Following their very mediocre Racing Team Manger (sold as RTL Race Team Manager in Germany), Kalypso Media has announced a new Formula One team manager – Pole Position 2010.
Veteran fans of the genre will surely recognise a familiar sounding name as the original Pole Position, released in 1996, was one of the first Formula One manager titles and played a big part in the genre’s short-lived high in popularity towards the end of the 90s.
Pole Position 2010 is just using the familiar name though as Kalypso Media has bought the naming rights from the original creators Ascaron who went bancrupt a year ago. The new title will once again allow players to take over an existing Formula One team or start one from scratch, taking care of development, testing, setups, budgets, staff and more.
The title will obviously not come with a Formula One license, an extensive editor to replace the fantasy names will be included though. Pole Position 2010 is expected to be released this April.
