EA have been focusing more and more on releasing remasters of late, with the company having made a conscious decision to bring back enhanced versions of older classics. The likes of Burnout Paradise and Command and Conquer have seen remastered releases, while there’s also been plenty of speculation about a remastered collection of the Mass Effect trilogy.

And it seems another fan-favourite game from 2010 is also in line to receive a remaster very soon. As per a report by GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb, EA will be releasing a remaster of the 2010 Criterion-developed racer Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. It’s supposed to be one of the seven games EA plans on releasing for the Switch in the coming twelve months. In addition to the Switch, it will also reportedly release for PC and “other consoles.”

Whether or not those other consoles will include the PS5 and the Xbox Series X remains to be seen, but it’s more than likely at this point that the remaster will be a cross-gen release.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit released to critical and commercial success in 2010 and was the first of two games in the series to be developed by Criterion. The studio recently retook the franchise’s reigns, and is working on a new as-of-yet unannounced Need for Speed title.
