Codemasters has announced a multi-year extension of their F1 licensing contract, which covers various platforms. It is not known how many years this gives the rights to Codemasters as this was not announced, but it is likely to last until at least 2015.
“We got off to a strong start with FORMULA ONE but we harbour ambitions to do much more. FORMULA ONE is front of mind at Codemasters and we give it the focus and attention it deserves. We have established close links across the sport and they know that, in Codemasters, they have a great partner,” Codemasters CEO Rod Cousens commented.The next game from Codemasters is F1 2012 which will be released in September.
“We remain ambitious with our plans and want to take the series forward. We want to take it to new geographies, make it available on new platforms to new audiences. We are taking FORMULA ONE to a new online platform this spring and our portfolio will be extended with a FORMULA ONE experience that will address a younger video game audience later in 2012. Our teams are hard at it, creating world class FORMULA ONE games across multiple genres for players irrespective of location or gaming platform and now, for many years to come.”
