The iconic Need for Speed game Hot Pursuit will most likely receive a remaster. First rumours have already surfaced in August but publisher Electronic Arts has still not announced the game. But more and more information seem to point to the fact that the remaster is actually going to happen. On September 18, the game has been rated by the Korean Gaming Rating Board, implying that its release date is not too far away.

Video Games Chronicle contributor Andrew Marmo discovered the rating on Saturday. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered will require a minimum age of 12 years for South Korean players.

On September 17, Amazon UK accidentally showed the possible release date (November 13) and cost (£34,99) of the new version for the successful game from 2010.


Since the remaster got recently rated for South Korea, it looks even more likely that the release will be in the near future. It should be available for Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, according to the information provided by Amazon UK. However, with the Xbox Series X coming out on November 10, it will probably also be playable on the next-gen console.

Just like the original game, the remaster has reportedly been developed by Criterion Games, with the studio being back in charge of the Need for Speed franchise since February 2020. The most recent release of the series is Need for Speed Heat which was published in November 2019.
