codemasters Codemasters to Focus on Racing Games

Codemasters has announced plans to drop its shooter franchises and focus all development efforts on its racing games.

“The focus is an exclusive one, there are no other genre properties in development at this time; racing is everything. We are also increasing headcount across the operation, which currently employs around 700. We are expanding the teams by a further 100+ development positions, which are opening over the course of the year across the sites.”

Thanks to Gamasutra for the heads up!
