    Codemasters today announced it has agreed to acquire racing simulation specialists, Slightly Mad Studios. The acquisition will cement Codemasters’ position as a world-leading games developer and publisher of racing videogames and expands its portfolio to include the award-winning Project CARS, together with an unannounced Hollywood blockbuster title. Frank Sagnier will remain CEO of Codemasters Group plc which now includes Slightly Mad Studios and Ian Bell will retain his position of Founder and CEO of Slightly Mad Studios. Codemasters now employs 700 people globally with offices including London, Birmingham, Southam and Runcorn.

    But I think now we can see decent Project CARS games, wasn't a fan when I bought the first one, it didn't seem like a good simulator to me. It was sort of a simulator/arcade hybrid, keeping the worst qualities of both.

    I guess, swing and a miss.

    Anyway, since you go all serious, I don't really care that much about Project CARS, never did, Codemasters is obviously not someone new and could provide good support to the developers to create more and better games. It's probably a win-win situation.

    Indeed. I'm more of a Gran Turismo kind of guy myself. But here's hoping.
