This confirms that the game will be a mobile game and also would have a large open world that players would be able to explore. With Need for Speed Online Mobile being in their development pipeline also, there’s no room for doubt here. 

Both TiMi and EA are major AAA game developers with the former having way better expertise in mobile games with titles like Call of Duty: Mobile, Pokémon Unite, and Arena of Valor under its belt. That means that we can expect a great open-world experience as it’s not really something that has been done too often on mobile.

This experience could be similar to Need for Speed: World, which was an open-world experience released on PC more than a decade ago. 

For now, that’s all the information that is available publicly. There’s no release date either but it’ll probably be announced in the near future.
