Need for Speed Unbound is the new high octane racing game released November 29th of 2022. But is Need for Speed Unbound crossplay? This long-standing title has been a household name for racing games for a very long time, so it was no surprise to us when we heard plans of a 2022 release to next-gen consoles. But is it cross gen? As a series known for its availability on most consoles, a question lots of people are asking is: What about cross platform?

Is Need for Speed Unbound crossplay and cross platform?

Need or Speed’s racing gameplay has always in part been centered around the ability to team up and race with your friends. This game is no different.

Is Need for Speed Unbound cross-generation?

EA has been churning out games this fall/winter, and we’re expecting it to be a big turn out for them. So, as you can imagine, they’ve been turning their sights onto more next-gen oriented games. This is sadly the case for Need for Speed Unbound. Unfortunately, unlike games such as Forza Horizon 5 that are accessible on both generations of Xbox, it does not look like the game will be cross-generation, as it will only be released to PC and next-gen consoles. Need for Speed will be more like other EA games such as PGA Tour, and only be released for next-gen consoles and PC.

We can only hope that a release to PS4 and Xbox One is in the works, but unfortunately, we cannot be certain. Usually games like God of War Ragnarok that are available on both generations are released simultaneously, so we cannot be sure. Be sure to check back on this page when we have more to update!
