Codemasters to refocus on racing games


Codemasters to refocus on racing games

Codemasters has shuttered its small, Malta-based team and said that it plans to focus on racing games from here on out.

A representative told Eurogamer that "it's been great to explore projects outside of racing, we know that our hearts belong to racing in all its many glorious forms."

“The success of Dirt Rally’s Early Access programme has been incredible, F1 2015 was very successful reaching number one in many territories, we’ve recently announced that Micro Machines will come to mobile and we have a strong road map ahead of us that keeps racing as its razor focus.”

This decision comes in the wake of the completion of card combat game Battle Decks, and the overwhelmingly negative reception of Overlord: Fellowship of Evil.

Codemasters' racing games on the other hand tend to be received quite well, aside from a couple of middling releases. It will be interesting to see how Micro Machines adapts to life on mobile. We're also hopeful that there are more plans in place for the Grid franchise.
