Have you ever played Dirt, F1 or Grid car games? Yep, the developer, namely Codemasters, is one of the most famous racing game developers thanks to his game work in the last 10 years. The British studio is also rumored to have been acquired by Take-Two Interactive, one of the major game publishing companies that owns Rockstar and 2K in its company.
Reported by Business Wire, the number of contracts for the purchase of the British game studio reached 994 million US dollars, or around 759 million euros. Of course, this is a very large number. In fact, Take-Two also took the initiative to share profits with Codemasters like other game studios under its auspices.
“We’re excited to be recommending this deal to the higher-ups at Codemasters,” said Strauss Zelnick of Take-Two Interactive. He also added that he wanted to welcome the top ranks at Codemasters in the big family at Take-Two Interactive.
The inclusion of Codemasters into Take-Two Interactive can be an interesting concern considering that his work on vehicles in the game is very realistic. It could be, now all game franchises on Take-Two Interactive will get a quality upgrade. We can also see the appearance of cars and vehicles that appear very real in GTA, Borderlands, or even Red Dead Redemption games in the future.
The news about the purchase of game companies is certainly a concern in the gaming industry in general. Moreover, at the end of 2020 we will meet a new generation of consoles. Companies must of course prepare their best work to welcome the new era of video games that will come in the near future.
Previously, Microsoft had also announced the purchase of Bethesda and ZeniMax as a family of game developers on the Xbox. This also allows them to get exclusive game series such as Fallout, Doom, Wolfenstein, and Skyrim in their exclusive game series.
So, can’t you wait to see the appearance of the latest Codemasters car game that has joined Take-Two Interactive?
