Following the somewhat controversial Grand Prix 4 preview at AlphaF1, Nick Court (senior producer of GP4) has given some responses to the preview, as well as answering some questions/criticisms about Grand Prix 4.
Everything we add to the game needs to add to the experience. This obviously takes time to get right, and so when, in 1999, Hasbro gained the multi season FOA license, we created a list of all features we would have liked to be in the games. Being huge fans of Formula One, you can imagine the list was extensive, so extensive there was no way we could implement everything into the next version of the game and retain the balance of gameplay & quality vs reality that has been present in the brand to-date. Our main concern is to ensure the driving experience and the game play is of a very high standard.It's well worth a read right here.
