The lucrative F1 licence is heading to internet browsers courtesy of a new development team.
Described as a ‘service-based online game’, Codies is recruiting the team specifically for the project.
The new team will be based at its Warwickshire HQ and available positions can be found on the Codemasters website.
“F1 is incredibly popular in many countries, particularly in places where online gaming is either already big or rapidly growing such as India, Brazil, Korea and China, the potential is clear” said Codemasters Online VP David Solari.
“We have proven F1 is a major games brand and what we have planned will build upon that”.
F1 2010 became Codies’ most successful game when it hit shelves last September, and was the 17th best selling game of 2010.
The browser title will be more accessible and aimed at a mainstream audience.
