Codemasters won ‘Best Racing Game of the Year’ at The TIGA Games Industry Awards for F1 2016 back in November…and they’ve just had a great team photo taken with the award right here at the Custard Factory!
The annual awards – which was held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London – are run by TIGA, the trade association that represents the video game industry, and is one of the video game industry’s most prestigious nights of the year.
The talented team picked up the award for their brilliant eighth instalment of the official Formula One franchise, which was released back on 19 August 2016 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Speaking about winning the award, Codemasters’ Executive Producer on the F1 franchise, Ian Flatts, said: “This award is a testament to all the hard work put in by the team during the development of F1 2016. It is especially pleasing to receive the award from such a respected association as TIGA, which is means the game is well thought of by our industry peers.
“The success is all down to the vast talent that we have on the F1 team, right from the main core of the team here in the Digbeth studio through to people that we also have working on the game in our offices in Leamington and Kuala Lumpur.
“All the creativity and hard work that the team has put in has resulted in a game that we are truly proud of.”
Oh, it’s worth noting that the even more successful F1 2017 has since been released – so we fully expect Codemasters to be nominated for further awards at the event next year. Fingers crossed.
In other exciting Codemasters news, we are especially looking forward to the highly-anticipated F1 2018, as a few members of the team recently made a special time-lapse video on top of our roof to see how the sky changes over a 24 hour period – which they will be incorporating into the tenth instalment of the franchise.

Keep up the fantastic work, Codemasters! 👏
