We found out a couple weeks ago via a leak that Codemasters' F1 2021 would be releasing this July, and now it's been confirmed that the game will officially arrive on July 16 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

The big new feature of this year's game is a "thrilling new story experience" called Braking Point, which will see you rise from the ranks of F2 to earn a seat on the F1 grid, featuring off-track drama and personality conflicts.

In addition, the game's Career mode offers a two-player competitive or co-operative option, and there's also an all-new Real-Season Start feature which allows you to jump into the real life F1 season's action. On Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, F1 2021 will also include faster load times and "even greater graphical fidelity."

And of course, following the recent acquisition, the game will be published by EA Sports for the first time!

"It’s always an exciting time when we reveal a new F1 title, and that’s especially the case this year, as we build on the incredible response to F1 2020 with fresh features, including a brand new story mode, expanded Career, and streamlined car development."

Looking forward to the release of F1 2021 for Xbox consoles this July? Let us know down below.
