Codemasters’ next GRID game will not be released on next-gen, reports claim.
The title apparently promises more content than ever seen before in the series, with the action spread across 22 different locations and over 100 tracks.
A single player mode seeing players forging a successful career will once again feature, as will the sponsorship system. An official announcement is expected today.
The GRID brand debuted in 2008 as a successor to the TOCA Race Driver series. GRID 2 was released last year.
UPDATE: It’s official. There’s some blurb:
"GRID: Autosport aims to move the series back in line as a more authentic racing game. Set to include a more authentic handling model (more Sim than Race Driver: GRID), five distinct disciplines; Touring, Endurance, Open Wheel, Tuner and Street. Race at 22 locations (primarily circuit based) with a combined route list that totals over 100. This game is, at its heart, inspired by you guys, our core community."
And here’s a trailer:
