Codemasters releases details on upcoming F1 games

Start saving your sick days: Codemasters is working on the next generation of Formula One racing games, and the future looks fast. The software development company responsible for such favorite racing titles as DiRT, Grid and the TOCA series obtained the rights to make the game from Formula One Management, which previously licensed the rights exclusively to EA Sports and Sony.

Regardless, the expert driving Italy's newest hot hatch looks to have had
