The large-scale Need for Speed racing franchise could bring one of its most popular titles to PlayStation 4 with Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered. The Hot Pursuit subtitle of the racing series dates back to 1998 with Need For Speed III: Hot Pursuit. This remastered game can however be closely related to the 2010 version.

Unfortunately, this is all the information we can gather from this documentation.
The Need For Speed franchise is a long-running series that features exotic sports car racing and car modifications. Electronic Arts first released The Need For Speed in 1994 on the 3DO home console. The game was then relaunched as Need For Speed: Special Edition on Windows, PlayStation, and Sega Saturn. Since then, EA has released over 20 Need For Speed games, including 3 with the tagline Hot Pursuit.
Need For Speed III Hot Pursuit launched in 1998 on PlayStation and PC with police chases playing a major role at the end of the races. Police chases were also part of the game’s multiplayer mode, with one player driving a police vehicle to chase the other player. The illegal chase gameplay helped popularize the series and ultimately brought a feature film to life. Regardless of how the movie did, the Need For Speed franchise is due for another Hot Pursuit title.
