Stuart Black reveals he had an "open world cop game" in the pre-production phase whilst at Codemasters, but it became a "little bit too rich for their blood" after a year and a half. Problem lies in production.

He had no life ambition to "make another shooter after Black," but it was 'relatively easy' to do. Codemasters fault wasn't in creativity but in its execution of development. Black freelances now.

Publisher Codemasters is "proposing to retire" their Guildford outfit, which recently released shooter Bodycount. They want to "take greater leadership" in racing.

It means they're reassigning resources to strength their "best-in-class racing teams," which means Warwickshire and Birmingham studios get more investment.
