Codies' F1 browser game announced

Staffing up.

Codemasters is hiring for a new, original browser-based Formula One game to be developed at its Southam, Warwickshire studio.

The as-yet-unnamed game will focus on accessibility "thanks to an innovative design approach to car control". It'll offer a "persistence and depth of gameplay for a mainstream online gaming audience".

"Formula One is incredibly popular in many countries around the world, particularly in countries where online gaming is either already big or rapidly growing such as India, Brazil, Korea and China, the potential is clear" said vice president and general manager for Codemasters Online David Solari

"We have proven F1 is a major games brand and what we have planned will build upon that".

No release date was mentioned.

You can help make the game, if you like - Codemasters has got empty jobs with your name on.

Last year Codemasters released F1 2010 on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 to critical and commercial success. A follow-up is planned for this year.
