Codemasters today revealed that it is expanding and will be taking on Evolution Studios, which Sony announced it would be closing.
From April 25th, Evolution Studios will fall under the umbrella of Codemasters and will become a multi-platform developer in the process. Evolution’s existing IPs, which include DriveClub and MotorStorm, will remain under Sony’s control.
However, Evolution and Codemasters have plans to develop a brand new IP. Codemasters said in a blog post that this expansion “will not only see us gain a wealth of racing expertise and skill, but it’ll take Codemasters to the next level as the world’s largest racing-focused games company.”
It’s unclear when there will be more news, but Codemasters hopes that gamers will be excited to see what they do next.
