F1 2015 delayed to a July pole position release

Formula One! It’s like NASCAR, except drivers can turn left and right! It’s also boring, exorbitantly expensive for teams and run by what I assume to be Dobby from the Harry Potter books, who found himself a wig. While the “sport” may sound like a Death Star run with more TIE fighters on your tail than usual, it’s still prime material for the gaming industry, with Codemasters cranking out an annual F1 game just in time for the motorsport season. This year’s particular iteration however, is going to be delayed by a month.

According to the eagle eyes over at Eurogamer, F1 2015 will now release on July 10, instead of the original start date of June. This probably has nothing to do with Batman: Arkham City and Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition arriving a week later in a month that will be overflowing with E3 news that could possibly drown out any attention for the game. Probably. I NEED MORE POWER GOING THROUGH THE LEFT CHICANE! Here’s the brief teaser trailer from Friday, in case you missed it.

Still, a month might be worth the wait. Codemasters previously indicated that they’re aiming for that sweet spot of 1080 peas and 60 frames per second on PlayStation 4, while the Xbox One will optimise a 900p version of the game. “On console we’ve had it very, very close to 60fps, certainly on PS4,” F1 2015’s game designer Steven Embling explained to Eurogamer back in April.

Everyone at the studio is doing a fantastic with the optimisation, and we’re in the final couple of months before release where there’s a big push that we hit that 60fps, and that’s the plan.

It’s been a damn good year for race car fans. Project CARS turned out to be a winner, there’s a new Need for Speed on the way and Wipeout is getting a spiritual successor. Days of thunder, feels of gold.

      Fook yeah! 🙂 I am super keen on this.

      As long as it’s a VAST improvement on F1 2014, which was by far the weakest of the Codemasters F1 games… We want features added to the new games, not flippin’ taken away!

    Quite frankly I would prefer the Death Star run. 🙂

    I would always rather play Wipeout before any other racing game

    As my maths teacher once told me, “Just because you were very close means nothing. You were wrong and thus failed to get the correct answer.”

    “… final couple of months before release where there’s a big push that we hit that 60fps,…”
    This line makes me wonder if we won’t be getting another BF4 release.
    Not that I will be getting it so it doesn’t really matter to me.

    Project CARS turned out to be a winner….for Nvidia users.

    “It’s also boring” “sport”
    Man, fuck you Darryn. You don’t know shit.
    “Now where’s that Call of Duty I bought. Now THAT’S value for money right there. Oh, and nevermind the microtransactions. You don’t HAVE to buy anything!”
