Need for Speed: Shift is the thirteenth installment of the racing video game franchise Need for Speed. It was developed by Slightly Mad Studios in conjunction with EA Bright Light and published by Electronic Arts for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Portable, Android, iOS, Symbian, Windows Mobile, MeeGo and J2ME in 2009.

Shift's gameplay focuses on simulation, rather than the arcade racing of previous titles. Shift was followed by a sequel, Shift 2 Unleashed, in 2011.
