Developer Black Box's nitro button must be worn down to a nub. The studio announced today that its upcoming Need for Speed
, will ship this November, pulling up to the starting line well before the 2009 release previously mentioned
by EA CEO John Riccitiello.
In development for every platform under the sun (yes, even mobile phones), Need for Speed Undercover
will also sport what Black Box describes as "big-budget live-action sequences" starring Balls of Fury
and Mission Impossible III
actress, Maggie Q
, as a federal agent who recruits drivers to take down a criminal syndicate. While recent Need for Speed
racers have all but siphoned our tanks of what enthusiasm we once had for the series, those who care can look forward to race with Ms. Q in North America on November 18 and in Europe on November 21.
