F1 2019 Announced, Scheduled to Launch on June 28 - Teaser Trailer & Screenshots Included

Codemasters has officially announced F1 2019 and have provided a teaser trailer and some “work in progress” images below. The team plans to ship the game two months earlier into the F1 season, during Austrian Grand Prix weekend, on June 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

F1 2019 has been in development for nearly two years, working in partnership with F1, for the first time ever, players will be able to get behind the wheel of a 2019 regulation car specifically designed in collaboration with F1’s technical team, headed up by Ross Brawn and Pat Symonds.

Read the full press release below and more details at the official F1 2019 website.

Codemasters and Koch Media today announced that F1 2019, the official videogame of the 2019 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™, will ship a full two months earlier into the F1 season and launch worldwide on June 28, 2019. The game will be released during the Austrian Grand Prix weekend and, unlike previous iterations, ahead of the British, German and Hungarian Grands Prix. F1 2019 has been in development for nearly two years, making it the most ambitious release in franchise history, and launches on PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and Windows PC. 

Working in partnership with F1, for the first time ever, players will be able to get behind the wheel of a 2019 regulation car specifically designed in collaboration with F1’s technical team, headed up by Ross Brawn and Pat Symonds. The car, which will be available in Multiplayer, adheres to the 2019 regulations and comes with a range of livery designs offering players a new level of personalization. The 2019 F1 Team liveries will also feature on the car in early marketing materials, but will be replaced by the final Team cars ahead of the game’s release.

Having established itself as one of the highest-rated racing franchises of all time, F1 2019 will build on the success of previous iterations and deliver an experience that rivals the quality and production values of its real-life race counterpart and includes several new game features which will be revealed in the coming months. To whet the appetite Codemasters has today released the F1 2019 Teaser Trailer, which showcases some of the game’s brand new look and feel.

“We are absolutely delighted to be able to release F1 2019 earlier in the Formula 1 Season, so that the game can be played and enjoyed at the same time that the real-world championship picture is starting to form,” said Paul Jeal, F1 Franchise Director at Codemasters. “Our close relationship with Formula 1 has played a major part in achieving this key objective for the franchise. That in addition to our near two-year development cycle, has allowed us to develop some exciting new features and other firsts for the franchise that we can’t wait to share with our community in the coming months.”

“The exciting collaboration with Ross Brawn and Pat Symonds has created new levels of player personalization in F1 2019 through the inclusion of the new regulation car,” said Lee Mather, F1 2019 Game Director at Codemasters. “With the continued growth of the F1 series, it’s great to give players more control and new levels of car and driver customization and we can’t wait to talk more about this alongside the new multiplayer features in the coming months.”

    The trailer should drop soon.
    Some interesting changes are coming folks and I think you all will love them.

    Wow, that's a big surprise! :waytogo: Thanks for posting this...a bit more mid-season release, and then they can update the livery as we go.
    Do you know anything about the changes? Honestly, shaving off this many weeks from the norm makes me think they didn't do too much to it (not that it needs it) other than updates to the drivers, cars, teams and some more fixes and refinements. I'm good with that, but curious what could be new this year.
    Ok I will go into a little bit of what I know and some stuff that I just can't yet.
    First THIS game has actually been in development for two years on its own. 17 and 18 were testing grounds for things that would be added in a more featured way in this years game.
    I dont know if any of you will pick it up as most in the US don't follow F1 like I do. But that very last car in the trailer is an F2 car. Yes they will be in career mode and its my understanding that you will have to work your way up to F1 in a new career mode.
    There are adding in a blank template of a fully legal F1 2019 car that you will be able to customize yourself. All I really know about this is it is more aimed at the E sports arena so that teams and drivers will be able to have custom cars. I do not know if it will be carried over into offline or career where you can have custom teams.
    The last tidbit that I know for sure and that can be talked about right now. F1 is actually in the development process on this game for the first time. Not just a licensed brand but are now using their resources and tools to help design the game as well as some of the engineers involved in car design and physics. This will be the first time that the actual organization of F1 has had a hand in developing the game beyond just being a brand sponsor.
    This is all I have and can say right now. As soon as I have more I will be here posting and keeping this thread updated.

    WOW. Im liking pretty much everything Im hearing right now. Working up from F2 to F1 will be great for me because now there will actually be a reason as to why I'm on the F1 team I'm on instead of just picking them.
    I just hope custom liveries are in career mode and that they can be shared.
    F2 is a VERY nice addition.
    Perhaps the Codies can add some classic tracks on which we can run classic cars? Seems effing weird to run a 1976 McLaren at COTA or Sochi. I would rather run it at Zandvoort, Fuji or Dijon.
    I'm just starting to play 2018 and I'm liking it so much that at the moment I'm planning on skipping the next one to dive deep and slowly into a 10-year career.
    This will probably change if F2 is included though.
    And it will DEFINITELY change if they hear all the claims and finally put the option for a virtual mirror in cockpit view.
    Outstanding stuff so far, thank you Bullit!! Very excited about the possibility of working up F2 to F1 in career, and very curious about F1's contributions to the game.
    My dream feature is a broadcast replay mode of career races with dynamic commentary and graphics overlays, a real presentation game-changer, but I know that is asking a lot.

