Evolution Studios was in dire straits after publisher Sony Computer Entertainment sought to shutter it following internal reviews. Thankfully, the DriveClub developer has found a new home with Codemasters, the creators of Dirt Rally.

Evolution’s role will be to now create new racing IP for Codemasters, with CEO Frank Sagnier telling Games Industry International that, “We want to benefit from everything that they’ve learned as a team together, we want them to create their own games.

“Of course there will be synergies, of course we will share stuff, but we would like to make sure they retain their identity and stay together as a team to do what they’re good at.”

DriveClub director Paul Rustchynsky is excited for the partnership. On Twitter, he said, “We can’t wait to start work with @Codemasters on a new racing IP! Keep following myself & @PhenomEvolution for news.”

All’s well that ends well, right? We wish Evolution and Codemasters luck on their new partnership.
