Talking to Develop Online about Codemasters' current stable of upcoming games, Senior VP of Production, Jamie MacDonald has confirmed that its Southam-based studio is hard at work on follow-ups to both Race Driver: GRID and Operation Flashpoint, as well as DiRT 3.
"We’ve got a major launch with F1 coming up in September and developed at our Birmingham studio, and we hope to draw new IP from there. Our Guildford studio is working hard on Bodycount, and we will be looking to to take that franchise further and further with the addition of more IP," says MacDonald.
Colour us completely unsurprised of course, but it's still good to know that we'll be seeing more from the GRID and Op Flash franchises in the near future. Both will also likely utilise Codies' proprietary EGO 2.0, which VP of studios Gavin Cheshire says is "very powerful" and "in an intricate stage right now."
"The next F1 will show where EGO has got to at this stage. I think people will agree that it has probably got the best weather of any game ever seen," states Cheshire.
"We are focused on EGO 2.0 at the moment, which will be coming in with a massive title that we can’t talk about just yet. That will really keep us cutting-edge."
Massive title, you say? Intriguing...
