GRID 2: Cockpit view absent because more than 95% people didn’t use it

Posted By | On 13th, Aug. 2012

Codemasters has finally responded to questions about the absence of Cockpit view in GRID 2.

That figure, apparently, is up to more than 95%, which is quite a shocking fact. Here’s what executive producer, Clive Moody, had to say.

“There seems to be some confusion about where we get our data from to help us make these decisions. While we do use research and focus groups, the most important data source for us is the enormous amount of telemetry data we can obtain from our servers that tells us exactly how and what our players are doing across all our games,” he told PCGamesN.

“So it’s not a case of just a sample of people we’ve spoken to in research. It’s a fact that only 5% of Codemasters Racing game players ever used the in-car view. By making this educated call, we can use the extra available memory to make the on-track racing a truly mind-blowingly immersive experience.”

“We can author and run higher resolution vehicle models with more detailed geometry. We can feature higher resolution external vehicle textures and work further detail into our environment textures. We can dedicate more processing power to our improved physics systems, integral to the GRID 2 experience, and push other systems to the next level, such as particles and real-time lighting.”

GRID 2 doesn’t have a release date yet, but a summer 2013 release has been announced.
