    Announcing F1 2015

    No need for that man. Behind the guys working at CM there're also their families and beloved ones; i mean devs at CM are also workers who must bring money home each month in order to survive, and to feed their little ones too. I'm totally amazed at the lack of info this year when there's just 3 weeks to go, and I don't buy the crap that this is because FOMs approvals and all that. But from there to wish they all get the sack..., that's totally uncalled for. Relax bro.  CM was once that dev that brought us legendary tittles like colin and TOCA. They will be great again, just when they finally understand that their place belongs to making games like those. That their place is with us fans, and perhaps DIRT rally is the very first sign of this. That's why I'm still interested about how this new F1 tittle could be. Even in the middle of this media blackout. Read the last sentence of my post hola,it no shape or form would I want anyone to lose their jobs. There is undoubtedly a talented workforce at CM,there has been an upsurge in gaming development in the UK the past couple of years.Plenty of work at other gaming houses in the UK.

    Announcing F1 2015

    The first post in this thread by Community Manger justbiglee on 26th March has not being updated since the 26th March. The complete lack of any info on F1 2015 since then has obviously seen the demise of this thread. Thread should be closed until with get the "F1 2015 has been delayed" announcement from CM later this week.

    Announcing F1 2015

    Game is surely gone "Gold" this week.Otherwise F1 2015 is delayed (the one positive "feature" of  F1 2015 was the game releasing early to coincide with the season with weekly updates) and which has been hyped since 2014. Codies going to be even a bigger laughing stock if this is delayed. Really hope the Company closes later this year,CM name has fell from the Premiership to non league the past few years. (Slighty Mad Studios are already hiring for Pcars 2 and other projects so hopefully some Codies devs will get work)

    Announcing F1 2015

    1. Steve Hood did not leave Codemasters to further his career(gone to Dovetail to work on train sim and Microsoft FSX which was released over 9 years ago).Was pushed out or knew CM were in huge financial trouble. 2. There is no new game engine just an upgraded version of the inept and outdated "Ego Engine". No way CM have invested on a new gaming engine with no new games in the pipeline. New Dirt game while a good drive is still using the old game engine hence the last gen graphics and no appearence on consoles. 3. This forum is still in Beta and pretty much unmoderated after how long? 4. FOM waiting to give CM the green light to promote the game less than a month before release? Has that stopped CM from releasing screenies of all the Circuits in game,yes it seems. 5. Will guarantee this will be the last F1 Game from CM. 6. Complete bargin bin buy for me this year,most of the features and modes have been stripped away from F1 2010-13. 7. Broadcast style with no official F1 standing tables,timings etc.(the latest kick in the teeth for an officially licensed game).

    announcement date?

    Have CM even got a next gen (xbone/ps4) engine?Are there any screenshots from other games CM are currently working on? Begining to think we won't see an F1 game this year especially with Steve Hood gone. The silence out of CM is deafening.

    announcement date?

    If F1 2015 is released it will be the last of the series from Codies.Sad to hear that staff have been laid off but to be honest thought Codies would have folded last year. Huge decline since 2008 in the quality of CM games.Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising and OF Red River and the final nail in the action shooter genre the disaster that was Bodycount cost jobs and studio closing a few years back. Codemasters Racing has also failed to reignite CMs fortunes,with F1 Race Stars,Grid Autosport,Dirt Showdown and F1 2014 all flopping. CM have been 6 to 7 years behind everyone else's tech with the shambolic ego engine. Anyway back on topic can't see a release date until June maybe July this year
