A teaser trailer from GRID 2 developer Codemasters found its way onto the internet this morning, stating "Racing is Coming" and promising a reveal on April 22, 2014. Considering the video was published on the GRID Youtube channel and a follow-up blog post has been published on the GRID developer blog, it's probably safe to say we're looking at a GRID 2 follow-up. Could we be on the verge of the first GRID game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One?
Obviously details are basically nonexistent, considering the game has yet to be announced yet. Still, this is the gaming industry and that means there certain to be leaks. Rightly so! A team member from Codemasters has posted another hint on NeoGaf. More than a hint, even:
"Just a heads up, this isn't DLC :)
Cockpit view? We listened.."
It's GRID related, isn't DLC, and adds a huge feature like cockpit view. Yet despite the hints it's hard to believe Codemasters would have a sequel put together by now, right? That's certainly an option, but there are a few others too. It could be a "Game of the Year" of GRID 2, it could be a remastered edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, or it could be a standalone expansion a la Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry.
Whatever the type of content ultimately ends up being I have a hard time believing that it won't be something for next-gen consoles. That's just the type of game that GRID is -- it capitalizes on juicing as much out of the hardware it's on. GRID 2 did that already on older consoles, so it's time to take the next step. Still, just one year isn't enough for a full game, is it?
