Codemasters has confirmed to MCV sister site
that it is to take over Sega’s UK Racing Studio, as
earlier this week.
In a statement, the firm described the move to step in and save the studio – the closure of which Develop reported just over two weeks ago – as ‘an agreement that facilitates accelerated growth’ for Codemasters’ work in the racing genre.
At its HQ in Southam, close to the Sega Racing team in Solihull, Codemasters already hosts a large development studio responsible for the likes of Colin McRae and Race Driver.
