Codemasters Revs Up New Engine


Codemasters has unveiled it’s new in-house engine dubbed EGO. It’s an evolution of the Neon engine powering Colin McRae: DiRT and has been in the works at Central Technology Unit for three years.

EGO, an alternative to Unreal Engine 3 or Source, has taken a good deal of Codemasters’ GBP 40.5 million (USD 8.2 million) investment in boosting design and technology.

Two new flagship titles are powered by EGO; Race Driver: GRID and Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising. Both titles are in development for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Catch screenshots of Race Driver: GRID on FileFront.

Race Driver: GRID is on track for release mid 2008 while players can look for Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising in the later half of 2008.
