After today’s iPad announcement by Apple, Firemint (developer of both Flight Control and Real Racing had their own announcement. In that release Firemint said, “We’re delighted that we can now make our own announcement: we will bring an optimised and re-imagined version of Flight Control to iPad. Like almost 140,000 other apps on the App Store, Flight Control will work perfectly on iPad without any changes from us, but we want to ensure a delightful experience on iPad that feels just right.
We started developing Real Racing before the iPhone 3G was announced. Similarly, we are already building our next generation of games for higher definition, more powerful devices than are available today. We like to imagine what the devices of tomorrow will be capable of, and invest in bringing our games to the next generation of hardware. The iPad announcement and Apple’s A4 chip have come at a fantastic time for us. We are working on some incredibly fun and exciting games that will look amazing on iPad and take full advantage of its features, as well as working brilliantly on iPhone and iPod touch.”
Time will tell if Firemint will be bringing their world famous racing game to the big screen. Haven’t you always wanted to play it on a bigger screen? More details to come.
