EA stealth-announces new racer

Need for Speed:  Hot Pursuit 'coming soon' to iPhone

It’s not been officially announced via press release yet, but according to EA’s FIFA 11 App Store description there's an iPhone version of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit on its way.

The picture above is of the console version of Hot Pursuit 2, before you get too excited.

Without details it’s hard to speculate, but there's a new Hot Pursuit home console title in the pipeline, so it's likely to be an iPhone version of that sequel rather than a direct port of an older game in the series.

Previous Need for Speed games have served up a neat compromise between realistic(ish) driving physics and the sort of chunky, pick-up-and-play gratification that’s perfect for the iPhone.

We've asked EA for more details.
