    So Codemasters is teaming up with Eden Games (the studio behind the old v-rally and tdu games) to make a F1 mobile game :
    http://www.pocketgamer.biz/news/68235/codemasters-teams-up-with-eden-games-to-develop-f1-mobile-racing/

    I know what that mean, more crazy theories ! (even though it's probably just a weird coincidence)

    Eden games had created the great Test drive unlimted 1 - 2 if i am not mistaken.. We want games like it and not mobile shits..

  2. Maybe any Dirt 4 monte carlo location as DLC.??

    Me watching the DiRTy Gossip thread, waiting to see what happens next.
    ahaha I love spongbob i think it would be a good idea CM to get license and create a cartoony kart racing game like F1 stars etc..SpongBob and his company is beloved and it could attract many customers..

    But if you wanted a more realistic experience, why would you get rid of what makes rallycross, rallycross?
    Just i dont like a lot the short tracks and official content.. I prefer more variety about enviroments like snow , impressive stadiums , monaco location (Dirt 2 - Dirt 3) ..Offiical ones are a bit boring to me..And also more cars and many classics between them..
    So you want a sim, but you want to axe real-life content in favour of spectacular fantasy tracks? Horses for courses, but be aware you're asking for the same mix of realistic/fun as people who want Infected mode in a sim.

    And anyway, who says there can't be snow in rallycross?

    Yeah i just said my preferences... Yes i want a game with Dirt rally real rally stages and RX tracks like those of Dirt 2 and Dirt 3 with Dirt rally physics  , and not that on rail sense of Dirt rally - Dirt 4 RX mode..

    Speaking seriously i dont want to see infection and cat n mouse modes in any Dirt game by CM , that modes are for pure arcade games like Forza horizon , Gravel  On rush etc
    I bet you're a blast at parties.
    What do you mean?
    I don’t see the problem in having a fun game mode in a serious racing sim. Allows for a bit of a distraction from endless racing, and it keeps players coming back. If you looked at dirt 3, the party modes were the longest surviving online lobbies, same with demo derby on grid
    I generally agree with you , Grid 1 demo derby was my favorite mode ever i can say in a racing game but i can not put in in same class with infected car and cat n mouse of Dirt 3 as demo derby exists in real life..
    Also i have Dirt 3 and i agree that the most busy lobbies are those of party modes like infected car etc..
    I have Forza 7 also and there is infected car mode like in Dirt 3 , its funny enough and i can say that even in such arcade mode i prefer the handling and physics (like in forza 7)  to be semi-sim than completely arcade..
    I am not opposed to arcade modes in semi-sim / sim game if devs will not replace  any pure rally content with it(if we speak about Dirt series)
    For example Forza 7 has so much content , 700 cars , 31 locations with many layouts each , endless customizations etc , the party mode is about the 5% of whole game content or even less..
    But look at the Dirt 3! There are so few locations for pure rally mode , few for RX as well.. Is well known that CM games have poor content .So if means that having party modes there will be 5 rally locations , 3-4 RX tracks and some party mode content and if there is not party modes means that the game will have 7 rally locations and 5-6 RX tracks i would say "NO" to partry mode addition..
    For me the ideal next Dirt would be something very close to Dirt Rally with more content ,official rally tracks , i can live without hill climb and i would prefer and RX mode closer to Dirt 3 , longer tracks , no joker lap ,not on rails driving feeling, i dont care for offcial content about RX , and good online mode for rally (missing feature in Dirt rally)



  6. I think we can affirm, with a high degree of certainty, that DiRT Rally and DiRT 4 have both been retired from active support. The time for DLCs has come and gone. I would like to see them happen but, realistically, the team must have moved on.

    As for GRID, no. Already explained why: competition, market view of the game etc.
    The thing is simple...
    Always there is place for a real good game dude B)

    Speaking of GRID and DiRT, GRID is pretty done to me. GRID Autosport was the last good title of the franchise and of course you may want to ignore the cockpit texturing which went wrong.. There is no need to carry on with such franchise when the market is competitive and compelling the developers to compete against the racing giants such as AC, PC2, Forza and GT.. It is pretty much up to CMs to decide whether it is ideal to start planning for a whole new tarmac racing franchise with a respectable budget.

    DiRT, for the moment, is the top competitor on the rally games chart. Because of this, I don't see that CMs are planning for a new GRID or any tarmac racing title whatsoever.
    Reasons why i am confident that CM will release any tarmac game: (Grid or Toca)
    Grid is not same as AC, PC2, Forza and GT , its way more arcade..

    Codemasters are always doing the unexpected and unthinkable like:
    1) They release the Grid Autosport just after a year of Grid 2 release which supposed to be an improved version of the great Grid 1 that definitely was a joke..

