Formula 1 game franchise to do one last lap with the Xbox 360 and PS3 in F1 2014

Formula 1 is still a very niche sport around the world, but like the technology involved in sending those aerodynamic beauties around the track, the annual video game has been at the forefront of its genre, specifically racing simulations since its first iteration in 2010. Fast forward to 2014, and we were wondering what platforms Codemasters would be releasing its new game on, which Codemasters has conveniently answered in a blog post yesterday. Predictably named ‘F1 2014‘, this new game will only be coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 in mid-October; the next-gen consoles will have to wait till 2015 for their game. Check out the announcement trailer below:

The blog post goes on to elaborate on next year’s release, which we mentioned will be coming to Xbox One and PS4. Traditionally, the F1 games have come out in October, which is unfortunately at the tail end of the Formula 1 Championship in real life. Codemasters has said they will be changing this in 2015 with a release that will come earlier in the actual Formula 1 season and will be updating the game to keep up with what is actually happening in the real-life season. For more details on F1 2014 and next year’s release (we’re going to go out on a limb and guess it’ll be called ‘F1 2015‘), be sure to visit the blog post.

F1 2014 is going the be released on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 17 in Europe, and October 21 in North America. The unnamed F1 game will be released sometime in 2015 on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Are you excited for F1 2014? Or are you more excited about next year’s release? Let us know your thoughts.
