Well after some digging, on April the 5th 50% of their company got sold...

...wait for it...

...abroad. http://www.google.co.uk/search?num=1...G=Search&meta=

Soon there will be no pure British only companies left except by name. This was one of the oldest and most successful British software houses still going, if I'm not mistaken. And I probably am! I think it was already majorly owned by a European firm since 2005.

So it looks like Codemasters will still be plodding on as usual.
