Codemasters have announced GRID 2 this evening, after teasing it earlier in the week. Releasing in 2013, the follow-up to the 2008 original is headed to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Interestingly, according to Eurogamer, Codemasters have removed the cockpit camera, after research determined that 95% of players use either a bonnet-based or chase camera.
The game will include a mix of street, track, and road races, and will include licensed circuits. There will also be a substantive career mode, spanning three continents and featuring cars selected from over four decades of racing history.
Additionally, the title supports split-screen multiplayer, numerous online modes (all of which support Codemasters' RaceNet social networking system) - including a "distinct and extensive" online gameplay component, and what Codemasters are describing as a "unique" progression system. Singleplayer and Multiplayer are completely separate, and unlocking or improving items in either one will not affect the other.
GRID 2, which has been in development for two years, will be on display for the first time in late September, at which point in time more information is likely to be revealed.
