Last month, it was announced that Sony was shutting down Evolution Studios, the studio responsible for MotorStorm and Driveclub. As is typical with studio closures, that means the employees of Evolution Studios would be searching for a new job. Thankfully, Codemasters has stepped up.
Starting on April 25th, the team at Evolution Studios will become a part of Codemasters. This puts them in good hands, as the developer and publisher has a long history with racing games with a number of running franchises including GRID, DiRT, and F1.
Mick Hocking, who co-founded Evolution Studios, will take on the role of VP Product Development at Codemasters. The Evolution team will now be working on multi-platform titles, though whether that will be on an existing franchise or something new has yet to be revealed.
