Guildford Studio at work on new title based on Dirtâ??s game engine EGO

Britsoft publisher Codemasters has confirmed earlier rumours that its Guilford studio is working on a brand new first person shooter IP headed up by creative director Stuart Black – who, as has been noted, was the man behind Criterion’s 2006 outing Black.

The title will be built using the EGO Game Technology Platform, which is the same engine that has powered recent hits such as Dirt 2, Race Driver: Grid and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising.

The game’s 80 man+ development team also includes former SCE London game director Tom Gillo and Andrew Wilson who previously was the senior producer of Black rock’s Split/Second.
