Codemaster’s F1 game will be a sim not arcade
Posting under the alias Uncle Chewy in a post on the Codemasters forums, the exec producer of the arcade racer GRID has assured fans that its up and coming F1 game will be a proper sim.
Right, I haven’t read every post in this thread, but I get the jist and just to stop you all from panicking too much… GRID and DiRT are aimed at an arcade audience and they do that very well. F1 has different requirements and will get a completely different treatment from our in-house team, including full on sim options, physics, rules and regs etc. We will also have arcade requirements catered for as well. How this will be split we do not know yet, but split it will be.
Can everyone calm down now? Thanks.
