It would be fair to say that the Codemasters Formula One franchise has seen some significant improvements in recent years, with the 2018 effort from the British studio arguably representing their finest effort with the series to date. Benefiting from increased offline depth with new career mode and development features in recent years, Codemasters have confirmed they plan to take things a step further once again for the 2019 release.
Set to feature the long awaited ability to create custom liveries within the game, F1 2019 looks set to be the most customisable out of the box configuration that has been seen in the long running and hugely popular franchise.
“We are absolutely delighted to be able to release F1® 2019 earlier in the Formula 1® Season, so that the game can be played and enjoyed at the same time that the real-world championship picture is starting to form,” said Paul Jeal, F1® Franchise Director at Codemasters. “Our close relationship with Formula 1® has played a major part in achieving this key objective for the franchise. That in addition to our near two-year development cycle, has allowed us to develop some exciting new features and other firsts for the franchise that we can’t wait to share with our community in the coming months.”
“The exciting collaboration with Ross Brawn and Pat Symonds has created new levels of player personalisation in F1® 2019 through the inclusion of the new regulation car,” said Lee Mather, F1® 2019 Game Director at Codemasters. “With the continued growth of the F1® series, it’s great to give players more control and new levels of car and driver customisation and we can’t wait to talk more about this alongside the new multiplayer features in the coming months.”
Having been in development for almost two years now, F1 2019 could well be a very impressive piece of gaming software when it releases around Austrian Grand Prix time later this year.
F1 2019 is set to release on June 28th, 2019.
