Codemasters has announced that it's to remain the home of Formula One games, extending its partnership with the official Formula One World Championship Limited with a multi-year deal that will see the developer's specialist racing studio in Birmingham continue to craft its F1 series.
"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," said diminutive F1 billionaire CEO, Bernie Ecclestone.
"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," added Codies CEO, Rod Cousens. "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."
Codemasters is also readying an announcement for a family-based F1 title that'll be due this holiday season, and no doubt we'll hear word of F1 2012 in due course.
