It looks like Codemasters is gearing up for a new project at it’s Cheshire Studio, previously responsible for DiRT 5.
That’s according to a job advert spotted by Exputer for a Development Manager position at the studio. The job listing reads: “Under the guidance of the Development Director and with support from the production team, you will help handle production of the studios’ next key project – which promises to be the most ambitious and biggest game that Codemasters has made in over a decade!”
It’s very vague, of course, but the studio has plenty in its history that means it’s worth getting excited over. Former members of the Evolution Studios formed Codemasters Cheshire. In their former guise, they were responsible for both the MotorStorm and the Driveclub games on the PlayStation.
DiRT 5 is nothing to sniff at either, of course as an excellent entry in its own series. Electronic Arts bought up the Cheshire outfit when they bought the rest of Codemasters earlier this year. They paid a cool $1.2 billion USD for the British developers.
It sounds like Codemasters have no intention of slowing down its racing output either. Back in July we were introduced to GRID Legends, promising a “next generation motorsport story” in 2022.
