Even though Project CARS isn’t coming out for another few weeks, it looks like a sequel is already being planned.
Posting on the World of Mass Development forums, Slightly Mad Studios head Ian Bell mentioned some ideas on the development of Project CARS 2, explaining that the company will be “continuing the WMD setup for pCARS2.”
A very short update for now as I’m jet-lagged to hell and back but the good news is that we will be continuing the WMD setup for pCARS2.
We will open new forum sections when the game (pCARS1) ships to support the new users and you WMD experts will all have access and we’d greatly appreciate your assistance advising new users.
I’ll be implementing a new non-profit return form of WMD for pCARS2 (to avoid the FSA hassle) and will set a purchase time limit of 2-3 months for those who want to take part. Following this, involvement will be closed. The tiers won’t have the higher cost options that we currently have (probably capped at 100 pounds with excellent benefits) and those who want to approach me personally to invest in the new game can do so providing it’s at or above 50k.
I planned to release the above information with a new web page explaining the details of each purchase tier but we’re insanely busy and haven’t found the time. I’m aware though that I promised an update so here it is.
In short, we want to continue and extend the community involvement in the pCARS brand which has proven to be so very effective and we want to ensure this great community lives on and thrives into the future.
Whether or not Project CARS 2 is officially in the works remains to be seen, but it certainly sounds like it is. What are your thoughts on the sequel being worked on before the Project CARS is even out?
