Electronic Arts has said that the Need for Speed franchise has sold over 100 million units since it was first launched in 1994.

The franchise has generated over $2.7 billion in worldwide sales, making it the most successful racing series on the market, claims EA.

"Few videogame franchises ever reach the 100M units mark, so this is a huge honor," offered Frank Gibeau, president of EA Games.

"We have millions of fans to thank for driving us to this milestone. With the launch of Need for Speed SHIFT and the upcoming release of Need for Speed NITRO, we hope to continue to deliver the most entertaining, action-packed racing experiences."
