    Plans for Project CARS 2 have been leaked.

    From Ian Bell:
    https://pretendracecars.wordpress.com/2015/04/23/project-cars-2-confirmed/

    And apparently from WMD:

    Yeah thank you for another post about leaked stuff. We had this in the main thread yesterday and besides speculation what pcars2 might bring in the future, there is no point in this thread. It is business as usual to plan ahead, it's not like they started with the development. We have enough wishlist threads, so I don't see a point in this one.

    You will get the all the info you need when it will be official. This is just another proof that pretendracecars side should be closed and thrown out of wmd.

    When will you guys learn that you should not directly link to this PRC website?

    And even if they had already started it, this would still be pretty normal.
    You can't keep all your full time code programmers busy with patches and DLCs.
    What should they do?
    Sit on their hands until the gamers "allow" them to start with work on another game?

    Some people really have no idea how software development works.

    How should I post this news without linking to the original, public source?

    I understand members of WMD don't like leaks like this happening but that's true for every other developer. You think PD is happy about leaks on GTP?

    Users are.

    Not posting it at all. Besides, the second link in your post gives the answer.

    This "website" is a special case though. And IMO it doesn't deserve to get linked by anyone.

    Very interesting. With the non-ROI approach they could increase the price of toolpacks (80€ and up), so not every hater and leaky kid can buy one, but would have to provide future DLC for free, until it balances with the investment.

    To think how mature the Elite forums were, before the floodgates opened...

    Fantastic news! Will be definitely be getting on board as I have some major ideas that I'd desperately love to see featured in a game and through the WMD system, I feel like there's an opportunity for my ideas to be heard.

    I might have made a mistake for posting that here but I'm not a member, I saw that in the Project CARS Community page on facebook and posted that just to get my question answered and you did.

    Indeed, never ever post a link of this website here, it attracts unwanted people.

    It's non-news if you ask me. Is anyone actually surprised that the wheels are set in motion for a sequel already? Project CARS took (almost) 4 years from scratch to release. So part of the team will work on additional content/features and bugfixing, while the other starts on the next project. Or do you want to wait 6 years after release for the sequel?

    ^Yup. I did expect an announcement like this even earlier (as they are late compared to other studios). And I'm in for pcars2 again, that's a no brainer!

    I hate it when people already take about next game so early. I think case even before the game get released. It is obvious if the game decent interest which I think it does there will be another game some years down the line. Unless this game bombs which I don't think will happen.

    When it comes to franchises, the sequel is almost always in production before the launch of its predecessor

    ^ Indeed.

    SMS can't sit their asses down on their hands just to make some gamers somehow feel good. They have a business to run and bills to pay. The only "Problem" here is that SMS are so open that people get more information than they can handle... ;)

    News at 11; Developer has a long-term vision for their new IP.

    Anyway, good to know that the WMD forum will in some form open up for us new users at release.

    Considering they have to rebuild most of the engine for dx12 it's no surprise.

    Has this been discussed or is this just a foregone conclusion for games in the next year or two? I haven't kept up on DX12:scared:

    Ive seen it mentioned on WMD an many other interviews with developers of software. I after reading up on it we won't see it's full effect until a few years time. Consoles user won't benefit much either.

    Us poor console owners, I dread to think how far we will be behind PC games in 2-3 years time.

    Dx12 just improves the efficiency and get more performance out of the hardware. Consoles already do that.

    Even if there is one, it affects no-one in the slightest. A sequel to a game only means anything if the original game has been out for a while and people want new features that can't just be patched in.
