Just another studio for EA to feed on and suck the life out of.

I sure hope they learned their lesson...

Sad but true...it was nice knowing Codemasters

Consumers are pulling life out themselves by supporting it. EA does this because it "works". You are always given a choice, but you don't use it. In COD: Warzone I don't see a reason why I should spend money outside a Battle Pass (10 bucks) ... really pointless.

So what do you do when you're in my position where there is no other alternative when it comes an authentic F1 racing experience? EA has a monopoly it now.

Hard truth. So much garbage from EA but my whole social circle was all "broo did you get (insert EA junk here)" then a week later they realised the game is trash.

But EA was already laughing its way to the bank.

Good riddance. Codemasters has been on my boycott list since they printed a pack of lies on the advertising and packaging for Operation Flashpoint:Dragon Rising.

Man, they ended up with a lot of really good devs. They got everyone from Drive Club. What a huge loss to Sony. That was a bad call.

Evolution studios was incredibly talented. I miss the Motorstorm series so much. Can you imagine Motorstorm Apocalypse on PS5??

solideagle52d ago

eh? (confused). Not sure I understood Sony Loss here.

SlothLordPootus52d ago

When Sony closed Evolution studios a lot of the talent went to Codemasters. Sony lost a lost of good developers, and the best of the best are hard to come by.

Not to mention, a lot of those Evolution folks had already transferred from Studio Liverpool when they were wrongly shut down. Also, as mentioned below, the Codemasters games will now go onto GamePass so this is a bit of a loss to Sony.

Their loss, and now EA's gain from this acquisition.

More content for Gamepass as well

codemasters took the money and ran. EA only bought Code masters to stop Take-two from buying,
