Need For Speed Underground 3: If it can sell 15m copies, we'd make that game, says Ghost

Take a look at any official video of Need For Speed Rivals and one of the first comments you'll see will likely be from a fan demanding a sequel to Need For Speed: Underground.

It's a request Ghost Games head Marcus Nilsson is all too aware of – and though the studio isn't actively working on an Underground title right now, it's something he suggests the developer could act upon if the game was guaranteed to sell.

underground 2 .best nfs game.PERIOD

generalthadeape2277d ago

Most Wanted was pretty damn good, too!

BlueBlood172276d ago (Edited 2276d ago )

I've been begging for this since Carbon came out!

PLEASE MAKE IT, I'll buy 15 million copies myself if you guys do it!

I think the time for an Underground NFS game is gone.. our culture is a lot different. Back then we were all excited about the new Fast and Furious movies and cars tricked out by custom auto shops (DUB & West Coast Customs). But, nobody puts neon lights or spinners on their cars anymore - it was a fad and I think our culture has moved on. What we want is nostalgic and I don't think it is as simple as making an Underground 3.

Make it true to the original games and it will sell, but nowhere near 15 million copies.

Redspeed932277d ago

I'll buy the first 14 million!

slimeybrainboy2277d ago

Exactly it couldnt just be a reskinned Most Wanted. It would have to be new gameplay, new customisation, keep autolog but go back to the roots of what made underground great.

How could they act like Underground wont sell? Even i9f it was bad the name alone would carry it through, instead we get the boring cops and robbers fantasy 800x

PlayStation_42277d ago

NFS was actually an incredibly huge franchise back in the PS2 days, it could have pulled those numbers back then

GarrusVakarian2277d ago

Collectively yeah. Not each game though.

PlayStation_42277d ago

Underground sold ~12m, NFS was a beast back then

hobohunterz2276d ago

The thing is they say they want it to be to sell well but I cant see how it wouldn't sell better then not so great nfs games like undercover and pro streets

make it happen and while you at it put in some Most wanted(Original) elements as well.... Police with spike stirps, Helicopters, Building breakers... At least they remember customisation is what NFS is all about so maybe there's some hope after all but NFS:Rivals is not that. We want full car customisation not just colours, good drifting, cars we have unlock/price not having all being available to find, unnecessary and over emphasised crash scenes.

ZodTheRipper2277d ago

NFS died long ago, keep it. There are many better racing games out there.

dcj05242277d ago

Hot pursuit (2010) is really fun.

Dark_Vendetta2277d ago

I just tried (the new) Most Wanted (ps+ offering) and the game is actually really good. Give it a try if you can

ZodTheRipper2277d ago

I did. Deleted it 2 days later, felt like I've played it before.

Drakesfortune2277d ago


I Also got it onplus then deleted felt like such a chore to play and to progress

BlueBlood172276d ago

Why the disagrees for dcj? Hot pursuit has been the best one since Most Wanted (the PS2 one)!

It would have been acceptable years ago but generally the whole idea of modding cars nowadays isn't as widely regarded as it once was a huge example of this was the closure of one of the biggest tuning magazines "Max Power" in the UK which saw its subscriptions as well as interest drop in it entirely. They've got the right idea with Rivals and the Most Wanted series as these games contain cars that people want to use and can only dream of driving, the whole tuning fad came into the game because of Fast and the Furious and even they have swayed away from that whole idea and moved on.

beepbopadoobop2277d ago

Modding cars is still huge! There is an insane amount of car shows on all year, max power often involved crappy chav spec cars which more and more people realised looked awful, now its all about the japanese import and euro market.

I would love another underground game made up to date with modern times, more cars and more tuning options on next gen systems would be epic! I love racing around in lambos etc but theres something nice about flying around in an every day car with a rediculously tuned engine.

ecstaticpunk2277d ago

If they focus on current tuning trends then I'd be happy the shit that was being churned out years ago and yes your right in Max Power was awful, I don't mind anything current but I'd like the focus be more on the tuning element of the engines I mean love swapping engines in Forza and would like to see someone take the idea and expand on it, theres an unofficial mod on Forza for example where you can put in a Veyron engine into a Smart I know it sounds ridiculous but its the idea of experimenting that I'd like to see in a future Underground game as well as the whole social vybe and atmosphere that comes with street racing, NFS got to a point of focusing on aesthetics that looked ridiculously awful and nonsensical storylines.

RavageX2277d ago

How would having modding/customization capabilities in the game hurt it?

Most Wanted(the recent one) was a piss poor comparison of the original. It was basically Burnout with a different skin.
