Need For Speed Most Wanted Remake Teased By Actor On Social Media

A remake of Need for Speed Most Wanted has been teased by the actor who played Sergeant Jonathan Cross’ partner in the original game.

The actor in question is Simone Bailly, who played Sergeant Jonathan Cross’ unnamed partner in the original game’s live action segments as well as during gameplay. She took to both Twitter and Instagram to hint at the existence of a Need for Speed Most Wanted remake.

It’s unclear whether her post was worded incorrectly or if her social media accounts were tampered with. It’s worth mentioning, though, that both the tweet and the Instagram post were later deleted, suggesting that she may perhaps have spilled the beans.

For the uninitiated, the original Need for Speed: Most Wanted is an open-world racing game developed by Criterion Games and published by Electronic Arts. Serving as the nineteenth installment in the Need for Speed series, it was globally released for various platforms including Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, iOS, and Android. The game first launched in North America in 2012, followed by a Wii U version titled Need for Speed: Most Wanted U in 2013.

In Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Cross serves as a police sergeant within the Street Racing Unit of the Rockport Police Department. Throughout the game, he is accompanied by his unnamed female partner (played by Simone Bailly), who is always by his side.

Cross initially makes his presence known during the prologue of Need for Speed: Most Wanted. He apprehends the player for engaging in illegal street racing and driving a non-street legal vehicle. However, an urgent call interrupts the encounter, leading Cross to reluctantly release the player. Before doing so, he unintentionally scratches the player’s car with his car keys, leaving a visible mark. Cross seizes an opportunity to pursue the player after they lose their car to Razor. Eventually, the player is released from custody due to insufficient evidence.
