  1. Season 4 is here, let’s head to South Africa for our first stop. Killarney International Raceway, South Africa The Killarney circuit is located in Cape Town and was added to the FIA World Rallycross Championship calendar in 2017. The inaugural race was won by Johan Kristoffersson for PSRX, after the notably action-packed Semi Finals and Finals. It was also the scene of the thrilling 2019 Championship decider between Timmy Hansen and Andreas Bakkerud. The track features a fast and wide first corner, which tightens into a tricky technical section, a large jump and an ultra-fast chicane to complete the lap. Stage Conditions (General): Daytime / Clear / Dry Surface Daytime / Cloudy / Wet Surface Daytime / Heavy Rain / Wet Surface Sunset / Cloudy / Dry Surface Sunset / Cloudy / Wet Surface Sunset / Heavy Rain / Wet Surface Stage Conditions (Time Trial): Daytime / Clear / Dry Surface Daytime / Cloudy / Wet Surface Availability Information Killarney International Raceway is part of DiRT Rally 2.0 Season 4.

  2. It’s not too often you get to bring your games to an entirely new gaming to platform – so it’s fair to say that we’re incredibly excited to have GRID as part of the slate of launch titles for Google Stadia. With Stadia’s launch window beginning on November 19, GRID brings a storied legacy of accessible, yet challenging racing, with iconic cars on the greatest circuits, to the forefront of gaming technology. GRID’s return brings all that and more to Stadia, meaning you can now conquer our unpredictable world of motorsport and Get Your Heart Racing – wherever and whenever you want. Still, for Stadia players, we didn’t think that was enough. We were keen to find out how the power of Stadia could be used to create an exclusive addition to GRID. The end result? A new race type, replicating one of the oldest and most celebrated forms of motor racing. A discipline fraught with danger, challenge, and pure glory. This is Endurance. GRID’s racing experience already delivers big on action and drama with 16 cars on the circuit. With GRID on Stadia, Endurance mode expands the grid size to up to 40 cars, split across four different classes, playable in both Free Play and Multiplayer. Online, a new Quick Match Endurance option has been added for Stadia, allowing players to lobby up and compete against each other in longer-format races. As you head into Skirmish, you’ll be able to select your chosen car from the four pre-set classes that will take part in the race. A Hot Lap Qualifying session will then dictate the grid order and which car class you fall into. In Free Play, choose the new Endurance discipline and you’ll be able to customise the event to your preferences. Choose the amount of cars on circuit (up to 40), choose the time limit for the race (five-minute intervals, with a maximum length of 60 minutes), and choose the four classes that will form the grid, with the ability to mix and match across the game’s entire car roster. Want to design a traditional Endurance event with our GT machines (as used in IMSA and WEC championships) on Silverstone or Indianapolis? Cool. Want to make a fantasy Endurance race, with historic Can-Am prototype machines on our infamous street circuits, like Havana or Shanghai? Go for it. Endurance mode has the same accessibility and ability to customise as Race or Time Attack, allowing you to create the exact Endurance race you want. The goal of Endurance races is to finish first in your class, using skill and tactics to not let the other classes interfere with your race. Set a quick qualifying time, start strong and settle into a groove for the best chance of a class victory. Endurance mode is joined on GRID for Stadia by the entire existing slate of modes, features and content that PC, Xbox One and PS4 players have been enjoying since October. On the go or from home with your chosen device, conquer our globe-trotting Career mode, with over 100 events all leading to a showdown with the infamous Ravenwest motorsport. Head to Multiplayer to jump seamlessly into Quick Match races against the world, or use Private Match to design your own custom lobby to invite your friends (or enemies) into. Personalise your experience with customisable liveries for the entire roster of 60+ cars, ranging from official modern-day motorsport machines, to classic Touring and GT heroes, to road-going JDM icons, and everything in between. Edit your player card and banner to show your style and flaunt your in-game accolades. Take the keys to our totally open event creator to design the race of your dreams. Do all this with GRID’s easy-to-learn, hard-to-master gameplay and handling model, with assists and helpers for rookie drivers, or a truly testing all-assists-off experience for hardcore racers. Google Stadia begins its launch on November 19, with GRID set to arrive on the same day – complete with the new Endurance mode. Prove your worth and show you’re a racer #LikeNoOther on a brand new platform, with a brand new way to compete. Follow GRID and Stadia’s channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all news on GRID’s launch. View the full article
