The agreement will enable 10tacle studios AG to produce games using the Ferrari brand name and products, and the company plans to work closely with the Italian sports car manufacturer to develop a number of games for PC and consoles.

"The expansion of our racing portfolio is an important part of our strategy for growth. Ferrari is synonymous with automotive excellence in both sports and racing cars. A license to use the Ferrari brand name and cars is the best a computer games developer in this field can acquire, said 10tacle studios AG chairman Michele Pes. "We will do our very best to recreate the passionate experience of driving a Ferrari as realistically as possible."

10tacle studios AG have previously published a number of hugely acclaimed racing titles from SimBin, including GT Legends and more recently GTR 2. Although not having announced a developer for future Ferrari licensed titles, SimBin would appear to be the obvious choice.
