Yesterday, Pocket Gamer sat down with Codemasters producer Pete Harrison to discuss the release of his studio's classic racer Colin McRae Rally on iOS.

At the end of our interview, we asked Harrison if we'd be seeing more of UK publisher Codemasters on the App Store.

"The answer is... 'yes'. We'll be in touch!" Harrison teased.

Can't hold water

Today, Codemasters VP of digital business Gary Rowe revealed to VG247 that his company is currently working on four different games for touchscreen devices.

"Aside from working with legendary games like Colin McRae Rally, we're readying a whole roster of games," Rowe said.

"Some of these games are based on existing and familiar IP and others are completely new that have been developed exclusively for mobile. If we can leverage success on smart devices, we'd be delighted to see what can then work in the console space."

Unfortunately, Rowe didn't even hint at what these forthcoming titles may be.

"For the future, and while we're not naming specific titles right now, we have four other games in full production for the forthcoming months."

Stay tuned, folks. We'll keep you updated.