  3. Season 4 is coming and there’s lots going on, it’s time for The DiRT Roadbook! DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series – Round 3 Qualifiers Underway .embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } We’re now into the second week of Round 3 Qualifiers in the DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series, which means you have only 2 chances left to make it to the next stage. Below you’ll find the upcoming schedule as well as the usual info links. If you haven’t done a Qualifier yet I recommend you have a shot, as this will be your last chance to get a “free repair version” of the BMW M2 Competition for use in My Team. I’ve been seeing a few more videos of high-speed runs doing the rounds recently, including the one above from u/MrDabreu on Reddit. Mettet’s a tricky course with all those chicanes, so it’s worth a look if you want to get faster. November 12-18: Rally: New Zealand – Waimarama Point Reverse – R2 Rallycross: Holjes, Sweden – RX1600 November 19-25: Rally: Spain – Decenso por Carrertera – R5 Rallycross: Hell, Norway – RX Supercars DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series – General Information & Leaderboards DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series – Terms & Conditions of Competition DiRT Rally 2.0 World series – Sporting Regulations “The Showdown in Cape Town” .embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } The 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship reached its conclusion last weekend at the Killarney International Raceway in South Africa. Timmy Hansen and Andreas Bakkerud were only 1 point apart heading into the weekend, and they both had a perfect run through the Qualifiers, starting on the front row for the Final. That meant it would be a straight shootout to see who wins the world title, with Bakkerud needing a win to overtake Timmy in the standings. The Final itself had everything; tension, drama, big moments, confusion, “quick maths” and a new World Champion. Check it out above, and if the YouTube video isn’t available in your part of the world you can check out the action here. We’re in the post-season now and rumours of 2020 are already circling. Join in on the forum chatter below: Forum Thread: 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship Killarney International Raceway, South Africa – Available November 19 in DiRT Rally 2.0 With the sun setting on a thrilling World Championship season it’s your turn to tame the track that decided it all. Next week South Africa’s Killarney International Raceway is your opening location of Season 4, where you can relive the championship action and write your own story. As with most rallycross circuits it’s tight and twisty, and will be a real challenge in the RX Supercars. If you don’t have DiRT Rally 2.0 Season 4 yet you can pick it up here or on your platform’s storefront. Killarney International Raceway will also be available as standalone DLC. DiRT Rally 2.0 – Season 4 Contents As mentioned above, Killarney International Raceway kicks off DiRT Rally 2.0 Season 4, and you can find the Season’s content list above. You may have noticed some slight tweaks compared to what we announced in August, as some car dates have shuffled around. The good news for you however is that this year’s title contenders (the Audi S1 EKS RX quattro and the Peugeot 208 RX) will be the first 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship cars to drop, instead of releasing in later weeks. That means more Hansen/Bakkerud battles for you to enjoy. I eagerly look forward to the first video that overlay’s Andrew Coley’s epic commentary; I’m sure one of you out there is already thinking of making that Bogani looks at every Rally Car in DiRT Rally 2.0 .embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } If you’re a regular on the forums or the DiRTy Gossip Discord server you may have seen bogani around; he’s been a valued DiRT community member with lots of insight and feedback over the years. Earlier this week he felt like comparing all of the rally cars you can drive in DiRT Rally 2.0, giving you a quick look at how they all launch and sound off the line. While watching this it feels like a snapshot of rallying history, as he starts with the humble MINI Cooper S and progresses through the ages up to modern machinery. Worth a look. That’s going to do it for this week, but before I go here’s a neat video that showed up in my Recommended feed. There’s no better way to start the weekend than with the smooth sounds of a Porsche rallying around the old Nürburgring Südschleife layout, enjoy! –PJ .embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } View the full article
