    Codemasters have pretty much hit the nail on the head with F1 2016, releasing arguably the most impressive and feature complete instalment of the F1 series of games since taking over the official licence prior to the 2010 racing season. Hot on the heals of that sucsess, the British studio have announced plans to develop a paid F1 2016 app for iOS, tvOS and Android devices.


    The recent Formula One share purchase by Liberty Media aside, the sport has often been slow to pick up on new media and public relations activities in its illustrious history, preventing the development and distribution of more innovative ways to tap into the wide global audience of racing fans whom may wish to consume more Formula One related content outside of Grand Prix weekends. Codemasters have done a reasonable job of feeding gamers FIFA like yearly releases, but activity in other areas has been sadly lacking with the Formula One licence. This is about to change as Codemasters very recently revealed the intention to develop and release a paid F1 2016 app for iOS, tvOS and Android devices, brining the officially licenced F1 games franchise to mobile devices for the first time.

    Details of F1 2016 mobile game have yet to be revealed, however with the ever increasing development of such technologies the game shouldn't differ greatly from its PC and console cousins.

    "Featuring all the official teams, drivers and circuits, including the brand new Baku City Circuit, from this exciting season, you’ll be able to enjoy the thrills of the world’s most popular motorsport, with console quality visuals that you can play wherever you are."

    Does the idea of F1 2016 on a mobile device appear to you? How much time do you spend on games away from a PC or console? Let us know in the comments section below!

    Not really interested in this personally because I don't do mobile gaming in general, but having a quality mobile racing game with a real motorsport licence out there can only be good for the genre.

    Guaranteed to be riddled with micro-transactions like all mobile games.
