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.

Codemasters has acquired the F1 license, with the first game based on the franchise shipping for 360 and PS3 in the new year.
“Formula One is ambitious in expanding its reach with more circuits planned beyond recent additions in the Middle East and China. It is also ambitious in expanding its reach via technology,” said Codemasters CEO Rod Cousens.
“As a world-leading creator of driving games, this alliance with F1 is the jewel in Codemasters’ racing crown and creates an undisputed segment champion.”
Chris Deering, Codemasters chairman, added: “Codemasters’ success and recent innovations in the racing game space makes the company more than appropriately tuned for the challenge. The combination of F1’s new momentum of expansion and Codemasters’ contemporary technology and past experience is the breaking of a new dawn for the sport, on the track and on the HD game screen.”
The company has also revealed that an update version of EGO (DIRT) engine will be used to drive the game.
