Codemasters founders the Darling brothers have both been made Commanders of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

“For over 20 years David and Richard led Codemasters as it became one of the video game industry’s great British success stories,” said Rod Cousens, present head of the firm.

“Their drive and passion for creating the best in interactive entertainment will always be part of the industry’s heritage and this recognition is well deserved.”

    Knowing the Darling brothers, that last quote was probably written by themselves.

    I can’t say they deserve it they make the worst games in my opinion.

    What!? Come on, Dizzy was great! :D

    Okay, Codies recently have focussed a bit too much on driving games for my liking (just where is Operation Flashpoint 2?), but there’s no denying they’re one of the most successful British developer/publishers around and they’ve got a great history behind them.
