Need for Speed: Payback announced

EA has revealed their newest Need for Speed game, subtitled Payback. The game will feature a squad pulling off heists and running from the law.

Here's what the developer Ghost Games' executive producer had to say:

Need for Speed returns this year to challenge what players expect from racing games. We’re still delivering everything our fans love about the franchise – the deepest customization, an impressive roster of cars, intense races and open world pursuits – but with Need for Speed Payback, we’re bringing together all those elements in an all new blockbuster driving experience. From the story, to the different characters you can drive as, to the varied missions, to the edge-of-your-seat moments, this is our vision for what action driving entertainment means today.
— Marcus Nilsson, via press release

Sounds basically like a Fast and Furious game, so if they nail the wacky tone, I'm all in.
