Codemasters making official Formula One game

Codemasters, makers of racing titles DiRT and the upcoming GRID are adding yet another racing game to their repertoire. The company has recently acquired an official license to make an authentic Formula One title. This worldwide deal gives Codemasters the rights to feature all Grand Prix circuits, teams, cars, and driver likenesses. The first game based off the FIA Formula One World Championship is expected to launch in 2009. That's the first, which means there's probably going to be multiple titles down the line.
