Elite: Dangerous, Planet Zoo Dev Signs Deal to Make Formula 1 Management Games

Frontier Developments, the British studio behind Elite: Dangerous and Planet Zoo, has signed a multi-year deal to make a series of Formula 1 management games.An announcement of Frontier’s acquisition of the Formula 1 licence reveals that the first game aims to launch for the 2022 F1 season, and – provided it is successful – Frontier can then develop games for further F1 seasons up to and including the 2025 season.The deal allows Frontier to make games for PC and console platforms, which will all be developed on the Cobra engine, the tools used to make Elite: Dangerous and the Planet Coaster and Zoo games.

Aside from “F1 management games” there are currently no details on what kind of game Frontier will make. Frontier also declined to comment with further information. The genre does make it clear this won’t be a driving simulation though – Codemasters has the licence for that – but whether this will be a Planet-style management game or something entirely different remains to be seen.
