    Well before I buy into PCars 2 I want more features in PCARS 1. Especially a better multiclass set up. And more cars per group, we are tired of racing with one or 2 cars per class, Touring Cars for example.

    Sign-ups for Project CARS 2 pre-Alpha is closed. I also don't think you're going to get some of those. They won't divide the GT3 class into both GT3 and GTE classes. However, you might be lucky with the Chevrolet license and get their WTCC car alongside the BMW. I doubt that though.

    As far as I can tell, there are currently four screenshots, seemingly from pCARS 2, publicly available at the WMD site.

    http://www.wmdportal.com/projectnews/announcing-project-cars-2-sign-up-now/

    All of them of a Focus RS dong some offroad hooning. Not even sure of it's really representable of how the game might look like at this time. Don't know if they're aiming at even higher level graphics, or if they'll keep it at very much the level of pCARS 1, and just optimize the engine for smoother running and improved LOD.

    Browsing Twitter and I saw this image. Does anyone know what Phoenix specifically is?
    [​IMG]
    For all I know it could be Phoenix International Raceway where Indycar is going this year, a classic Phoenix street circuit that was possibly hinted at in the forum Q&A or a Phoenix Rallycross circuit where Red Bull GRC is going this year.

    Seems to check out. However, Ian said here that there was a classic Phoenix underway. Are you sure it's not that?

    If they plan to improve the graphics they might as well drop the Xbone edition then, pCARS 1 runs savagely as it is.

    The reason pcars struggles on xbone, and to an extent on ps4 as well is largely due to poor optimization of the game engine. Remember that the decision to go ps4 and xbone instead of ps3 and x360 came fairly late in the development.

    Kinda wonder when we will start seeing YouTube videos of this game. Probably once DLC/Patch support for Pcars1 is done just about.

    Probably once they have something decent to show, for the moment it is more like bits and pieces of pCARS 1.

    Oh ok. I'm slowly starting to get interested in that game. I'm still enjoying Pcars1 for now though. You must be one one of the WMD guys right?

    Have to say that despite the issues with PCars ('lost' a profile to the stuck in the same championship bug last night) its still for me the best motorsport racing title on the Playstation, as such I am looking forward to PCars 2.

    Iain did mention in his Q&A session in December that they would start teasing stuff soon.

    My own view is that it's still way too soon to start teasing stuff, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it feels wrong to me to start really teasing the next game when the first one is still getting DLC, and secondly there really isn't much to see yet. There's some stuff in development that will be awesome if it all makes it as planned, but it's still very early days.

    Me too. I'm curious to see if the graphics are further improved, and the hillclimb and togue modes mentioned on the wmd site. Assuming they haven't abandoned those ideas.

    There are more disciplines and the loose surface stuff could be excellent from a rally cross perspective. I wouldn't expect anything teased too soon.

    I think Ian Bell said there will still be a large part of the game dedicated to circuit racing (which I'm glad about). There has been a huge range of cars and racing types suggested by WMD2 members but be sure that not all will be included. Hopefully a really good range will though.

    Having signed up to be part of the development process as yet I dont have a PC capable of testing. I'm playing and loving Project Cars 1 on PS4. Despite the flaws it is the best racing game I've used anywhere (on PC, Spectrum, Amiga, console or Pocketeer in my 40 years obsession with pretend racing.

    I haven't been on the WMD2 forums as much as on here or on the official forum. I'm off to have an update now. I'll happily help keep this forum informed/teased when there's something to tease but only when we're allowed to. As yet it's too early for any of that. It is cool seeing some of what's being talked about though. There, that's a tease.

    I've following pCARS 2 stuff quite closely, the game just don't have anything nice to show or tease at the moment. There are a few new tech for the game which looks interesting in the debug mode SMS show but it is definitely not teasing material yet.

    There are some new tracks and cars, SMS seems to only show progress thread for tracks and cars they have secured licensed. Good chunk of cars are coming back and there are some nice new addition too but one of the road cars are not coming back though.

    If I were to hazard a guess, I would say the Focus RS. Would make sense to license the 2016 RS instead.

    Ford haven't officially came back actually but I think the old Focus RS might be coming back.

    Can you answer this? How deep are they into the development of the game?
