Codemasters Teases GRID Sequel

A racing game that probably didn't get enough attention was Codemasters' GRID, which was a very solid and entertaining racing title. After all, this is one developer who is quite familiar with the genre.

And now, more than four years after the original title nailed down some positive reviews, it seems Codemasters is ready to unveil a sequel. This teaser trailer was spotted by an eagle-eyed PSXE reader, and along with an obvious racing theme, we see the GRID logo with the number "2" in the middle. The brief video also tells us that "The Race Returns" on August 8, and the team even tossed up a #TheRaceReturns Tweet ("This looks...interesting?").

correction, forza horizon is releasing this year and forza 5 has already been announced.
we wont be seeing GT6 for at least another 6 years, but that does not mean we wont be seeing any forza titles any time soon.
nice to see grid back FINALLY!
was really starting to think the series was dead.
dunno which i want more though, this or a new dirt game.
eh, whatever as long as they do a new dirt game after this it will be great to have grid back!

I've never played any of Codemasters racing games but the shooters of theirs that I've played have all sucked.

For dirt racing I love motorstorm.
but might have to give this a try.
