Codemasters have now officially announced the 2020 edition of their F1 series. As I said previously this is now confirmed to feature all 22 circuits of the original calendar, including Hanoi Circuit and Circuit Zandvoort. As I also said previously the release date has been pushed back from it’s previous release month to July 10, 2020.

If Codemasters do make that date, I suspect they will put out a single body shape where the only difference car to car is the livery and drivers. This is most likely because teams have not yet sent them CAD data. Their release date also clearly states:

Online connection required to download the final teams’ 2020 cars (as applicable) and F2™ 2020 season content.

The announcement did come with a few surprises though, including the fact that for the first time, players can create their own F1 team by creating a driver, choosing a sponsor, an engine supplier, hiring a teammate and competing as the 11th team on the grid. You’ll build facilities and manage the team over time trying to work your way up the grid. This is very appealing to me and a good way of making me run more than one championship per title.

I openly criticized the F1 2019 version of the F2 career because of how it only contained a few set-piece scenarios for you to deal with. Codemasters say that with F1 2020 you can:

Customize your 10-year career mode, with a choice of F2™ Championship introduction options and season lengths to allow for a more exciting, multiple season, career.

Not only that, but we’re going to see split-screen multiplayer!

The Schumacher Deluxe Edition (announced via the trailer video below) will include the Ferrari F2000, Benetton B195, Benetton B194 and Jordan 191.

You can see the car renders below. They clearly show all exactly the same body 3D with just altered liveries for each team.
