A couple of months ago, we first started hearing about reports that the Criterion Games-developed 2010 racer Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit would be getting the remaster treatment later this year and releasing for the Nintendo Switch, PC, and “other consoles”. Just last month, a retailer listing added fuel to that fire. Now, we have more evidence to suggest that EA will indeed be bringing the game to modern consoles.
Amazon UK recently put up a listing for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered, which the Switch and Xbox One listed as the game’s platforms (though others will probably be coming as well). The listing was promptly taken down, but was spotted and captured over on the ResetEra forums before that could happen. Take a look at the screen grab below.
It mentions a very specific release date as well, with the remaster supposedly releasing on November 13 of this year. With that release date, one has to wonder whether the game will also be coming to the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Of course, the game hasn’t been officially announced by EA yet, but if all of these leaks are accurate – and at this point it’s starting to seem like they probably are – then that announcement shouldn’t be too far away.
Meanwhile, if you’re waiting for the next new Need for Speed game, that’s also currently in the works at Criterion, who took control of franchise back from Ghost Games earlier this year.
