Project CARS 2 announced already?

Even though Project CARS was finally released a little over a month ago, it seems that Slightly Mad Studios is ready to go at it again and as such Project CARS 2 is in development. And yes Project CARS 2 will also be a crown-funded title, although there hasn’t been a budget announced for the title just yet. If you’re interested in the details and want to pitch in, head over to http://www.wmdportal.com/projects/project-cars-2.

I don’t know about you but feel it’s a tad too early to announce a sequel so soon and I don’t agree about the decision, especially since Project CARS still has issues that need to be addressed and wish they would look into that before announcing a sequel. Just a thought though.

With over 10 years of heritage and pedigree making some of the world’s most memorable and successful racing franchises – such as GTR, Need For Speed, and Test Drive – Slightly Mad Studios once again pioneered and innovated in 2015 by launching the critically-acclaimed and best-selling Project CARS; a game wholly funded and created by a passionate community of racing fans from around the world.

With tens of thousands of players testing the game, giving feedback on it, and creating assets for it throughout development, Project CARS has been hailed as a true competitor to long-established stalwarts, and as the market leader in both visual fidelity and technical expertise.

With an existing schedule of ON DEMAND content already underway to continue providing Project CARS with fresh new features, updates, and great things to play with throughout the year, Slightly Mad Studios now turns its attention to the future with the announcement of the continuation of the franchise with Project CARS 2. And once again, the sequel will be created, tested, and ultimately approved by you – the gamers – through the WMD Portal crowd-funding platform.
