Nevertheless, it did not arrive on all platforms at the same time, leaving players confused. F1 2021 owners were unsure whether there was an issue with their device or account. Did this delay had something to do with the game’s developers Codemasters itself. So, here in this article, we will answer the question, What Time Does F1 2021 Release?
F1 2021 is the latest installment of the F1 game franchise as the game has been released for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Along with this, the game is also available for next-gen consoles like PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. While the franchise fans were already excited for the new installment, F1 2021 has come out with a new Story Mode. This Story Mode would be similar to The Journey on EA’s FIFA franchise. Codemasters have done their best to make the experience great. This can be said as the game mode would have a full narrative along with tailored CG cut-scenes.

Here, we will give you a base time to base the release time when compared to your local time zone. The PS4 version of F1 2021 came out at 12 am BST, while the Xbox One Version of F1 2021 was released at 1 am, both of them being on the release day itself. This release time and date are the same for their next-gen counterparts, that is, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

Was there an Early Access to F1 2021?
Yes, players could have gotten Early Access for F1 2021. But this Early Access was only available in the Deluxe Edition of the game. On purchasing the Deluxe Edition of F1 2021, players could have played the game three days prior to the Standard Edition on 13th July 2021. This would not just have given the owners of the Deluxe Edition a headstart in the game but also award them with additional Bonus Rewards. Above, we have mentioned how the Deluxe Edition Players would receive Bonus rewards. These include the My Team Icons Pack, Braking Point Content Pack, and 18,000 PitCoins. Along with this, players would have received additional customization content.
Will F1 2021 have Crossplay or be Available on Xbox Game Pass or EA Play?
As of now, F1 2021 has not been made available for Crossplay. Fans are demanding it highly, so the chances are that the feature will arrive in the future. Even the Director of the F1 games at Codemasters, Lee Mather, has confirmed that they have been working on the Crossplay for F1 2021. If we are lucky, we would see the feature soon be integrated into the F1 franchise. This would allow a wider range of players to play the game against each other, further increasing its demand. So there is no real reason for Codemasters not to try and integrate Crossplay into the F! franchise.
As for the Xbox Game Pass and EA Play, F1 2021 is not available on the memberships. Considering that Codemasters own F1 2021, it would take some time for the game to be made available on the subscription services. Considering that FIFA 21, a game of EA Sports itself, took a lot of time to arrive on the service, the same can be said about F1 2021.
