Dear Motorsport fans on the System Wars board!

Codemasters (DiRT, F1, GRID) has recently announced that they acquired Slightly Mad Studios (NFS Shift, Project Cars) for 30 million dollars. Both also are on their way to develop their next-gen racing/driving games (Xbox Scarlett, PS5, & PC) for 2020 and beyond.

You would think they would purchase a studio to diversify their portfolio but instead they are doubling down on one genre. Not sure if that is dumb or brilliant. Time will tell.

Makes sense.

Quite the growth for a company that started off with 2-3 dudes in a room making cassette games.

I don't know if Slightly Mad Studios will release the console or not?

@mclarenmaster18: I did some research, It appears it's not happening anymore.
