Ok this was not where I wanted them to go, I was hoping they would join RockStar and work on GTA 6 - to give that game an amazing Driving feel, with unreal in-car views, But I am super happy they found a home..

DriveClub really did some amazing things, the weather effects, especially the rain on the windshield effect was some of the best rain I've ever seen in a video game, and While a lot of people hated on the racing it was actually done really well.

They also had amazing graphics and some of the best in-car renders I have ever seen.

Bringing their talent to CodeMasters is going to be a match made in heaven, As GRID 1 was an amazing racing game...

They will probably do some amazing things there / I'm super excited to see what racing game they will make together.. will probably be amazing.

This is some Awesome News for us Racing fans..

Sorry they didn't cater to your specific desire? I'm really not sure why they didn't run it by you first.

@ Otter X

What? ... Are you serious... Did you even read what I said..

I made a small joke comment about wanting them to go to Rockstar so GTA 6 would have amazing driving and this is what you say...

I guess people really don't read past the first 2 lines...

Guess you missed the part where I said super excited they found a home...

Now that I see the 4 disagrees I guess there are a few people who don't read past 2 lines...LoL (wow)

-But yeah to answer your question.. -I don't know why they didn't run it by me first, I would have told them we would love to have you guys here at Rockstar..

-oh well, all in all still amazing news..

@Crazyglues Yea sorry, I see that now. I usually don't read walls of text if I read nonsense in the first paragraph. My bad.

Forn3019d ago

This is great news. I'm excited to see what Evolution will do next.

Crazyglues3019d ago

Yeah super excited to see what they do, it's a perfect fit with CodeMasters being such an amazing racing car developer studio.

Finally some really cool news.

I thought folks here said that most of them were placed in other Sony studios.

Great news, now that can make pretty racing games with awesome game play.

Crimzon3019d ago

Folks here also said that the huge amount of layoffs at the studio last year were perfectly normal. Folks here lie a lot.

Stogz3018d ago

Folks here also used Fable Legends as an X1 exclusive when making all their 2016 game lists, but when it was cancelled everyone said they were happy because it looked bad. You're right! People do lie a lot here...

TwoForce3019d ago

Well, we never know. But nonetheless, it good to see them join Codemaster, because Codemaster have a lot of potential to make a really good racing game with Evo members joined them. What Evo done to Driveclub was amazing, so I can't wait for this.

freshslicepizza3019d ago

and best of all more people will be able to enjoy what they offer since codemasters is third party. their next game will also likely come to the pc, which to me is great news.

Kribwalker3019d ago

I also believe folks here called out MS stating they should be like Sony and when they close down a studio they'd still keep the employees....

On topic

I'm interested to see what they'll work on next

rainslacker3018d ago

Sony themselves said they were going to move some of them to other studios.

Codemasters appears to have recruited the core team from Evolution. I'm not sure what that consists of since "core" varies from studio to studio.

It's unreasonable to assume that codemasters would have hired on the entire staff, since that would be redundant for them unless they plan on creating a new studio out of them.
