A new Need for Speed will come in 2017, this is what Electronic Arts announced at the discussion of the financial results!
The release date is planned sometime during EA's next financial year, which ends March 31 2018, but presumably they're trying to get the game out in fall 2017, like the last Need for Speed games..
EA CEO Andrew Wilson talks of an "ambitious and more competitive online gameplay", which might mean more onlinefeatures than in NFS Rivals. There are no details known yet, but it's possible we can expect more information at the E3 in a few months.
The mobile racing game Need for Speed No Limits makes its way to Virtual Reality and will be available on Google's VR platform Daydream!
After Google Cardboard, Google brings with Daydream new VR headset which is competing against devices as the Samsungs Gear VR or HTC Vive.
Need for Speed No Limits VR creates an immersive, intense Virtual-Reality experience and offers over 30 different cars and 60 events on 12 trscks. The event types are Hit List, Special Delivery, Street Race, Speed Run and Checkpoint.
You can get an impression of the game with this trailer:
The game will be available for Google Daydream this holiday season. Google's Pixel and Pixel XL are the first Daydream-ready phones available and work with Daydream View.
A new Need for Speed will come. The trailer below shows some scenes and reveils the name Need for Speed Edge, which will apparently be developed by Nexon:
The graphics and the fact, that the game is being developed by the korean developer Nexon, all points to the game being a new online-game (maybe NFS World successor?) or a new mobile game, rather than the next NFS blockbuster 2017.
We'll keep you updated.
Additionally Playfront found out, that EA filed for a new trademark Need for Speed Arena1 - maybe an alternative name, or even a complete different game?
The latest Need for Speed is now also playable via EA Access or Origin Access. Together with Unravel the latest NFS was added to the The Vault today, which means subscribers of EA/Origin Access have the possibility to play the full game on Xbox One or PC.

Ghost Games, the current developers of Need for Speed are planning the next Need for Speed game, which will be released in 2017.
The current NFS hit the stores in November 2015 for PS4 and Xbox One and this spring the PC version followed. Since then there were several free updates with features like Manual Transmission, Wrap Sharing, Snapshot Pro, SpeedLists, Customization items, bigger garage, Hot Rods and Drag Racing. Many of them implemented after the wishes from the community.
Now the SpeedList update will be the last free content-update, so that the developers can concentrate on the development of the new Need for Speed, which shall be built upon the foundations that have been laid with the latest NFS.
A new update for Need for Speed on PS4, Xbox One and PC will be released on Wednesday and introduces a new feature: the SpeedLists!
SpeedLists are a series of five pre-selected events that you compete in against other human opponents. Getting into the action is quick and easy, simply select the new SpeedList tile from the main menu, chose from Quick Play, Speed, Style or Mixed, and away you go.
At the end of each event you'll gain points for the place you finish. Then, once all events have been completed and the points tallied up, the final standings are displayed and the best racers shown off in a short cinematic sequence.
Additional updates in this patch are the Prestige-Mode, to challenge you reaching new scores and two new activities Drift Corners and Speed Runs.

Finally, the new Need for Speed made it to the PC! Playstation 4 and Xbox One gamers could already cruise through the cities in November 2015, but now Need for Speed for PC hits the stores in North America.
In Europe we'll have to wait until March 17th, but then the roads are open!
