Need for Speed: Shift is a racing/driving game published by Electronic Arts. The game was developed by Slightly Mad Studios in conjunction with EA Black Box. Need for Speed: Shift is the 13th installment of the long-running racing game franchise Need for Speed. It was announced in December 2008 as part of a three-game announcement that includes Need for Speed: Nitro and Need for Speed: World.
In the new franchising model for the series adopted by EA, Need for Speed: Shift takes its place focusing on simulation/arcade racing rather than the arcade racing of previous titles in the series. According to EA, the game has sold 4 million copies on all platforms combined. Shift was commercially successful, and followed by a sequel, Shift 2: Unleashed, in 2011.
