Codemasters Working On New Grid, Dirt And Flashpoint

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising

If you've been wondering what U.K.-based developer Codemasters is working on these days, I've got news for you. First, in spite of an Indian company purchasing half of the company, Codemasters is not re-locating to palatial offices in downtown Bangladesh. They're staying in the United Kingdom, and they're even hiring more people to work on their current slate of games.

“We noticed that straight away – forums telling us that we were going to be packing up and moving to India,”  Gavin Cheshire, Codemasters VP of studios, told Develop.

“I can safely say that this is absolutely not the case. There are obviously some ‘strategic’ moves for both partners, but in terms of development at the level we’re at, it’s very much about Reliance investing in our skills and abilities over here in the UK.”

Those English studios will be working on a new Flashpoint game as well as new Grid and Dirt.

“In Southam it’s full steam ahead with the next iteration in our Flashpoint series, as well as the next Dirt and Grid. It’ll be interesting to see how it all pans out," Cheshire said.
