Not being able to wait any longer, Codemasters finally spill the beans and give us the lowdown on when GRID 2 is releasing and all the bonuses to come. Codemasters have had us on the hook for months now, teasing us with the ever-ambiguous release window of “Summer 2013”.
Now they’ve broken the silence and revealed to us that GRID 2 will be hitting shelves in just a few months with release dates already confirmed for the UK and North America. The box art was revealed a few days ago via a stop motion Vine video that Codemasters put together.
The race is returning on May 28th, when the game hits American retailers, followed up on May 31st when it comes to the UK. GRID 2 should release at all major retailers (As well as Steam) and is coming out on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360. If you ask at your local retailer, they should be able to tell you about the pre-order packs that are available to early adopters.
There’s four different pre-order bundles, so you can pick one that’s more suited to your tastes. Each pack comes with different things with every pack having at least one of the exclusive cars. Check out what each bundle has below:

GAME in the UK are already confirmed to be releasing the Brands Hatch special edition of GRID 2 which will come with the McLaren Racing Pack as part of the purchase. The end of May is still a few months away, so racing fanatics and every other gamer (And myself) waiting on Codemaster’s next big game will have to wait just a little bit longer.