    2) They suddenly released Dirt Rally on steam without any announcement , the game was the most sim game of company's history the time that they have moved to the arcade side (f1 racing stars , micromachines , Dirt 3 , Grid 2 , Dirt showdown etc)

    3) Everyone was happy when heard that CM got F1 rights on 2010 went to buy the game and his smile faded from the lips when he realized how much arcade the physics and handling is..

    4) Dirt showdown dedicated to demolition derby events for Grid's 1 derby lovers (i am one of them) was one of the worst game of company..

    5) While Dirt rally has the potential to be the best rally ever (and for me still is) with the community to be more than happy with it they decided to easy kill it not releasing any DLC and new content but to release almost after a year the pretty mediocre Dirt 4 .. They were speaking about improved handling model and physics compare to Dirt rally and the next gen level stage's design called "generated stages" which definitely was a joke too... Now  the Dirt 4 which suppose to be the flagship of the company satisfying both arcade and sim style racers almost after a year looks just abandoned (no DLC , plans etc)

    6) They got incorporated Evolution studios that their latest game was the great Drive Club on PS4 and instead of order them to make a game like that (which was close to CM spirit (pure racing game , sport cars etc) ,  they ordered to make a game like ON Rush (that it is not even a racing game but more a battle game according the videos i have watched on tube) which is not even close to Motorstorm of PS3 .....

    Conclusions....?

    For all these reasons yeah i am sure my friends , codies are making a tarmac game and i am happy for that! ;) :D :p :#


     



  8. Just my ultimate 2 cents on GRID.

    If Codemasters really wanted to bring back that franchise and really do so with a bang, it was simple: they should have given it to the Evolution Studios guys. Evolution Studios shut down after developing and, brilliantly supporting, Driveclub. To me, it's still a great game and one of the best simcade road/track titles out there, hands down. Paul Rustchynsky, head of Evo, said that, even though the original studio was shutting down, almost everyone from the dev team was staying together. This meant that, even if they lost the work they made for Driveclub, they had all the know-how, still onboard, to rebuild it again.

    With that in mind, could you imagine a GRID with Driveclub's detailed car models, great track design, excellent handling on the sweet spot between sim and arcade, amazing lighting (full day-night cycle) and weather effects? It would blow all GRIDs, that came before it, out of the water.

    Instead, the guys that came from Evo are working on ONRUSH. Something along the lines of Motorstorm, rather than Driveclub's more serious racing. That's their plan for the arcade market. I don't see GRID coming back soon.
    Yeah i agree , i would like Evolution studios to make a new Grid game with point to point tracks all over the world than circuits.. I am PC users so i had not the chance to buy the brilliant Drive Club , i just have tested it at a friend of mine on PS4..I was excited after CM hired Evolution , i thought they will create a game like Drive club but instead we got a bad copy of Motorstorm called On Rush..So i dont think Evolution studios will make any close a new Drive Club stryle game..

    Yeah, hiring now would be far too late to have an impact on a game to be released in autumn. On the other hand, if Codies has the licence for next years WRC title and are planning ahead for that.....

    Most likely there's a new Grid title in the works that'll be released late summer/early autumn, and a new rally game planned for next year. Dirt Rally 2 would be my guess, but WRC game would be awesome.

    Would be happy to be proven wrong though :-) 
    AFAIK there was a lot of QA positions available so I think that actually would be time to get more people on testing and assuring everything's working as intended.

    @MiatakiasGR why you need to write everything in bold?
    I just see the letters better..
    1)Come on in this topic everyone speaks even for cooking recipies or whatever and your problem is i just said something about  the Grid/Toca game?
    That's why I said he's only "kind of" right. This thread has gone off the rails many times before and will, in all likelyhood, go off the rails many times more. You can talk about GRID here, if you want, but you didn't just comment on GRID, you made a request for it, and that's not to say a straight up demand. When you want to request a game, it looks better if you do it in the right place.
    2)Grid series is not exactly like the games you say (PCARS 2 , Assetto Corsa , GT series) which are to the sim side.. Grid series is simicade , for me Grid 1 might be the best game i ahve played the last 10 years , this game was so famous and loved by many gamers also had won some BAFTA awords , the target group i not the same as this of assetto corsa , pcars 2 , GT series.. Personally i would prefer a new asphalt game (either Toca or Grid) , after uninstalling the mediocre Dirt 4 i am back to the best rally game so far called Dirt Rally , i am ok with that for some time ....
    The only real difference, or possible selling point, is the physics. GRID is a simcade and the others are sims (although there are those who say GT, Forza and even PCARS are simcade as well). However, that's exactly GRID's problem: people tend to want sims. One of the first questions that pops up, almost immediately, after a racing game is announced, is: is this arcade? Not because they want they want the game to be arcade but because they want assurances that it's sim.

