F1 2014 Announced for Previous-Gen Consoles and PC
Codemasters has announced today that they are currently working on two F1 titles, F1 2014 and an unnamed one. The former will officially release on October 17 in North America for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
The news is exactly what earlier rumors dictated it to be. The latest F1 installment really is skipping out on the current-gen consoles, which is a surprise since Codemasters stated last year that they were very eager to work with the new hardware. This isn’t their first title since then to do so. Last month’s GRID Autosport also skipped out on the current-gen consoles and released for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC alone.
Posting on the their official blog, Codemasters Community Manager Luke Spring promised that F1 2014 will recreate “this year’s incredible season featuring all the seismic changes to the sport, including new turbocharged cars, new circuits plus all the driver moves.”
The game will feature a new driver evaluation system that will automatically tune the car and game to your current skill level to increase the competition level.
As for the second F1 game. It remains unnamed for now and will release next year early in the Formula One season for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Don’t be surprised if it’s called F1 2015.
Codemasters will ensure that the game receives live digital updates and content as the season unfolds. This will ensure that players will be “competing against the same drivers and teams you watch week in and week out.”
