Fans of the racing genre in general and more spefically Formula One fans wil be very pleased to hear that Codemasters have renewed their partnership with Forumla One World Championship Limited with a muti-year deal to publish games for Consoles, PC’s/Macs, Mobile devices and online platforms. Both parties involved seem to pleased to be working alongside each other with Bernie Ecclestone, Formula One CEO commenting, “Codemasters has created some of the best and most successful FORMULA ONE games to date. We and the teams work closely with them and look forward to creating more award winning games together in the future.” Codemasters Rod Cousens added “We got off to a strong start with FORMULA ONE but we harbour ambitions to do much more. FORMULA ONE is front of mind at Codemasters and we give it the focus and attention it deserves. We have established close links across the sport and they know that, in Codemasters, they have a great partner. “We remain ambitious with our plans and want to take the series forward. We want to take it to new geographies, make it available on new platforms to new audiences. We are taking FORMULA ONE to a new online platform this spring and our portfolio will be extended with a FORMULA ONE experience that will address a younger video game audience later in 2012. Our teams are hard at it, creating world class FORMULA ONE games across multiple genres for players irrespective of location or gaming platform and now, for many years to come.”
Codemasters have been responsible for some of the best driving games in the genre including last years Dirt 3 which i think was by far and away the racing game of the year if not the game of the year but thats just my personal opinion. Dirt 3 is set for a new Complete Edition release so keep an eye out for that masterpiece when it comes out.
