Codemasters Announces Formula One Racers

Following the announcement that it had secured the Formula One racing license, Codemasters today revealed its plans for multi-year racing domination, formally announcing both F1 2009 and F1 2010.

F1 2009 will debut only on the Wii and PSP this fall, while F1 2010 will be the proper effort, coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in mid-2010. The company released a few Wii screenshots of F1 2009, which you can view above. A teaser trailer for Formula One games was also dispatched, though it includes no gameplay footage.

      Do you think they have enough time this year to put out a serious f1 game?

        well, its codemasters so they already have the dirt/grid engine to work with, and they said over a year ago they were working on f1 games.

          F1 has a huge following in the sim circle. rFactor F1 mods are huge. If they drop the bomb with this one and make it arcadish like Grid/Dirt they wont get those simguys. I guess they'll try their best to make it as much simulation as possible, retaining the arcade options for those who just want fun and not realism of course.

          And I hope, they don't mess this one up, we need a proper, official, F1 simulator.
