F1 2012 loses Grand Prix mode

Written by David Stellmack

Tweet from Hood leads to official word

Following a somewhat cryptic Tweet from Codemasters’ Creative Director, Steve Hood, over the weekend, Codemasters has confirmed that the Grand Prix mode that allowed players to create and compete in a full F1 season as an official F1 driver (or what was known as Grand Prix mode) has been removed from F1 2012.

The news, of course, did not sit well with fans that are just learning that Codemasters was forced to drop the Grand Prix mode. It has since been replaced by a “Quick Race” mode that allows players to jump in and start racing right away, but you can’t create a series of races.

Players will still be able to compete in the full F1 World Championship, but only as an official F1 driver, which has been available in previous F1 title releases from Codemasters.

As to the reason for the change, Codemasters has been cryptic, but it clearly seems to involve licensing restrictions of some sort. F1 2012 will arrive for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on September 18th in North America, and September 21st in Europe. The demo is already out for the Xbox 360, with the PlayStation 3 demo expected to arrive for download today.
