After turning its back
on its Sega Racing Studio, Sega has handed the British developer over to Codemasters, which will integrate the company into its existing Codemasters Studios. Sega cut the studio loose earlier this month following lackluster sales of Sega Rally Revo
, the developer's one and only release.
Codemasters, however, see the studio as a worthwhile addition to bolster its ongoing development of racing games by bringing on more than 40 new employees with at least one published racer to their credit. However, it looks like Codies' may be returning for seconds, and after the dust settles there may be more acquisitions in the company's future. As chief exec Rod Cousens puts it, "there will be more to come as we are not content to stand still."
