FIA Formula 2 Championship Coming To The F1 2019 Game
Codemasters has confirmed that the FIA Formula 2 Championship will be a part of the F1 2019 game franchise as it was one of the most requested features of the community.
The British developer confirmed that the full 2018 Formula 2 season including all cars, teams, and drivers, will be available from launch, while the 2019 Formula 2 season content will be added to the game later in the year. The F2 content will be part of the single player career mode, but will also be available for online multiplayer sessions.
Fans can see from the new cover art design that F1® 2019 has a strong theme of rivalry running through it, just like the main sport itself. As such, we are absolutely delighted to have resurrected F1®’s greatest ever rivalry between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost, said Paul Jeal, F1® Franchise Director at Codemasters. Their rivalry began right back in the 1984 season and reached one of the most dramatic ever climaxes on the first lap of the Japanese Grand Prix during the 1990 season. It’s a rivalry which has transcended way beyond the sport and is regarded as the greatest of all time by F1® fans. We know our community will love that the two legends of the sport have finally been immortalised together in our game.
This is definitely great news for open-wheeler fans and makes us wonder if we might see the FIA Formula 3 series appear in one of the future installments of the game.
If all goes as planned, F1 2019 will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (DVD and via Steam) on June 28th, 2019. Those who pre-purchased the F1 2019 Legends Edition will have game access three days earlier on June 25th, 2019.
