Codemasters will still be the benchmark for Formula 1 video games. The announcement was made by the same software house, which revealed that it had renewed its license with the organization that manages the Circus, until 2025, with an option for 2026 and 2027.
This is certainly good news for fans of the discipline, and marks the longest collaboration in the history of the franchise , given that the first agreement was signed in the now distant 2008. The series has had some ups and downs, mainly with the 2014 edition that was not much appreciated, as a transitional chapter between different generations of consoles, but generally, it is a much-loved title, and the last two episodes, especially F1 2019 are to be considered great successes.
Even in this case, however, a new transition phase is approaching, both for the world of Formula One and for that of video games: as far as motorsports are concerned, from 2021 the regulations will change and the arrival of cars radically different from those promises. On Christmas 2020, both PS5 and Xbox Scarlett will arrive, so it will be interesting to see how Codemasters manages to handle both changes in such a short time.
Meanwhile, fans can rest easy: up until at least 2025, F1 will continue to be part of the world of video games and eSports.
