EA Teases Remasters, Could Mean New Need For Speed: Underground 2

Electronic Arts has opened up about its plans for the future during a recent investor call, and a lot of the titles in the works are seemingly set to cash in on nostalgia for seasoned gamers.

Announcing some of what the company is pushing for the next fiscal year (April 2020 – March 2021), EA said that some remasters of “fan-favourite” franchises are on the way, leading to a lot of speculation online over what that could really mean.

The 2004 NFS classic is one of the stand-out games of the franchise, and a remaster would be a guaranteed big seller for EA. Over on Twitter, fans are eagerly hoping the announcement could mean a remaster is on the way.

Of course, it’s all speculation until we get official word from EA. But here’s hoping!

During the same investor call that saw EA outlines its upcoming plans, the company also stated its plans to release two unannounced games from third-party teams within the same period.

Other games are also in the pipeline from the company’s internal devs, one of which has been confirmed to be a sports title.

Which “fan-favourite” EA game would you like to see get itself a remaster?
