release announces a new agreement between 10tacle and Ferrari to bring the
Italian manufacturer's exotic automobiles to life in computer and video games:
Darmstadt, November 7rd 2006 – 10TACLE STUDIOS AG and Ferrari have concluded a licensing agreement for the development of video games. This will allow 10TACLE STUDIOS AG to produce games using the Ferrari product palette and brand name. 10TACLE STUDIOS AG plans to work together with the legendary Italian sports car manufacturer closely to development a number of computer and video games.
“The expansion of our racing portfolio is an important part of our strategy for growth. Ferrari is synonymous with automotive excellence in both sports and racing cars. A license to use the Ferrari brand name and cars is the best a computer games developer in this field can acquire. We will do our very best to recreate the passionate experience of driving a Ferrari as realistically as possible”, explained 10TACLE STUDIOS AG chairman Michele Pes.
„10TACLE STUDIOS have proven repeatedly that they are capable of developing racing games on a level appropriate to Ferrari’s leading position in the field. We look forward to working together“, said Head of Licensing at Ferrari Katia Bassi.
Ferrari is already in the GTR games, nonetheless, if 10tacle keeps this new game to the same standards it will be worth playing. Howzabout a GTR engine street racing game? Damn that would be fun, especially if they do an accurate damage model.
Who is 10tacle studios and why do I care they have the Ferrari license? It's not as if nearly every racing game from Need for Speed to Project Gotham Racing doesn't already have the Ferrari license. Move along.
