of the next game, so please do keep it coming."
