Project CARS 2 Has Entered Testing Phase; Expected to Release Around September

Slightly Mad Studios’ Project CARS was one of the highlights of 2016, being one of the few well-executed racing games in recent memory.

Over on the Project CARS Forums, Studio Head Ian Bell decided its time to share some new information about the game’s sequel, which was officially announced last year for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. He revealed that the game has entered the testing phase and continued to discuss some of the improvements the development team implemented.

We have rewritten the rendering system. We have added multiple newly written and very important modules to the physics, drivetrain, differential and tyre modelling 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. But I can’t say anything specific as we’ll start the hype train soon.

OK it’s Christmas. None of the famous brands are missing this time.

We are all excited to know when Project CARS 2 is coming, but no details on the release date were shared.
