It’s been rumored, discussed, leaked, and speculated upon for a while now, but Bandai Namco and Slightly Mad Studios have confirmed Project CARS 2 officially, at last. The game is set to have an expanded roster of over 170 cars and 60+ tracks, brand-new fan-requested Online Championships game mode, and additional racing disciplines, including ice, dirt, snow, and mud racing, over the original game.
“Project CARS 2’s authentic presentation of motorsports racing isn’t just cutting edge, it surpasses the cutting edge,” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at Bandai Namco America. “No other driving game or racing title can approach Project CARS 2’s level of visual fidelity, real-world physics, and intelligent driver A.I. These features combined with dynamic weather and track effects, refined controls, and an authentic love of competitive eSports guarantees players will be able to live-out their racing aspirations on multiple gaming platforms.”
“We’re thrilled to pull off the covers on our publishing partnership with Bandai Namco Entertainment and finally share more details on our latest build with Project CARS 2,” said Stephen Viljoen, Game Director for Project CARS 2. “Our collective goal at Slightly Mad Studios is to create a simulation racing experience that rivals that of real-life. Realism and authenticity are central to our development mantra for Project CARS 2, hence we’re making sure we employ the best professional drivers, game developers, artists, and sound engineers to realize our vision for a game that takes players on the ultimate driver journey.”
Project CARS 2 is due out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC later this year. Stay tuned for more information, and be sure to watch the announcement trailer below.
