Codemasters working on F1 racing games for Xbox 360 and Xbox One

Codemasters revealed today that the UK developer and publisher is working on two new F1 racing games. One of them is due out this fall for Microsoft's Xbox 360 and other older generation consoles, but the second, due out in 2015, will be released for the new Xbox One console.

F1 2014, will is due out October 17th for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, will feature all of the new circuts, the new turbocharged cars, and all of the driver moves in the current Formula 1 racing season. Codemasters says:

"The game also includes refined handling on a pad and a new driver evaluation system that tunes game settings to your skill level to increase accessibility – we want all of our players to race competitively, more quickly. Of course, all the veterans of the series will be able to experience the true challenge of racing this year's stunning generation of cars, featuring more explosive power delivery but less downforce, by customising your options and turning off all the assists."

However, the team is also working on F1 2015 for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. It will be released earlier in the 2015 season but will receive downloadable updates after launch. Codemasters says, "These updates will deliver 2015 content into the game as the season unfolds, ensuring you'll be competing against the same drivers and teams you watch week in and week out!"
