Codemasters gets the F1 licence

38 second read


Just catching up on some older news here.

It was announced last week that Codemasters has managed to secure the rights to create the next Formula 1 game after Sony decided they didn’t want it anymore.

I honestly think this is a big mistake by Sony, I have often been asked if the 360 had a Formula 1 game and when I said no the people then decided to get a PS3 instead.

At least it’s a very good company that has picked up the licence though.

    Sony weren’t doing a good job with the license, so i’m glad it’s moved. There was talk of EA trying to get it, thank god it’s codemasters, i’m sure we’ll get a good F1 game now, it’s been awhile since we’ve seen one of those.

  • won’t Grid feature F1 cars?

  • Fox1

    No. GRID will feature F3000 cars 😉

  • Fox1

    I wonder if GRID will feature a spin in an F1 car like the Williams F1 car in Race Driver 2 💡

    Anyway, the license is in good hands now and I don’t expect it to flop because Codemasters will be developing F1 games for all consoles and hand held formats and the PC 😛

  • Yay. Finally some F1 on the Xbox 360 platform. 🙂

    I always thought that F1 games were missing something. I hope Codemasters make the game series much better than before.

    Very good news. Now I might consider buying a F1 game again. Especially with the repect CM got from their rally games. The last F1 (Championship edition) was utterly crap.

  • Ruslan

    Finally some justice for the F1 franchise. About time as Sony was doing nothing worthwile with the license anyhow.

  • I have never liked F1 games..maybe now it will change

    Evilredzombie’s last blog post..TV on PS3 ?

  • Jonny

    The game is only coming out mid-2010…that’s a long wait hey!
