Codemasters should do an IndyCar game

Recommended Posts

You have the expertise in Formula One, so why not extend the open-wheel line up with an IndyCar game.

That was back when the American open wheel racing series was still split. Unfortunately they went with the least popular of the two series. Mostly cause they had the trump card, the Indy 500. Now that the two are one again. They could pretty easily do it and make a decent game of it. Indycar Series management would be a million times easier to work with. And since the series is a spec series. They'd only have to make one car. Two engines. Then it's just a matter of making the tracks of which most of the ovals tracks are in the vault from the previous game anyways. It really just comes to mostly the road courses. There is definitely a demand for it. Would it be block buster? Probably not. But they could make money on a good one hit wonder that is open for Modder's to build on it in the future.

They did. It wasn't particularly good: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IndyCar_Series_(video_game)

Nowadays, with a much smaller potential audience than F1, it's hard to believe it would be worth their effort.

Thanks bud! I did not know that. But the past is the past. Now is time to get back into the arena and do it one more time!

Sorry but expertise is not a word I would use to describe codemasters ability to develop f1 games. Codemasters is an irony in itself! Nearly 10 years into the series and we still have bugs from the very first game.

However, it's a good idea to get them to go off to pastures new, perhaps then we could have a different developer take on f1 and show us how the game should be.
