That there's going to be a new F1 game this season isn't at all surprising, but getting a confirmation is always nice. That's exactly what we've got today, as F1 2018 has been announced for Xbox One, PS4 and PC with a scheduled launch date of August 24.
There's no further details, no screenshots or trailers at this point, just the new logo. The blurb sounds like we're going to get a little more of everything that we already have in F1 2017, which is no bad thing, and it'll most likely be Xbox One X enhanced out of the box this time around.
With E3 round the corner hopefully it won't be long before we get to see it in action, but given how good last year's game was, I'm really looking forward to this, as I'm sure many other racing fans are.

cant wait.. 2017 was really good.
Is the ability to overtake included as DLC for this?
Fix you main page tagline for this article. It says: "The lights go out for F1 2018 for Xbox and PC this August" I don't think you mean it is being turned off. It should be "The lights >> go on << for F1...
Paul, the light here resembles the starting lights in motorsport races. The race starts when all the red lights are off.
I know what I meant :)
I thought the same initially but then I realized the lights turn off and then the race starts.
