Today comes the first official word on GRiD 2, the Codemasters sequel that was previously only spoken of in whispers behind the locked doors of secret underground bunkers. By which we mean, Codemasters had said they were making it, but hadn't released anything official.

The teaser trailer doesn't show us much, but it does strike just the right chord with the part of our brain that's obsessed with drifting around corners as fast and as tight as possible.

GRiD 2 is likely being built on the same engine as Dirt 3, so expect something truly lovely if that's your sort of deal.
