So far, we have no confirmed release date, but an EA insider has revealed that the game will launch in September or October of 2022.

Insider Tom Henderson speculated on the new Need for Speed 2022 release date in a tweet on January 1st, 2022. In the tweet, Henderson referred to the delay in the game’s release due to Criterion pausing development to help DICE with Battlefield 2042, citing it as a major reason that Need For Speed will be coming out so late in the year.
