Codemasters is very busy working on their much anticipated first official Formula One game for various platforms. With F1 being a major series, many people are very interested to get updates on the project.
To keep people posted, Codemasters planned to have a regular game development blog, updating us on their progress. The team has met countless of drivers, engineers and other interesting people, good for countless of interesting stories. These will remain untold though as the FOM has denied approval of the blog as the following message has been posted in the Codemasters forums:
I’m really sorry guys, but unfortunately our first blog has not been approved and we will be unable to release it. This situation may change in the New Year, but for the time being our blog will not be happening.
Looks like a major series license has more disadvantages than just the hefty price tag, preventing the developers to update the community about their progress.
