EA's acquisition of Codemasters is now complete! EA states it's now positioned to bring gamers a "regular cadence" of gaming content.
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??
eh? (confused). Not sure I understood Sony Loss here.
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,
When they said, Take Two would buy Codemaster, I was hoping to see a new era of games with new features and stuff like an f1 series in VR but since it's EA lets say that the old Cut and paste era is resume and cemented in hard concrete for many years to come. Sad :-(
I think they are buying out studios just to get the licenses for titles. Most of the studios they've ever aquired are no more.
I wonder if any of the games that will be created will only be controller based, or will they add steering wheel option. That is something ive noticed over the last few years with NFS games, they do not allow the use of steering wheels.
EA, the place where devs go to die.
Normally I'd be upset because of EA reputation but I can't remember the last game I even bought or played from this studio. Oh well good for them. I'm sure they're in good hands. Lol
They couldn't be in worse hands tbh
Codemasters have sold out. So disappointing. I might never buy another codemasters game out of principle now
To be fair the writing was on the wall for Codemasters after that god awful MicroMachines game they tried to palm off on console players. Ripped straight from the mobile game which wasn’t great... Why they didn’t just remaster MicroMachines V3 I don’t know 🤷🏼♂️
