Will F1 2021 be available on next-gen?

Yep.

Codemasters missed a trick with their flagship title with the previous upgrade to new consoles. The first Formula 1 game on PS4 and Xbox One was F1 2015, almost two years after their release.

For the Official Formula 1 game to stay relevant, it has to be on the most advanced home consoles available. Dirt 5, another Codemasters title, was released on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, and now F1 2021 will be too.

Other major sporting games such as FIFA and NBA have already been released on next-gen too, so F1 simply has to follow suit.

What about old-gen?

Traditionally, when a new generation of consoles is introduced, there is a transition time where games are released on both iterations of home systems – and that’s the case here as well.
