Codemasters head Rod Cousens told attendees to this week’s Edinburgh Festival that Race Driver: GRID cost “about £6.8 million” to develop while forecasting it will generate £32 million in revenue.
He also showed Operation Flashpoint to the crowd, saying the action game cost more than the celebrated racer but still fell short of the $20 million plus “mega” category.
“Flashpoint was more expensive than GRID but it won’t cost us $20m to develop – and yet we can compete with games made with three to five times that budget,” he said.

The game’s going to be full localised, as you’d expect, with Japanese text and speech.
“As Codemasters continues to gain significant ground in the global videogame business, the release of Race Driver: GRID in Japan will also see the arrival of the Codemasters brand as a publishing label in the market,” said Codemasters boss Rod Cousens.
“We have pursued options in the market for some time and this announcement is but a first indication of our ambitions in that market.”

Codemasters CEO Rod Cousens has revealed vaulting ambitions for Codemasters growth in this interview, saying the way for the company is as a global, top 10 power.
“In terms of publishing I would like to see Codemasters as a flag barer in the coming year for the British contingent,” he said. “I think today in any walk of life you have to compete in the global marketplace. As a global publisher I would like to believe that we’re hovering in the top twenty, with ambitions to be a top ten publisher within the next three years, but we recognize that this is a company with Eurocentric roots and we’ve got work to do in key territories in the world.”
America is Codemasters’ main focus for 2008, Cousens said.
“In the coming year at least the focus will remain on the North American market. It’s the largest market in the world and so our product development strategy is geared towards the North American market. We believe that forthcoming products such as Turning Point: Fall of Liberty and Grid will find great appeal in the United States.”
