Codemasters’ Console Racer ‘GRID Autosport’ Is Driving Onto iOS Later This Year

Over the past few months, Feral Interactive have put together an impressive run of converting premium console releases to the smaller screen of the iPhone and iPad. Rome: Total War ($9.99) brought the cult classic strategic conquering action to the App Store, and the sequel-cum-expansion Rome: Total War – Barbarian Invasion is set to launch on the iPad later this month. Despite this pedigree in the strategy genre, Feral are taking a sharp left turn with their next iOS port – today the London-based developers announced that Codemasters’ GRID Autosport would be making the transition to mobile, as the complete experience from the previous PC and console release in 2014.

While there aren’t any pictures or videos of how the iOS port shapes up, and no specific details on the content beyond the aforementioned declaration of GRID Autosport being the ‘complete experience’, the game’s relatively positive reception on its inception in 2014 suggests that this latest Codemasters racing title will be a step above recent mobile efforts such as F1 2016 ($1.99) and Colin McRae Rally ($2.99). Furthermore, Feral Interactive have previously been responsible for the Mac App Store iteration of GRID Autosport (as well as a whole host of other ports for the platform), so it goes without saying that the latest title in the TOCA series is in good hands. For more details as they break, keep an eye on Feral Interactive’s Twitter account, and also be sure to join in the discussion on our forum thread.
