OK, so that's buried it for me. The trailer set major alarm bells ringing, the Corvette video gave some hope, but this just cements that the direction they're taking is not for me no matter how good the underlying physics might be. It's not so much that I do loads of long races needing pitstops, I don't, but the wider implications that others have already mentioned. No damage? No point if it can't be repaired. Magical all-weather tyres that perform like slicks in the dry and wets when it rains? It's that or no variable weather, and magic tyres are about as not-a-sim as it gets. Thing is, they keep banging on about "fun". They seem to have forgotten that for a lot of us, there is as much fun to be had in all the other bits of motorsport as the actual driving-fast-against-others. For the record, I love pCARS2 - I wouldn't have 1100+ hours and counting in it if I didn't. The £100 I spent on a WMD2 membership all those years ago is probably the best £100 I ever spent, in terms of the enjoyment it gave me both during development and after release. Thiis just makes me sad as much as anything else. pCARS3 was already a wait-and-see, now I'm just glad I bought AMS2 last week - there is at least still a proper, new sim to play based on the foundations I enjoy so much. I'm just sorry for my like-minded console buddies that are losing one of their few proper sim options going forward.
