F1 2013 will release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on October 4, 2013, Codemasters has announced.

The launch of this year's F1 game comes two weeks later than normal. Codemasters' three previous F1 titles each released during the third week of September in their respective years.

The later date could have something to do with the release of GTA 5, which launches two weeks earlier on September 17. Nevertheless, Codemasters still appears confident about launching in close proximity to the upcoming open-worlder, telling VideoGamer.com that F1 is "going to hold its own" against Rockstar's epic.

Two editions of F1 2013 will be available at launch: The Standard Edition, featuring the full game plus a 1980s pack, and the Classic Edition, featuring all of the Standard Edition content and bonus 1990s content and Classic Tracks pack.
