Codies, Please don't sell to Take Two

Recommended Posts

https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/codemasters-confirms-its-in-talks-with-take-two-over-a-possible-sale/

Of all the companies you could sell the series rights to, Take Two and EA are the worst of the worst. Take Two especially has been taking the p*** recently with their horrendous consumer unfriendly practices. Full priced games with unskippable ads, bugged releases that don't get fixed, zero effort copy/pastes of entire games (Switch version of NBA 2K21 is literally just a copy/paste of 2K20, which itself was a copy/paste of 2K19). Selling the F1 series to Take Two will kill the franchise, I'm sure of it. They don't care about making good video games, they just want us to empty our pockets.

omg yeah just saw the news surprised the hell out of me although i don't think it it's as much as codemasters giving the licence rather than take 2 literally buying codemasters so be like when codemasters brought slightly mad studios

It’s a terrible idea, of course they’ll sell. Codemasters isn’t exactly known for turning down a buck. So, get get your credit cards out boys! 🤑

Codies isnt selling the series, codemasters and the studios they own is what is being potentially bought so codemasters will still be making all the games they do now

I am not sure. I liked GTA, Red dead and Mafia series but everything is dead now. On the other hand CM needs much more polishing to be flawless racing leader and maybe somebody else can force it.

Microsoft would be better I guess, because Xbox was always mostly racing console. With racing games from CM, Xbox will be racer dream. T2 can only add more ads and other useless live service stuff.

Yeah, I misunderstood the article a little, but the sentiment stands.

Codies doesn't shove unskippable ads down your throat though

Take two have probably just seen the increase in racing games being played due to lockdown and thought "we'll have some of that". I'm hoping that should the takeover happen, codies will remain to function as it does but maybe with an increased budget, allowing them to polish the game more effectively in the 'short' time frame between iterations. Also, maybe some investment in the AI would be good... Let me dream ok 😂

Take Two make some great games, look at how much value for money GTA5 has been, so did CM... years ago!

Currently CM isnt much better than EA in my opinion, My friends and I fell foul of the Grid 2019 money grab and looks like Dirt 5 is on a par to that!

Hopefully T2 wil purge some of the management and give us the games we deserve!

It's hard to get a read on T2, on one hand they allow Rockstar this long leash where they work on their franchises for years(and it pays off).

On another hand they are really predatory with their sports games...

 

F1 2020 has a lot more customization and microtransactions than previous games, that might have caught T2 eyes... Expect it to get a lot worst if the take over is completed.

Assuming another group of developers were already working on next year's game then could this still be released under the 2K label?

Well played, CM. They acquired the F1 license for years to come and pumped up the value of the company by doing so, only to sell it to Take Two. This is no jab, like I said - well played.

Nice, F1 can become a casino game with some racing as a distraction.

"Replace front wing"

"$2,99"

Come to think of it, it might be good for the random lobbies...

this is Shameful. Don't end up like 2k sports because they never improve the games over the years. The f1 series needs a lot of improvements that go towards simulation

Well, it was nice to enjoy the F1 games while it lasted, but soon enough, we're gonna go down the same route that happened to the NBA, NFL and WWE games.

 

You really disappoint me Codies. You have betrayed every single person who has ever bought one of your games.
