UK publisher to unleash a new generation of F1 games across all formats. Previously a PlayStation-only franchise, Codemasters plans to take full advantage of its expertise in the racing genre and is terming the new F1 titles as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of its line up. The worldwide deal provides Codemasters with rights to feature all Grand Prix circuits, Formula One teams, cars, and driver likenesses, and marks a return for the franchise after a two year absence.
The FIA Formula One World Championship games will be developed using an evolution of Codemasters’ existing EGO Game Technology Engine, with the first title expected to emerge in 2009 across the full range of console, handheld and PC formats.
Its about time! Might be worth buying an F1 game again now.
