The future of Grid

Codemasters are good at doing racing, just not so good at the game part. Just look how many times they've had to be told to put really obvious things in. Like rear view mirror in GAS and lobbies with AI players in the latest game. I also wonder why Spa and Bathurst don't feature in GRID 2019. Did they think 'hey, what were the best tracks from our previous games? How about we just don't put them into the new game for no reason?'

Are you kidding me? there have been riots in the past when Bathhurst was left out of a game and Spa is the single most popular track.

Maybe we weren't as paranoid as we thought with some of their previous moves to destroy their own games. For reputation reasons maybe the powers that be will allow those tracks in F1 but no other Codemasters game.

I'd like to see Codemasters crowdfund a Game called "Lacetti" and make that the next Grid title. I'd definitely throw £50 at it as a gamble. It worked with Project Cars so why not with a Lacetti led Grid game.

Edit: 18:08: Shadow of the Tomb Raider was the game with Ray Tracing and Battlefield V also has it. RDR2 has Raymarching which is also a neat effect for all those atmospheric goodies.

Temps in my room are finally down, but still no gaming for me.

Need to get out of bed @ 4 am for work.   :classic_unsure:

Longest time without gaming for me besides the time we are on vacation.  :classic_biggrin:

Bathurst isn't an F1 track though. Silverstone is an F1 track and is in the game. So why no Spa or Bathurst? Like you say, I can only think they were trying to destroy their own game.

would understand if they dont want to fork out for licenses but then why only one sprint track, why no chicago, cost of licensing was just an excuse at launch to not bother to give the game any chance,  its like all the budget went on alonso and they just had to kick the game out the door and move on.

I referred to Bathurst because the exclusion of that one has been an issue in the past with one game although it might not have been a Codemasters game. But excluding Spa is completely ridiculous, back in Grid 1 we walked that track to learn every corner.
