Back in late 2015 the team over at British development studio Codemasters promised Formula One fans greater influence over future developments to the game franchise, now the team are starting to make good that promise with the launch of a new fans survey aimed at gathering opinions for development of the 2016 iteration of the game. F1 2015 launched last year amid much fanfare around the new graphics and game engine improvements pitched to take the title to the "next level" and offer a marked improvement over previous releases of the F1 game series. Sadly Codemasters failed to deliver on expectations and many fans were left feeling somewhat short changed with the high number of game breaking bugs and confusing development choices that left out many core aspects of the game people felt should be included on day one release, such as a robust career mode, safety car inclusion and regular in season updates to liveries / drivers and visual changes. To their credit Codemasters acknowledged where the new title failed to meet expectations and towards the end of 2015 worked hard at improving community communications by hiring new Social Media Manager Jenny to improve interaction and gather more fan feedback for the F1 series of games. Late into 2015 Jenny promised fans greater interaction with the development of the new 2016 F1 game, seen by many fans as Codemasters final attempt to release an F1 game worthy of the pinnacle open wheel series in the world. Work has already begun to interact further with a recent opportunity for fans to come over to the teams Birmingham studio and enjoy a sneak peak of the new Work in Progress title and offer opinions about the game. With over 100 applications the team at Codemasters managed to whittle down the final number to 8 individuals who attended the sessions over the 14th - 16th March. If you were one of the lucky attendees, please post here at RaceDepartment and tell us about your day! Codemasters have now launched a fans survey available for anyone to contribute (without the need for registration) aimed at helping the studio "understand how you like to play F1 2015 and how you’d like to see F1 games progress.
