EA have been secretly laughing behind the backs of Sony, Polyphony Digital and Gran Turismo 5 fans by releasing a press release that has stated a “timley release of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit on November 18.”
If you are a long standing fan of the Gran Turismo series, you will almost certainly be aware of the games delays. The most recent however moves the supposed November 2 release date further towards the Chistmas period.
Rumors are racing around as to the reason for the delay. One being that it suffered some production problems. According to some, Polyphony were polishing off some of the games final aspects but were 3 days late in turning it over to production facilities.
Slightly back on track, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is the racing game that brings NFS back to its original roots. Police chases and racers will dominate the road, as well as the opportunity to challenge friends even if they are not online at the same time.
Will the delay to GT5 encourage you to purchase NFS: HP in the meantime instead?
