    If true, that must be the 100th time in the last 15 years I have seen "too strict" and "WRC license" in the same sentence. If that's the case, the bad news is that 100% point-to-point rally games just don't sell. That's why they are always being mixed with other series, just like in DR, D4, SLRE, and now V-Rally 4. I am worried that "too strict" is PR talk for "doesn't generate enough revenue". If so, we rally fans are looking at a crappy future. I wouldn't worry about that. ;) On a more serious note, generating revenue is dependent on a lot of different factors (like quality, for example) - not just the strength of the licence. Add to that the limitations and strictness of working on a licensed game where dates/milestones can be heavily pressurised... and you could see why it might be easier to make a different game. There's no doubt the licence gets you a level of credibility, officialness and exposure (as well as all the latest cars/locations... which you have to make/iterate upon in very short spaces of time) - but it's a challenge for any studio to tackle. It can be done though - just look at our F1 devs! :)  Holy crap you still know how yo use a computer? Must be magic!

    I believe Paul Coleman has already said that money isn't always the issue. Sometimes a license is simply unattainable due to previously established contracts. There's no such thing as an unbreakable contract. It happens in football all the time. The issue is more how much money you're prepared to pay to make two parties break a contract because it's in their mutual interest to do so. So money is ultimately always the issue. If you want it that badly you can always buy the company that owns the contract anyway - with money. Without mentioning any names there was a long standing contract in gaming to licence a particular  manufacturers cars that everyone knew about. It was supposedly "impossible" for those cars to appear in any game because of the arrangement. But some time before the arrangement finished these cars did appear in another game. Not too hard to work out what happened there. Words like "unattainable" and "impossible" are pretty strong. A bit like the word "need" which is very much overused IMO ! Well, I suppose in today's world, the green stuff is all that matters. Unfortunately, Codies don't have that much of it. I hope they have more for this next project. Well if they wouldn't released half finished games and keep the game a live with updates and support and not do 5 games at once spreading everything out they'd be a lot better off.

    You're entirely way too hopeful.

    Who ever buys stock in codies is a fool who wishes to go bankrupt.

    Couldn't prove that to codemasters. They said before dirt 4 was launched then said fuck you guys. And decided this is the future. Behold the light that is ALL KNOWING code MASTERS! Masters of shit! That is.

    They should stop making rally games. They failed on the last two rally games as is. Why support them making more. Empty promises that go no where. Better yet, shut down the forums. They don't use them anyway. No point in talking about things that wont be listened to by the people that matter.

    Well, I now know why they didn't show any Audi footage. When they that thing is an animal, that's being nice about. Riding 8 seconds on a bull seems like a better idea. It's easy to see why group B died and killed. The Audi isn't for the faint of heart. And that turbo bark!  I think driving a codemasters speced Aventador would be slower then driving the Audi. Turn 4's through Michigan isn't nothing for the Audi to do 110+mph like holy crap. Lol

    They have emerging traits that changes some of their skills. Positively or Negatively. You can also add perks.  Ok, but will the end result ever be higher then that of a staff member that started out at a higher rating?  Possibly but it is by no means a certainty  Thank you.