    GRID (even as a franchise) only won one BAFTA award, by the way, not several. It did deserve the one it won, but there really wasn't anything much like it, at the time. The GRID series hasn't been doing so well since. It was famous and loved, as you said, emphasis on the 'was'. I don't see the hunger for it now, at least not in the racing game populace at large. If they were to release a GRID game now, even if it wasn't intended to compete against those other titles I mentioned, the simple fact is people would compare it to them, anyway, and reviewers would view the simpler physics as something that the game did not get to the level of the others. You may have the intentions of making a game for a specific group, but if the market won't see it that way, you're game won't sell. In the end, it's the behavior of the market that says whether it's good or not to release a certain game. Right now, Codemasters has a much more solid foot, in the market, with DiRT than they do with GRID.
    Ok i respect this and i dont speak more about Grid game but i will be happier with any Grid / Toca game than the 3rd codemaster rally within 4 years..

  10. Do not be greedy , we got Dirt games within 3 years and no any Grid/Toca game , now its the asphalt game turning you like it or not..
    I get it, but he is kind of right, you know? These are the DiRT forums and this is the DiRTy Gossip Thread. There are GRID forums to be used to talk about GRID.

    Oh, and just because there hasn't been a GRID game in a while doesn't mean that Codemasters have to make one now or that it's even a good idea to make one now. It's not about greed, it's about the company being sensible. Look at the competition they face, on the market, when it comes to asphalt, circuit racing: Forza 7, GT Sport, Assetto Corsa, Project CARS 2. For me, PCARS 2, alone, is a GRID killer. It's GRID cranked up to eleven. Multiple disciplines, multi-class racing with an impressive selection of cars and tracks that is still expanding. There is no shortage in sim / simcade, asphalt racing games out there. It may not be worth the investment right now.

    What is why?
    Is Christine on the far left of this photo? I hope they are making a new Grid or Toca game and the new devs to give with their talent better graphics because the last 2 codies games (Dirt 4 , On rush) look pretty outdated

    About lamb in Greece we eat it on Easter like that



    Those comments are not allowed here, we want rally games, not grid or toca LOL ;p
    I hope it is for WRC gameee
    Do not be greedy , we got Dirt games within 3 years and no any Grid/Toca game on current gen (which is almost last gen) , now its the asphalt game turn you like it or not..

    About lamb in Greece we roast the lamb on carbon it on Easter like that :



    Not the best looking but very tasty..If seems to you very neaterdal style to cook a lamb a good alternative is to make it ragout (italian recipy) exactly as you make a bolognese sauce and instead of beef meat you replace it with lamb + rosmary for extra taste.. You support it with fat tagliatelle or pappardelle of eggs (fresh pasta if it is possible) In this was the lamb can be sweet too (as to make a good tomato sauce you have to add sugar).

  13. If you look at release chain it would make sense for a new GRID or Touring Car game. We have the latest DiRT game and we get the F1 game every year. That leads me to believe that it is GRIDs turn to get a release. I would love a Touring focused game, currently the market does not have any on the Next-Gen consoles.
    In fact we got 2 Dirt games in a row , now its time for new Grid game..  I like both Grid and Toca series just if it is Toca i dont want this to be an exclusive Touring focused game .. I want it to be more like Toca 3 which was included many different classes and cars and many tracks as well.. ;)

  14. Something more to add : I searched quickly on internet and i saw that WRC license historitically are not owned by same company for over 3-4 years (see in wikipedia) and Big ben has released already 4 WRC games (3 made by kylotonn and  1 by Milestone) + the weird decision of CM to release the Dirt 4 while Dirt rally was that period pretty alive and not too old and people were waiting any new content like tracks - cars , online rally mode maybe instead of a new rally game that looked condemned to fail with these rushed technology of generated tracks , looks hard that the  experienced CM team  believed that this will like to people.. The same time that new generation of consoles did not get any Grid game and they are out since 2013..
    So my thought is that they easy killed Dirt rally whicih was a game for sim lovers (so it has a specific target group) and then thought to release a simcade like game the Dirt 4 (with clearly bigger target group) with rushed generated tracks so not to spend much effort and sources , getting some money on release , then totally abandon it because are working since many months on a new WRC game?
    I speak about a row and extreme money grab strategy (and remmeber what happened in the case of Grid 2 and Grid Autosport came just a year later after communities outcry about Grid 2)
    MoneyGrabMasters could  be called then maybe! ahaha :p :#

  15. Hey rally  lovers do not get excited yet :D :p , 2 rally games were released in a row (dirt rally , dirt 4) and its turn for for an asphalt game like Toca or Grid now.. And i hope to be like that my self , codemaster has not released any Grid game on current generation (last was grid autosport for last gen and PC) and thats same it self..
