If you heard the news we broke yesterday, this may not surprise you. But now it’s official: we’ll be careening around race tracks from all over the world in Project CARS 2 this September.
The news first came in a post about Porsche, where developer Slightly Mad Studios accidentally let slip the September 22 date. The post was quickly changed to “late 2017” but the cat had still been momentarily let out of the bag.
The now-official date comes by way of an E3 sizzle trailer that popped up on the PCARS YouTube account. The video not only reveals the release date, but also gives us a glimpse of some of the new machinery we can expect to pilot this fall. Our eagle-eyed community has already picked out a few of the new offerings:
- Ferrari F40 LM/Competizione
- Ferrari 365 Daytona
- Ligier JS P2
- Toyota GT-One
- Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
- Mercedes-Benz C-Class
- Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Trans Am
- Renault Megane Touring Car
- Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG Touring Car
Watch the video for yourself and see if you can pick out any new additions to the game! Let our community know in the Project CARS 2 section of our forums as we continue to unravel the trailer.
The video also shows off new circuits. Texas Motor Speedway is one such new reveal, as well as the historic layout of the Monza circuit in Italy. The latter is a popular inclusion in rival sim racer Assetto Corsa.
SMS head honcho Ian Bell, who himself predicted a “Septemberish” release window way back in January, expressed his mutual excitement by commenting, “Giving it large!” Now that we have confirmation on a release date for the highly anticipated sim racer, we can look forward to even more info to be revealed at E3. The Electronics Entertainment Expo takes place next week, and we’ll be on location covering the madness.