  4. Don’t worry. Don’t panic. This is a safe space. Whilst social media channels, television screens and plenty more mediums are starting to get all festive, we’ve decided to keep this week’s Racing Line a Christmas-free zone. It’s far too early – and besides, with so much news, announcements and insights to bring on all things Codemasters, who needs December 25th?! Over here at Codies HQ, it’s our goal to make it feel like Christmas all year round with big releases, updates and events. The last fortnight has included all that and more, so let’s start this Racing Line with our latest release, with a peek into the future… GRID We’re now over a month removed from GRID’s launch on Xbox One, PS4 and PC – though it feels like no time at all, as we’ve had our foot to the floor bringing optimisations and updates based on player feedback. Included in that is this week’s small patch on all platforms, which specifically focused on stability, reducing instances of crashes or freezes for players. Thank you to everyone for their feedback on that one – and keep it coming as we continue to push GRID forward. This week, it’s been all about Ford and Ferrari, as we celebrate the launch of Ford vs Ferrari – Le Mans ’66 in cinemas this week with content based around the historic racing rivalry. We’ve asked you to send your screenshots, pledge your allegiance, and set quick times with the Ford GT40 or Ferrari 330 P4 (both located in Invitational > Historic GT). Now that you’ve done all that, it’s only fair that we give something back, right? Check our social channels tomorrow, the launch day of Ford vs Ferrari, to see what we’ve got lined up… Next week, it’s time for something completely different. On Tuesday, November 19, Google Stadia opens its launch window to the world – and GRID will be right there for players Get Your Heart Racing on an entirely new gaming platform. We’ve got plenty going on to celebrate not just the launch, but the fact that we’re bringing something brand new to the table, exclusive to Stadia. You may’ve seen or read one or two whispers… but if you want the full story, check into our social channels on Monday. And then there’s the small matter of kicking off our post-launch content plan, with Season 1 being finalised as we speak. We’ve heard the requests for more news on Season 1, which will bring new things for both Ultimate Edition and Standard Edition GRID players. Once the Stadia launch is in the rear-view mirror, we’ll drop all the deets for Season 1. We’ve already dropped one teaser, but we’re feeling generous, so here’s another… – Chris F1 2019 Hey, It’s time for another Racing Line!

The final Rally location of DiRT Rally 2.0 Season 3 has arrived and it’s arguably the best of the bunch based on what players are getting up to. Big jumps, big bumps and my personal favourite, the stunt battle between two of the game’s fastest players; there’s something for everyone! We also dropped some swanky liveries for Season 3 players. This time we’ve gone for a minty blue theme across 5 cars. More liveries coming in Season 4! Shortly before releasing Finland Rally and the liveries, we issued a hotfix to address some things with Broadcast Mode. In this minor update we also had fixes for USB input stuttering and a few other things, too. Version 1.11 is a few weeks away yet, and we’ll drop patch notes when the time comes.

That’s it from me today – check back tomorrow for another DiRT Roadbook! -PJ F1 MOBILE RACING Just two F1 races remain in the 2019 season – and whilst the real-world champion may’ve already been crowned, the title of F1 Mobile Racing’s Season Championship winner is still up for grabs! To give all players every chance to improve their GP Events leaderboard position and fight for the big prizes, the deadline for the end of Season Championship has now been EXTENDED until the end of the year. So, make sure you take part in this weekend’s Brazil event, work on those previous event scores, and fight hard for biggest prize haul to date.

  5. With F1® Mobile Racing over a year into its full launch, it’s awesome to take a look back and see just how much our free-to-play official F1® racing game has evolved. So many of the changes and advances you will have seen in the game stem from the feedback our racers give us, day in, day out, on what you want to see more of and what you’d like to be addressed. As the 2019 Season Championship is coming to an end and the competition always gets higher, in Update 8.6, we focused on more fixes, tweaks and new behind-the-scenes tools to prevent cheating, filling up loopholes, and further cleaning up global leaderboards and timings. – The team have been closely assessing leaderboards, results and feedback from all modes to identify any potential loopholes to address. The new update will include further restrictions that specifically close down any in-game workarounds that players could use to manipulate times and leaderboards. – Alongside this, the GP Events – Season Championship leaderboard is a focus area, as we close in on crowning our first event GP Events World Champion! With overall scores in this mode comprising of so many different races, laps and other factors, we’ve been crunching the numbers and double-checking data, so that all Season Championship leaderboard positions are correct, ahead of the season finale. – With Season Championship mode, players now have an extra month participate and improve their overall score, before we close the season-long event and crown the first GP Events World Champion.

