Codemasters has announced ‘Race Driver One’ and ‘Rise of the Argonauts’ are in development and expected to ship in 2008 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and the PC.
‘Race Driver One,’ in development at Codemasters internal studios, is the third racing game in the popular ‘TOCA’ series. Like ‘Colin McRae DiRT,’ details in ‘Race Driver One’ will surely benefit from Codemasters utilizing their proprietary new Neon middleware. The only other information made available is a promise for more racing locations than ever before in the series including, but not limited to, Europe, the U.S., and Japan.
‘Rise of the Argonauts’ is being developed by Liquid Entertainment as “an epic scale action-RPG” and all-new intellectual property. The game will thrust players into ancient Greece where they’ll be able to lead iconic warriors including Jason, Hercules and Atalanta through a mythological world ruled by gods.
We’ll have more information and first screenshots for both games in the months ahead.
