YouTube (no footage, sound only). Announcement coming with gameplay on Tuesday the 22nd.

Sounds like a wide variety of cars will be present, so smart people's money will be on another GRID game. I'm hoping they move away from the IP's recent direction and back to its roots with a ToCA Race Driver-style title, but given their recent inclination towards arcade handling and other gimmicks I doubt it. In-car views and race team features are tipped to make a comeback given the fan backlash after GRID 2.

Edit: Below comments suggest it's NOT a GRID 2 port, cockpit view is back, and it's a 'return to its roots'... aw shit.

Pretty sure in that thread that was up a few months back a CM employee reinforced that the more traditional players shouldn't be worried about any new installments. To me that means that cockpits will be in and everything.

edit:

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthre...highlight=dirt

look at some of the tweets there. it's about Dirt, but I imagine it'll be the same for Grid after the backlash from before.

It wouldn't surprise me if this was a port of Grid 2 + DLC for PS4/XONE. It seems like it would be too soon for Grid 3 (especially considering how long it was between 1 & 2).

I think DiRT 3 is about as close as you'll get to that I'm afraid.

Why not just make the mother of all racing games and merge DiRT with GRID?

Will be a Q1 2015 release at best, so no.

Thanks for posting fellow GAFfer. I have the Digital PS3 version but no longer have my PS3 but I did play quite a bit of GRID 2 on Steam and finished it. Can't wait to see what's coming up.

Hmm, yes! Like the old-school ToCA games. ToCA Race Driver 3 was an incredible game.

..and Throw some Formula 1 cars in there!, they have the Formula 1 License.

Do you like racing games? Semi arcade/realistic ones? Try GRID 2 then. It's really good. Especially the PC version.

GRID 1
- Arcadey handling
- Create a race team
- Climb 'racing ladder' of sorts through various disciplines
- Good location / event variety
- Fun multiplayer (especially with touring cars)
- Decent visuals

GRID 2
- Very arcadey handling
- Team features gone
- Weird progression through events
- Separate multiplayer progression (greater emphasis on unlocks)
- Poor event / location variety
- Awesome visuals

Seems like a next-gen GRID, probably just an updated GRID 2 unfortunately. Not that GRID 2 was bad, but compared to the first it was a huge disappointment.

Surely too early for a fully-fledged GRID sequel? GRID 2 is barely a year old.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's a spin-off, much like Dirt: Showdown.


Or it could just be an 'Definitive Edition' GRID 2 for PS4/One with cockpit view etc.

Nice! Look forward to see what it is, Grid 2 Definitive (cockpit included) or a full on new game

As much as I liked Grid 2, it definitely was inferior to the first Grid, which is probably my favourite racing game considering how much I played it. Online touring cars was amazing and the career where you built a team was great