  6. Finland, Free Trial and a fascinating Finale, it’s Friday and you know what that means, DiRT Roadbook time! Finland Rally – Available Now in DiRT Rally 2.0 .embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } As if I was going to start the Roadbook anywhere else this week! Finland, one of most legendary rally locations the world has ever seen, is finally here in DiRT Rally 2.0. The undulating roads, tree-lined threats and high speed nature of the Stages are a real delight to blast through, and it’s been great to see you all hard at it since Tuesday. And the jumps, oh lordy the jumps are mighty. Finland Rally features more jumps than any other location in the game and there’s some real launchers in there as you’ve all been demonstrating. Some of you have been doing stunt battles while others… have involunrarily ended up as sudden guests in a family home. Either way, Finland’s a blast and a great way to send off Season 3. Finland Rally – Available Now Season 3 Stage 3 Liveries – Available Now in DiRT Rally 2.0 Alongside the release of Finland Rally came a sweet new set of Season 3 liveries. This time it’s a set of clean blue and white designs that feature across 5 cars. Personally, they remind me of the Mazda 323 a little, though as with all Season designs they take inspiration from multiple sources to create something original and fresh. If you own Season 3 these liveries are available now in-game on the following cars: Ford Fiesta RX (MK7) Mitsubishi Space Star R5 BMW M2 Competition Subaru Impreza 1995 Peugeot 205 GTI DiRT Rally 2.0 – Game Editions & Season Bundles DiRT Rally 2.0 Trial Version – Available Now on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 .embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } If you’re reading The DiRT Roadbook I imagine you’re already a fan of DiRT Rally 2.0, but if you haven’t driven yet or know a friend who should give it a go, the DiRT Rally 2.0 Trial Version is now available for free on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This is your chance to experience what it’s like to launch a rally car down a stage, dance on the edge of control and overcome the challenges waiting around every corner; or go head-to-head with other drivers in the fast and frenetic world of Rallycross. We’ve worked with our community of players, drivers, team members and car manufacturers to bring you our take on two flavours of the sport we love. Whether you’re aiming to prove yourself as one of the fastest drivers in the world or simply explore rallying’s rich history, there’s something here for you. DiRT Rally 2.0 Trial Version – Information and Download Links FIA World Rallycross Championship – The Showdown in South Africa Rallycross’ most exciting season to date goes down to the wire this weekend as the RX Supercars and drivers head to Cape Town for the Championship finale. Three drivers are still in with a shot of glory; Sweden’s Timmy Hansen is just 1 point ahead of Norway’s Andreas Bakkerud and 8 ahead of his brother Kevin in the other Peugeot. Initially the Hansens traded Championship lead duties in the early rounds but all the while Bakkerud was keeping up, and overtook both them in France. A tense weekend in Latvia set things up nicely for this weekend’s showdown. You can watch all of the action this weekend on the FIA World RX channels and if you’re eager to have a go yourself several of this season’s locations are in DiRT Rally 2.0, along with the 2018 season’s cars and drivers. As for the 2019-spec cars, they’re coming in Season 4, which kicks off in a few weeks with this weekend’s location, Killarney International Raceway in South Africa. We’ll be dropping a few screenshots on @dirtgame over the race weekend but here’s one (above) to get you started! DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series – Round 3 Qualifiers Begin The DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series is still active, with the final set of Qualifiers now underway. Below you’ll find the schedule for November as well as the usual info links. If you haven’t done a Qualifier yet I recommend you have a shot, as this will be your last chance to get a “free repair version” of the BMW M2 Competition for use in My Team. Speaking of, we noticed that some players weren’t getting their car for recent Qualifiers. After some server checks we re-issued those so if you were one of the affected players check your My Team Rewards where your new car should be waiting for you.

