Codemasters and Formula 1 are renewing their partnership over another multi-year deal. The deal will allow Codemasters to continue making the officially licensed F1 games for consoles, PC, mobiles and online.
In the press release, Bernie Ecclestone is quoted as saying that:
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 own Rod Cousens has indicated that although he believes the studio in Birmingham has made a great start with their F1 games, they have even bigger plans for the brand in the future. F1 Online is launching in spring and Cousens hinted at a new F1 experience on a new platform, aimed at a younger audience.
Details on that project will follow at another time.
