Project CARS 2 release date hinted at by Slightly Mad Studios

Slightly Mad Studios has offered some insight as to when we can expect upcoming racer Project CARS 2 to launch.

Project CARS 2 release date hinted at

According to the studio’s CEO, Ian Bell, the hotly anticipated racer is targeting a September release window on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. However, he also made it clear that there’s still a fair bit of work to do, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the game gets delayed at some point. 

We have rewritten the rendering system. We have added multiple newly written and very important modules to the physics, drivetrain, differential and tire modeling systems. The FFB system is now much more intuitive and comes with presets. The handling is transformed, in a very very good way. I’m biased I know but right now in the latest build I have, those cars that have all of the new systems in place have raised the bar for simulation… and this is before they are polished.

None of the famous brands are missing this time. We’ve started QA already. We plan at least 7 months of QA for polishing and bug fixing.”

The original Project CARS was released on the PS4, PC, and Xbox One, and also featured virtual reality compatibility for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The game was funded by the community, with a total of $5 million being raised by investors who also received a percentage of the game’s project. Project CARS went onto sell over two million copies worldwide.
