GRID: Autosport isn’t coming to PS4 or Xbox One, but Codemasters has stressed that the racing franchise will come to new-gen formats in due time. The team has also clarified that its using PC as its lead platform.


It follows our big report on the first GRID: Autosport trailer, screens and details. Hit the link for a big info-blast.

Now, on NeoGAF, Codemasters community developer ‘CodiesLoore’ wrote, “Yes, PC as lead platform for us (it’s not a PC port as some have said). Next-gen GRID will come in time, we’re not going to rush that and get a game that can only run at 720/30 or something similar, next gen has to look and feel like ‘next gen’ for us.”

Further on, they added, “Regarding next-gen, ultimately it comes down to a few things. The first is that we genuinely want our first next gen outing to be something really great, we don’t want to have to rush and only put out a handful of tracks.

“We’ve got 22 locations in Autosport, the bulk of those are real world circuits, would all those have made it if we were to support next gen? Doubtful.

“Secondly, we’re working our tech for next-gen now, as such, we’re not quite ready. Again, we don’t want to rush. Thirdly, after GRID 2 we sort of had something to prove, we wanted to leave the ‘old gen’ with a bit of a bang so to speak.”

It sounds like Codemasters is considering its new-gen strategy while creating GRID: Autosport in tandem.

The game’s out on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 from June 27.
