In a series of direct-reply tweets, Slightly Mad CEO Ian Bell — creator of the Project CARS series and the recently announced “Mad Box” gaming console — mocked the 28-year-old rapper known as Soulja Boy with pictures of himself holding wads of cash and lounging on a yacht with five women.
Slightly Mad Studios has been dominated the news cycle in 2019 so far. Between an entirely new console and confirmation of Project CARS 3, the UK studio has been busy. We know to not expect the Mad Box before 2022, but it will be a bit of a wait for the team’s next mainline sim racer too.
2019 is off to a wild start for Slightly Mad Studios and its CEO, Ian Bell, after he revealed the studio is not only working on Project CARS 3 — it is building its own gaming console dubbed the “MadBox“. Yesterday, we got a preview of what the hardware looks like, and now we learn more about the software (and games) that will run on it.
The sim racing season has begun. Okay, it arguably kicked off a month ago with F1 2017 (read our review), but for those looking for a game featuring multiple disciplines, Project CARS 2 is the real starting point.
To say that 2017 is a good year for racing games would be an understatement. We’ve already had DiRT 4 and F1 2017 from the house of Codemasters and this fall, the Big Three of sim racing games is going to get involved.
The boys at Slightly Mad Studios have provided yet more details on the online aspects of Project CARS 2. The news, covering esports and multiplayer options, comes courtesy of the last official live stream.
