The Second Need For Speed Released After Gran Turismo 5 Will Be...

How long will November's Gran Turismo 5 be the newest realistic racing game you can play? Possibly not past March, as EA has revealed that Need for Speed Shift 2 will be out on console and PC in early 2011.

Need for Speed: Shift 2 will be released between New Year's Day and March 31, 2011, according to a press release issued by EA today. The release focused on EA's financial performance and listed no details for the game other than its name, release window and platforms: console and PC.

The game will be EA's second post-GT5 Need for Speed. Just a couple of weeks after the release of Gran Turismo 5 on the PlayStation 3, EA will release the console and PC cops vs robber Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, made by company studio Criterion. That game is more of an arcade smash-up; the first Shift was offered as a more realistic simulation-style experience.

    but will it have split-screen multiplayer?

    I Dont Honestly care about the need for speed series because it lost its charm after Most wanted.


    Shift wasn't that good though... nothing 'realistic' about it, and graphics were pretty lame too
