‘Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered’ was rated by Korea’s Games Rating and Administration Committee earlier this month, as spotted by VGC contributor Andrew Marmo, suggesting that a release for the title could be imminent.
Hot Pursuit is set in the fictional county of Seacrest, which is based on the American states of California, Oregon and Washington.
The game was the first Need for Speed to feature Autolog, the social interaction system that connects friends for head-to-head races and compares player stats.
EA announced in February that it had handed Need for Speed development duties back to Criterion Games as it planned to restructure Ghost Games, which developed the last four entries in the racing series.
And during June’s EA Play event, the publisher offered the first look at some of its in-development projects for next-gen consoles including Need for Speed, which it said will offer “a seamless immersion which gets you into the race in a matter of seconds”.
The publisher also announced plans to bring seven games to Nintendo Switch in the next 12 months.
