Am I alone in thinking that they shouldn't release a game every year? Instead, make the games every time there is a major regulation change. Then just make all the yearly liveries DLC packs?
If they continue yearly releases, they'll get Madden syndrome and just get stale.
Just a thought.

You're definitely not. I'd love to see that as well. Much like ACC gave us a 2019 update to the game and added a track and current year liveries for free, it would be great to see the F1 series follow suit.

Obviously money is the determining factor here though, so I wouldn't expect their current model to change any time soon.

they could also just sell it as DLC for like 5 bucks maybe ten if like this year 2 tracks are new

Off topic: the rfactor 2 1979 mod ( long time a go from rfactor 1) take it in VR on mid-Ohio all the monny worth. You never think on 2019

Yeah, I also believe the license is probably too expensive for them to do an upgrade version to make F1 2019 into F1 2020. I think they will want players to buy an all new game.

They are just finally dipping into DLC now, wonder how much they will go down that path for F1 2020. I would love older tracks, but let's see.

I'm actually really glad they are still updating this game now, isn't it almost a year that the game has been out? Usually yearly games get a few patches in the first few months of the release and then that's it. I think this sets a good precedence for the next version of the game, makes me more confident that they will support it through the life cycle of the game.

Indeed codemasters must pay a lot for each season, and each year, since 2017, they've been adding one or 2 new classic cars. That's not a lot. Next year I hope more of these cars (especially from the mid 80s) and/or classic tracks. Why not adding all the content of f1 2013 which did not make it in the next classic iterations of the games?

Licensing this content must be expensive too but, considering the current quality of the game, I'm sure it would be a huge interesting addition.

The fact that Codemasters is still updating the game is something very positive but it makes me think if they're going to use F1 2019 as a base for the 2020 game with only minor changes to update the game to the new season. At least they have a separate team to upgrade F1 2019 while most of the employees works on F1 2020.

I hope for F1 2020 Codemasters include classic tracks, it feels weird sometimes to drive old cars on modern tracks, and they rebuild (laser scan maybe) the modern tracks because it feels like they're using the same tracks models since F1 2010 in some cases and there is a quality difference between newest tracks like Paul Ricard and the old ones.

I have F1 2019 and enjoy the game for what it provides. I currently just do offline quick races and time trials. I hope the next version(whenever it is) of this type of game will provide us with 360 degree VR capability to make it more immersive. Right now I use F1 2019 with VORPX which is not bad in 3D, but is still not really a true 360 degree VR which many of us are looking for. I am so used to and enjoy many of the other popular VR racing games.

I think it'd be really beneficial if Codies took a year out, released a visual upgrade patch to update liveries, team logos etc, to give time to really update the game going in to 2021. I highly doubt this will happen due to financial reasons, plus the two new tracks that are dropping this year. But it's a thought.
