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.”
