Codemasters has announced Grid 2, sequel to 2008’s Race Driver: Grid. It’s now in full development after two years of pre-production, and will have an “expansive” career mode.
Clive Moody, Executive Producer, said, “Grid’s back and we’re going to make street, track and road racing exciting again. The core design philosophy for Grid 2 is that we treat the race as a character, not a consequence of simply putting cars on tracks. Everything that goes into the game impacts on that second-to-second, in the moment, blockbuster drama – the feel and personality of the race. We’re pushing boundaries once again with what can be accomplished in the genre via new tools, technology and innovations. In single-player, split-screen and online, the next-generation of the EGO Game Technology Platform will power graphics, AI, handling and damage advancements that will immerse players in the racing experience like never before. Like its predecessor, Grid 2 will put the sheer thrill and adrenaline rush of the race at the heart of the experience. It’s what we call Total Race Day Immersion.”
That’s a mouthful. Grid 2 will be out in the summer of 2013 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
