Codemasters confirmed that F1 2014 will be released on October 17 in Europe and on October 21 in North America for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
In the official press release posted at their website, Codemasters said that they are working on two new Formula 1 titles ? one on old gen, the other on new gen.
?Drawing upon all our experience in developing Formula 1 titles down the years, F1 2014 recreates this year?s incredible season featuring all the seismic changes to the sport, including new turbocharged cars, new circuits plus all the driver moves,? said Luke Spring, Community Manager at Codemasters.
Aside from the all the seismic changes, Codemasters said that the game also includes refined handling on a pad and a new driver evaluation system. This refined handling tunes game settings to players? skill level to increase accessibility. The company said that this is made as they want all of their players to race competitively, more quickly.
?Of course, all the veterans of the series will be able to experience the true challenge of racing this year?s stunning generation of cars, featuring more explosive power delivery but less downforce, by customising your options and turning off all the assists,? Spring said.
Moreover, Stephen Hood, Creative Director on F1 introduced some of the headline changes in the sport and the game.
Hood said that their team had made a dramatic shift in the sport. They have implemented the largest shake up in the rules and regulations for a very long time plus he said that the new power units provide a very different kind of challenge, for both driver and team.
?By delivering all of these changes, F1 2014 will make for an exciting and refreshingly different experience. Additionally, with the new driver evaluation system analysing each player?s skill level and suggesting appropriate game settings, plus re-graded difficulty levels including a brand new Very Easy setting,? Hood added.
Meanwhile, aside from the F1 2014, Codemasters is also preparing for the new-gen F1 2015. The game will launch earlier in the Formula One season and then go onto receive live digital updates.
?We?re incredibly excited about new-gen F1 and we know you are too. We?re not yet ready to reveal everything about it yet, but we?ll have a lot more info to share once F1 2014 launches this October,? Codemasters finally said.
