The studio behind Dirt 5 and F1 2021 is hiring people to work on its "most ambitious and biggest game" in over a decade.

This is according to a job listing (opens in new tab) (via Exputer (opens in new tab)) for a development manager which details that the UK-based studio is working on what "promises to be the most ambitious and biggest game that Codemasters has made in over a decade." 

EA is also looking for a number of other roles to be filled at Codemasters including a senior manager in engineering (opens in new tab) which states that the studio is "already hard at work concepting the next AAA project" as of August 2021, which likely means the project is still in the early development stage. 

The only other hint we get from the job adverts as to what this next project will be is the fact that in the development manager listing it is described as a "AAA racing game," although that's to be expected from the acclaimed racing studio. 

The guessing game becomes even easier when you remember that EA revealed its plan to release 'annual racing games' following its $1.2 billion acquisition of Codemasters at the start of this year. Whatever Codemasters is working on though, it’ll end up joining the likes of fellow EA racing games NFS Heat and Burnout Paradise Remastered. 

If you fancy trying out one of Codemasters games ahead of its next project, Xbox Game Pass currently has 5 of the studio's games on offer including Dirt 4, Dirt Rally, Dirt Rally 2.0, F1 2020, and Grid.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
