Codemasters to focus only on racing games in future

Codemasters has confirmed the closure of its Malta studio as it switches its focus exclusively to racing games.

The Malta studio was opened just last year, focusing on mobile titles and also the development of Overlord Fellowship of Evil, however both ventures pretty much failed, meaning that it's now planning to stick to what it feels it does best.

“While it's been great to explore projects outside of racing, we know that our hearts belong to racing in all its many glorious forms,” Codemasters told Eurogamer.

“The success of Dirt Rally's Early Access programme has been incredible, F1 2015 was very successful reaching number one in many territories, we've recently announced that Micro Machines will come to mobile and we have a strong road map ahead of us that keeps racing as its razor focus.

“With Battle Decks' development complete, we're saying goodbye to Malta and looking to fold talent from its 11-person team into our most successful studios here in the UK as we double-down on racing to develop future titles that will demonstrate our absolute commitment to the category.”

Codemasters has only released two games on current generation hardware, in Grid Autosport and F1 2015. There's currently no word of its next titles for PS4 and Xbox One.
