The Australian Classification Board has rated a new game called NHL Rewind 94, leading to speculation that EA Sports might be looking to revive the iconic ’90s ice hockey game.
The rating popped up on August 19 and was first spotted by Gematsu. The ratings description carries no useful information about the title, only stating that it originated from Canada, which makes sense because that’s where EA’s NHL games are developed.
If EA is indeed releasing a new version of NHL 94, it wouldn’t be the first time. NHL 14 included an NHL 94 Anniversary mode that gave the game a retro look and feel. NHL 94 is one of the most beloved ice hockey games ever made, so it would be no surprise to see EA revive it again.
Whether or not it would be a standalone game or come bundled with NHL 21 is not known, and it’s always possible that the ratings website contains an error. EA has not officially commented on the existence of NHL Rewind 94, but keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.
The next mainline NHL game from EA is NHL 21, which launches in October for PS4 and Xbox One. The game will be formally unveiled in August, and with the month coming to an end soon, that means the reveal should happen any day now.