You’re reminded of this on every single ticket you purchase for an event, and sometimes accidents happen. Shortly after publishing last week’s Roadbook a touching drama and character study about the consequences of motorsport was shared within the DiRT team, and I want to drop it here for you all today. As much as we admire the bravery of those who drive, it’s the ones who go back after risking it all that we salute the most; it takes a special kind of character and bravery to do that. Have a good weekend everyone, I’ll be back next week with the usual DiRT goodness. -PJ View the full article

Be sure to subscribe and tune in, there’s no better way to start the weekend. Jämsä, Finland is available in DiRT Rally 2.0 Season 3, which you can grab for available platforms here. Version 1.10 Update Available Now – Version 1.10.1 Next Week .embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } This week we updated DiRT Rally 2.0 to Version 1.10, featuring more tweaks to the game and a few additions. Primarily this update is in preparation for the 3 Locations (1 Rally, 2 Rallycross) that are releasing over the next month but there are a few other handy things in there too, like new Achievements, further VR optimisations, car, location & audio updates and more. SkyRex has done the usual thing of compiling update highlights into a video which you can see above. While we’re talking about updates here’s a quick heads-up: we’re releasing a minor hotfix next week. This focuses on Broadcast Mode but also addresses some stuttering that players were experiencing when using USB input devices. Patch Notes for both are below: Patch Notes: DiRT Rally 2.0 Version 1.10 Patch Notes: DiRT Rally 2.0 Version 1.10.1 DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series – Round 2 Complete .embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } Round 2’s Qualifiers of the DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series are in the books and the team’s currently checking the top times, verifying the runs and getting ready to contact qualified players. Round 3’s not far away but while we take a break from the action let’s look at one of the rapid drivers from Round 2. The run was shared on Reddit a few days ago and is worthy of a watch. Russell Brookes – 1945-2019 .embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } Earlier this week we received the sad news of Russell Brookes’ passing. A famous name of classic British rallying, he was known for his battles with Jimmy McRae (Colin’s father) back in the 1980s in the famed “Andrews Heat for Hire” Opel Manta 400. Above you’ll find a great video featuring him and the car in action It has been an honour to have his livery appear in our games, and the DiRT team’s thoughts are with Russell’s family, friends and loved ones at this difficult time. Thanks for reading, see you all next week. –PJ View the full article
  10. Welcome to the first ever Codies Racing Line – Spooo000oo00ky Edition! What’s so terrifying and nightmare-inducing about our latest fortnightly update on all Codemasters news and goings-on, you ask? Well… erm… we’ve switched the lights off in the office whilst writing it. And… it’s a little foggy outside, a bit like a level from Silent Hill. And… a bunch of data spreadsheets and reports haven’t been completed, even though the deadline for them is today. Truly scary stuff. Despite all of that, we’re soldiering on to bring your another Racing Line that’s full of key news on major Codies titles, as well as some announcements for both the past and the future of our F1 franchise. With the United States Grand Prix right around the corner, let’s begin with F1 2019, which has taken a spo0o0oky turn of its own… F1 2019 It’s been another busy fortnight here in the world of F1 2019! Happy Halloween to all of our players – we hope you all have a seriously spooky day and night! We dropped some Halloween-themed content for those that want to join in with the festivities. There are a few ghastly items to pick from: a jack-o-lantern helmet, some skeleton gloves and suit, and a very special livery. If you want to give your rivals a fright, they’re available to download now on all platforms. Update 1.15 has been released, and with it we’ve made tweaks to the performance of AI from starts, what happens when cars are lapped online, and much more! Take a look at all the patch notes here. We’re into Round 5 of 6 in the F1 Esports Challenger Series and the racing has never been more exciting. Keep an eye on F1esports.com/live-stream to be sure you don’t miss the next stream. This week’s F1 Esports races are taking place in COTA, just before Round 19 where Lewis Hamilton can clinch the title by finishing eighth or higher. We’ll be following all the action on our @Formula1game Twitter account, so join us there! Finally, earlier this week we released the Expert’s Guide to F2 video featuring Lando Norris and George Russell. The aim of the video is to give you a taste of what to expect before embarking on an F2 season in-game. We’ve dedicated our video to the Anthoine Hubert, following his tragic passing in August. Check out the video below: – James GRID The dust is beginning to settle and the tyres and squealing a little less, as GRID’s launch begins to sit a little further away in the rear-view mirror. Still, that obviously doesn’t