The remaster is being handled by Stellar Entertainment, the studio that was recently behind Burnout Paradise Remastered. When Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered launches in November, it'll support cross-play across PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, so you can go head-to-head in races against players from all four platforms.

The remaster will bundle in all original post-launch content for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, like the Armed and Dangerous update. Additionally, there'll be new content in the remaster, including achievements, car colors, an updated photo mode, and other changes that will bring the remaster more in-line with modern racers.

The Need for Speed series will continue with an entry from original developer Criterion at some point in the near future. Earlier this year, EA revealed it had handed development duties for the franchise back to Criterion, restructuring EA Gothenburg (formerly Ghost Games) in the process.
