EA To Bring Need for Speed Hot Pursuit To Windows Phone 7

Towards the end of 2011, I went on a rant against EA and their support for Windows Phone 7. It was around the time when Microsoft and their partners announced a new range of Windows Phone 7 handsets. A year ago with the first wave of devices, EA announced 4 titles for the platform. I continue to be a fan of the Need for Speed series and while I may not be as hardcore today as I was, I enjoy the game a lot more than any other racing game I’ve tried. Need for Speed Undercover was among my first purchases when I got my Samsung Focus and I still play it from time to time. Today, on the official Windows Phone blog, Microsoft shared details about 4 new games headed to Windows Phone 7 in February, the first title in their list?—Need for Speed Hot Pursuit.

Tim McDowd, writing for Microsoft says the game will have 24 tracks (day & night) and 48 career events, doesn’t sound like a lot but I am not complaining. I expect the game to be priced at around $6 ($5.99 or $6.99) like most popular Xbox LIVE titles. McDowd shared just one teaser screenshot from the game:

Along with NFS HP, first person shooter fans should be excited about Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell availability on the platform. Toy Soliders: Boot Camp and BulletAsylum are the other two games.
