With 2024 well underway, the biggest question of the year is upon us: when will we be able to play F1 24?
With the last four entries in the F1 series all releasing on different dates, it may seem hard to pin down exactly when Codemasters will release F1 24, but doing some digging may have revealed an approximate release date.
Latest news: F1 24 release date officially revealed
F1 24 has now been officially revealed, and with confirmation of the game comes an announcement as to when F1 24 will be released. All predictions for F1 24's release date have proven to be unfounded, with the previously leaked release date turning out to be right on the mark.
Rumours of a May release have proved to be true, with F1 24 launching on 31 May 2024. Players who preorder the game can get behind the wheel three days early, putting them on the grid from 28 May.
F1 24 will get a full reveal in April, so for now we remain in the dark as to any new features, game modes, and other surprises Codemasters may have cooked up.
The latest entry in the hugely successful F1 series, F1 24 will be the third game in the series to be published by EA under its EA Sports banner. With lots of exciting new features expected, everyone is asking when exactly we’ll be able to hit the track in our favourite F1 cars.
Despite F1 2020, F1 2021, F1 22, and F1 23 all being released on different dates, they all have one thing in common: they were all released on the same weekend as an F1 race.
F1 2020 launched on 10 July 2020, coinciding with that year’s Spielberg Grand Prix, the repeat of the Austrian Grand Prix. F1 2021 and F1 22 were released on 16 July 2021 and 1 July 2022 respectively, both arriving concurrently with that year’s British Grand Prix. F1 23 hit the market worldwide on 16 June 2023, the same weekend as the Canadian Grand Prix.
So we now know that F1 24 is likely to launch on the same weekend as a race in 2024 and that it should be sometime around June or July, so let’s take a look at the possibilities.
When will F1 24 be released?
With official confirmation of the game, we now know when F1 24 will be launching.
The game will hit the market on 31 May 2024, with players who preorder getting three days early access. This will give them access to the grid from 28 May.
Preorder bonuses also include exclusive 2024 liveries, along with VIP Podium Pass rewards. These are dependent on which edition of F1 24 players preorder.
