Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remaster Coming in November

According to a now-removed Amazon listing (via Eurogamer), the remastered version of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit will be released on November 13, 2020. We’re not sure if that’s a placeholder or not, but the date does line up with the original’s release on November 16, 2010, which would make the remaster an excellent way to celebrate the cop/robber racer’s 10th anniversary.

VentureBeat was the first to leak Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit’s remaster back in June. According to that report, the game is coming to PC, Nintendo Switch, and “other consoles,” which presumably means the PS4 and Xbox One (actually, the latter has been confirmed by the Amazon listing).

EA is also developing a remaster of Burnout Paradise for the Nintendo Switch, but listings for the Mass Effect Trilogy remaster have suspiciously disappeared. Strangely, that may no longer be happening, with UK retailer GAME canceling pre-orders.