    Looking forward to this game. F1 2018 was a masterpiece!

    Agreed, 2018 is just amazing. Codies is really serving it up for F1 fans!

    I am already hyped for this game. I love how they seem dedicated to career mode.

    Me too...happily we don't have to wait too long this year. Can't wait to try out the new cars, and the Haas livery is gorgeous this year for my career :)

    Can you say rather or not there is a "Driver carousel?" It would add a ton of immersion to the game if drivers switched teams, got called up from F2 (other than you), and retired. Also driver stat tracking is also needed, that keeps track of wins, podiums ect, for each driver. An owner mode where you can create an 11th team, design liveries, and sign on drivers to fill the seats would also be ideal as well.

    I dont know if this made it to the game this year. But there is a great MOD if you are on PC that does this. Where drivers switch teams at the start of a new season in career mode.
    Im not sure the F1 would allow this without a MOD. They are very protective of their brand. Which is one reason why crashes are not as violent as they can get in real life.

    How would a driver carousel hurt the F1 brand? That's like the NFL not allowing Madden to allow for trades and FA signings.

    I am not part of F1 so I cant answer that. But they have not allowed it in any other game to this point, so why would you expect that to change any time soon. Comparing trades in Madden to Drivers switching teams in F1 is a bit of stretch. LOL
    But I was also referring more to your second comment about an Owner mode with custom liveries and created teams. I believe the only reason they are starting to allow it is because of the E Sports communities. It is becoming a serious form of income to the sports video game industry.

    It's not about the F1 brand but more about the sponsors. In F1,drivers are very closely tied to the sponsors of their teams. So for instance, Red Bull would not want the game to depict Max Verstappen driving for Ferrari and things of that nature.

    Then just have them retire and kids from F2 brought up to replace them, then those F2 drivers once in F1 can change teams...

    It still creates the same problem with "drivers" associated with teams/sponsors they don't belong to, or are endorsed to.
    I don't see it ever happening as long as the series is around. F1 is pretty sensitive to that stuff I believe. It'd be nice though.
    What I really want though, is the ability to add an extra team with my own paintjob/sponsor. I get the impression though the folks at F1 wouldn't be on board with that either. To me though, what's the difference if I replace a real driver with myself, or if I add an extra team with one car, or even two.

    I'm not sure what the problem would be there either, in terms of displacing a driver especially as you are doing that anyway in Career mode already.

    Makes no sense because some if not all the F1 sponsors also sponsor some NASCAR teams. And iirc the EA NASCAR games had driver retirements and a carousel so I honestly dont think that's the issue. Especially since you're already doing that when you displace a driver in career mode with your self.

    I dont believe any Nascar game has had a driver carousel as you call it. I dont ever remember seeing it. I suspect for the same reasons. It's likely due to licensing and brand protection types of things.
    For me, I'm not so concerned about drivers retiring and being replaced, because we'd likely end up with generic names or something anyways. Although with F2 possibly being added that may not be the case. As I said earlier my preference is the ability to create and add my own team. Preferably without having to replace an existing team. I suspect though if they did allow that we'd likely be replacing an existing team to keep the 20 car field intact.
    I do agree though, with the number of drivers that shift around it should be something they consider though when you can run a 10 year career. I think they should be open to that since it's only within career mode.

    F1 just a couple years ago had 11 teams (22 drivers) and I believe they've had as many as 14 teams. So having more than 20 cars should not be an issue here. Their yearly team count can fluctuate.

    They've had way more than that. Back when I started following in the late 80s there were over 30 cars showing up for any given event. By rule, there was a max of 26 cars allowed to start the race and a max of 30 that could take part in practice and qualifying so there used to be a 30 minute pre-qualifying session on Friday morning at 7:30 am that included all the cars that did not qualify for the previous event. The top four from that session got to participate in the rest of the weekend. The rest were excluded.
    That's all interesting information, as I was beginning to wonder in my relatively recent F1 fandom if there was a limit to the number of teams/cars. Sounds like there is room for more on the grid, but it's SOOOOOOOOO expensive to get in and maintain a team.

    Here is an interesting article from last year. You all might find it interesting the lack of profit margins most F1 teams face.

    Ahh.. that makes sense then. Wasn't aware of that. Been a motorsports fan in general a long time, only vaguely paid attention to F1 though up until 4 or 5 years ago. Co-incidentally when I got into playing this series. Just always felt like there were 10 teams. When Haas came in, someone went out I thought too didn't they? I just assumed that was "by design".
    That being said then, yeah, I dont see any reason why they can't give us the ability to add our own 2 car team. Select a Chassis & engine supplier and custom livery/sponsors from a select list in the game or something.

    Nope. Haas first season in 2016 had 11 teams. Manor went bankrupt before the start of season '17 though. The current season is only the third consecutive with 10 teams participating.

    I think Manor and Haas coexisted for 1 year before Manor folded. Think it was Manor anyway...
