Spot the Devs is a community event where the Need for Speed World Development Team log into the game and drive a new exclusive car never seen before in the game. If a player spots a developer and submits a clear screenshot, the player will have the chance to win a prize. Prizes can include cars, aftermarket parts, starter packs and etc. The car drove by the developers is usually released some time after the event.
Spot The Devs 15 was cut short due to server trouble and re-scheduled for a later date. The entries from the first attempt were to be combined with the entries from the second, but three days after the second event, Quicklime Games was discontinued as part of a restructuring plan at Electronic Arts and many team members were laid off. No further Spot the Devs events has been made since then, and the future for Spot the Devs is currently unknown.
In Spot the Devs, each developer starts at a certain location on this map. Throughout the event they will move to other locations on the map and sometimes unmarked spots too.
Some developers have been known to try and outrun players by starting chases. Others may be idle for long periods of time or only move to get out of a crowd and provide a more clear view of their car.
