Need for Speed was originally scheduled to release November 5 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but now only the console versions of the game will release on that day, as the PC version of the game has been delayed to an undisclosed date in the spring of 2016. Developer Ghost Games announced the delay on their blog, where they explain the reasoning behind the delay, which is providing the PC version with an unlockable frame rate:
"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."
