has first details on GRID Autosport
, a new installment in
Codemasters' racing series coming to Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on

celebrates the return to the roots of the series, and here's a bit
on their plans:
While we were patching GRID 2 and releasing new content,
we were busy gathering feedback. We devoured the comment threads under articles
about GRID 2 on gaming websites, took stock of our reviews, and of course,
digested all the comments on our social channels and forums where we received
direct feedback. It’s this feedback that helped create GRID Autosport.
If GRID 2 raced off into a more narrative-led world of racing with more
accessible controls, it’s clear that for many of you, that wasn’t what you
wanted or expected from GRID 2. So with GRID Autosport we had the opportunity to
make a much more focussed motorsport game, a desire that many of you have
expressed directly to us, and a game that in spirit goes back to some of our
earlier titles in terms of content and handling.