mean that the hard work stops on giving you racers the GRID experience you want. Our priority since GRID’s launch has been working with players; seeing what you’re liking, what you want improving, and what you want to see added to GRID. In the last two weeks we’ve been addressing each of these points – beginning with a hotfix on all platforms, followed by Version 1.1 – the first full GRID patch. The team here have worked incredibly hard to add hundreds of tweaks, changes and fixes to the game this month, so much of which is based on feedback from you, the players. From visual improvements, to general bug fixes, to multiplayer tweaks, we’re making moves based on what you’re asking for. We also thank Xbox players for your patience as we resolved an issue this week with the new patch, which is now resolved. Thank you for all your feedback, and keep it coming as we lay out the long-term plans for GRID, driven by your thoughts on the game. That’s the present, so what about the future? As we’ve announced, GRID’s post-launch seasons will bring brand new experiences to the game, kicking off with Season 1, which includes exclusive content for Ultimate Edition players. Included in that content drop will be a new circuit, free and available to all players – and we may’ve accidentally dropped a teaser for this on the GRID social channels… I’m also conducting some in-depth research to see what online racing leagues are the right fit for some organised GRID racing, with plans for more official events in the future… which basically means I’m jumping into a bunch of organised lobbies and entering championships with some seriously talented GRID racers. If you run or you’re a part of an online racing league want to get in on the action, @ in GRID channels in your social posts and show us what you’re all about. – Chris DIRT RALLY 2.0 Hey everyone, it’s PJ, back again with a roundup of DiRTy news: • The Peugeot 206 Rally and Volkswagen Golf Kitcar are here, and they’re a big hit with DiRT Rally 2.0 players.

More info on that in the coming days. • Think you’re a hotshot? Well, you may want to think again, 9 year old Sam’s the quickest kid we’ve ever seen.

A legend of the British rally scene, his Opel Manta 400 was a fan-favourite and we’re honoured to have featured his livery in our games. The DiRT team’s thoughts are with his family, friends and loved ones at this difficult time. -PJ F1® MOBILE RACING With all eyes on COTA for a potential title-winning United Stated Grand Prix for Lewis Hamilton, we’ll keep the F1 Mobile Racing update short and sweet, so you can get back to practicing for this weekend’s GP Event state-side!

  11. Codemasters® today announced it has extended its contract with Formula One Management for exclusive video game rights for the FIA Formula One World Championship (F1®) franchise from 2021 until 2025, with a further option for the 2026 and 2027 seasons. The Agreement represents the longest extension in the partnership’s history, demonstrating the global success of the game and the shared vision for increasing the international appeal of F1. Codemasters has held exclusive rights to develop the official F1 annual franchise since 2008. Since its first release in 2009, the Codemasters’ F1 games have won multiple awards and this year’s instalment, F1 2019, has achieved a Metacritic average of 87% and a 95% rating on OpenCritic. F1 2019 has been shortlisted across several categories in both the 2019 TIGA Awards and The Golden Joysticks. F1 Mobile Racing, which debuted in 2018, has over 12 million installs and went to number one in the Racing category in 150 countries. “We are delighted to be extending our long-term partnership with the pinnacle of motorsport,” said Frank Sagnier, Chief Executive Officer at Codemasters. “Both the sport and game franchise are going from strength to strength and the arrival of new platforms, business models and territories, combined with the rapid growth of the F1 Esports Series, give us a springboard to even greater success. I’d like to thank the team for the incredible hard work they have put into this franchise over the last ten years, and I look forward to seeing how they continue to innovate to surprise and delight our current players and bring new fans to the exciting world of Formula 1.” “Since 2008, Codemasters has been an invaluable partner to the franchise, consistently creating games of the highest quality and enabling fans to get even closer to the world of F1,” said Frank Arthofer, Director of Digital and Licensing at Formula 1. “Together we share a common vision for increasing the global appeal of F1 and the official video game of the FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP continues to be a key part of that strategy.” F1’s popularity has experienced remarkable growth since Liberty Media’s acquisition in 2017. Social media followers have grown 193% during this period to 23.8 million making it the fastest growing major sport across social media channels. The introduction of the New Balance F1 Esports Pro Series, which is now in Season Three, has enabled F1 to reach both new fans of the sport as well as engaging a younger demographic. Season Two delivered 5.5 million viewers across online and TV with a further 100 million social media impressions and the 2019 Qualifying phase had 109,000 participants.
