GRID delayed to October 11

No longer due out in September.


Codemasters has delayed GRID from its previously announced September 10 release date to October 11. The “Ultimate Edition” will include three days early access on October 8. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Here is an overview of the game, via Codemasters:


Capturing intense moment-to-moment racing action, GRID returns with an all-new experience where every race is the chance to choose your own path, create your own story and define your legacy in the motorsport world.

From the creators of the hugely successful DiRT and F1 series, Codemasters invites you to take your place in the GRID World Series and compete in intense wheel-towheel racing with the most iconic and desirable race cars–current and classic, from GT through Touring and Muscle to Stock and Super Modifieds–and in some of the world’s most iconic locations.

GRID captures every moment of the race, from the adrenaline rush of lights-out to the elation at the chequered flag–and in-between, it’s all action too. Incidents come one right after the other–tight overtakes, bumper-to bumper scrapes and competitive collisions–all heightened by rivalries, team-mates and a nemesis driver who will all either try to help or hinder your progress as you achieve your goal of becoming the GRID World Series champion.
