Codemasters announced that it is expanding and will soon make Evolution Studios (DriveClub, MotorStorm) a part of its family.

Codemasters today announced that it will be making Evolution Studios a part of its family from April 25th. The news comes a week after Sony announced that it would be closing Evolution Studios.

While DriveClub and MotorStorm will remain Sony’s property, Codemasters will get its hands on Evolution’s talented team and wealth of racing expertise. In a blog post, Codemasters said that this expansion will “take Codemasters to the next level as the world’s largest racing-focused games company.”

Mick Hocking – formerly of Evolution Studios – will be taking the position of VP Product Development at Codemasters. This will see him responsible for all of the company’s studios, including Evolution Studios.

Codemasters and Evolution will be working on a brand new multiplatform IP. That’s all that they’ll say for the moment, but fans of DriveClub and MotorStorm will be looking forward to what they have in store.
