Need For Speed 2015 delayed until 2016 for PC

Many including my self were wondering why the beta for the upcoming Need For Speed reboot, omitted entry for the PC version of the beta. Turns out that EA has delayed the PC version until Spring 2016, while the PlayStation and Xbox One versions will still make the original release date of November 3, 2015.

EA sites the delay to provide the PC version with an unlocked frame rate, which I understand but to delay it for 5-6 months, there has to be something else. 

“Part of the conversation includes hearing from our PC community that an unlocked frame rate in Need for Speed is a massive priority for you, and we fully agree. To deliver this, we’ve made the decision to move the PC release date to Spring 2016. Our PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release dates will remain the same, starting November 3, 2015 in North America and November 5 worldwide.

This decision on PC gives us the necessary development time to increase the visuals that we can deliver on PC. We will also include content updates that will have been released on console up to that time, making them available to all PC players from day one.”

Well, I suppose that’s one less game I have to worry about picking up this year.
