If you’ve been itching for more news on Slightly Mad Studios’ surprise mobile title, it won’t be long now. The team has promised more info will land in February.
It’s been quite a while since the initial PCARS GO announcement last May. But Nathan Bell — yes, the son of company founder Ian — shared the latest update recently on Twitter. The social media platform has proven quite popular with the team in 2019, as it’s been the location of the Mad Box console announcement (and its final design) too.
Update on @ProjectCARSGO. I know you guys are screaming for info. It's coming next month. You'll see exactly what all the fuss is about, why it's bloody awesome – as well as info on our unique control system.

Bell promises a unique control system, which will surely please sim racers that find the usual tilt approach lacking. In further responses, he also confirms that both Android and Apple platforms are part of the current development process.
An inquiry about the game’s free or paid nature led Bell to respond with a question of his own: “would you prefer a set price or a balanced F2P system?” The mention of a balanced system suggests the team is considering that free-to-play option, but we just don’t know.
What we do know about the game is that SMS is promising an “adrenaline pumping racing game” in partnership with South Korean publisher Gamevil. There will be licensed cars and extensive customization — the latter of which would be new to the franchise.
More will be revealed soon. Stay tuned for more news on Project CARS GO during February.
