Codemasters Group Holdings PLC (LON:CDM) has confirmed that the latest instalment of its F1 racing video game franchise, F1 2020, will be released on 10 July for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia.

The developer said there had been “minimal disruption” to the games development team as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and that everything was “on schedule” for the release date.

Codemasters said F1 2020 will introduce a new game mode, My Team, which will allow players to create their F1 team and take their place alongside the established 2020 line-up, with a new driver-manager experience offering what it said was “a unique insight into the world of F1”.

The game will also re-introduce two-player split-screen alongside new options designed to help new players adjust the challenge to match their expertise.

“F1 2020 promises to be our biggest and most innovative title to date. We’re bringing new game modes to our core simulation players alongside accessible features that will appeal to the casual racing fan”, said Codemasters chief executive Frank Sagnier.

“With sporting events currently on hold around the world, our F1 game is seeing incredible engagement as professional drivers, esports players and celebrities race online in the F1 Esports Virtual Grand Prix series, replicating the original F1 calendar”, he added.
