Two days ago EA filed a trademark for Need for Speed Arena in Europe, according to the info we can see on the European Union Intellectual Property Office website.

In a May 2016 blog post, Ghost Games, the developer behind the latest Need for Speed games, said:

Since we released Need for Speed last November, we’ve been humbled by the support from our players and the ongoing collaboration with you. We are now building upon the foundations that have been laid with Need for Speed and delivering our next game in 2017.

So, this is expected news, but at least the Property Office website could have leaked the title of the new entry in the Need for Speed saga.
