Slightly Mad Studios has just announced the sequel to its latest racing game, Project CARS 2.
Shouldn't they just build upon the current Project CARS, the one they JUST released? Also not sure how I feel about crowd-funded games selling DLC.
Like the famous Steve Miller song. "Take the Profit and Run" why fund our own games when they sell decently well when we can get others to do it.
So they're taking and keeping all the money they earned from the first project cars and expecting us to fund the sequel?? LOL! I hope this trend doesn't catch on like DLC.
Agreed 100%. I wish all makers of racing franchises would follow this business model. We don't need sequels to any one racing franchise within the same generation anymore. Just release your game and then support it for the duration of that particular generation with season passes. When a new generation starts, THAT'S the time to introduce a new version. I keep praying that Evolution Studios will announce a season 2 for Driveclub because frankly, that engine is perfect or damn near it.
Anyone think this is ridiculous? Yeah, me too.
Na I'm happy about this news. Project CARS was fantastic in some areas but severely lacking in others. Hopefully number 2 can address that.
Why not just extend Project Cars? does it really need a sequel announcement already?
Yeah, I think they're Slightly Mad.
So Im guessing the WiiU version of the first one is a no go?

This announcement seems to have got the back up some people who think SMS should fix up the current game first before working on a sequel. Hopefully and I assume this is the case they will still have people working on the original while the new one is being developed. If not, then rightly so - GO TO HELL!
So you sell 1million+ copies yet you still ask us to pay twice for your next game?
What do you mean with twice?! If you back the game you even get it cheaper! Some people are just ignorant...what is your problem?! You don't have to fund it! haters!
People love to spread fud and misinformation unfortunately. Only negative stuff gets reactions.
lol what a f*ckin joke. I've supported this since beta. Go f*ck yourself Slightly Mad Studios. I'll stick with Assetto Corsa. Million times better anyway.
are you serious? alreay?!
Hmm this seems rather soon. Why not just get some solid ground work in before announcing it. Games are getting announced far too early these days which only leads to a massive hype train to which meeting expectation is never possible. Build the game and six months before its ready announce it. Simple.
Sounds good. Still enjoying the first game. Although it has it's flaws..
I think this is normal for Devs to start a new game shortly after launch because developement takes at least 2 years. Publishers normaly don't announce the games that early, but they need the game to be financed from the beginning. So work on the sequel, while supporting the first game
what if they just got better at public relations, Could of just said that do to the initial success of project cars we can now star t to envision project cars 2 with continued support. As for me I downloaded project cars the day it came out and not thrilled about it and wont be doing that with them again. should of waited for forza 6.
This is shit you sold 1+ million copies so 70+ millions $ u can make project cars 2 and 3 yourself
Yes, because 100% of the $60 goes to them, right???.....
Off course not but, they get to biggest part because they own tip and they find the money for it not bandai namco ho pay for it and dont forget games in eu is 60-70 euro so is more than 60$
I wonder if they announced it so they can have a game to put on Nintendo's next console instead of finishing the first game for Wii U... just speculation, regardless of how silly it seems.
Still have to pick first part and find time to play:/ so many games, so little time especially in summer time:/
Wow Project CARS must have sold really well.
how if there asking gamers to fund it lol
They must think people are gullible if they think they will get funding after selling millions of copies of the first game.
They could really take a leaf out of Evolution's book with their post-launch work on DC, this is totally disrespectful to the folk that made the first game happen... and jesus, look at me, talking about it in the past tense like it's nothing; it came out 2 MONTHS ago (after interminable delays, I might add), way to spit in the faces of those that dropped money on this. I think (rightfully) will rub gamers the wrong way, haven't they completely failed on what they intended to do originally (constantly evolving with community feedback) by doing this? They're clearly going to wayside PCARS 1 when the sequel gets set in motion. They can get stuffed!
Well ain't that a b*tch. This is the new way for "starving" devs to pass all financial risk to gamers. Time to cross these guys off the list...
la la la the milky way.... la la la la la.
Better have a car lineup that satisfies me, because the first one don't! most of them in the lineup are race cars, and just several road cars. No japanese cars(except one), and no american cars(except one). If the lineup don't have a difference from the first one, i'll just wait on asseto corsa and GT7. @Tzuno LOL
The original game looks solid and I'd love to play it, the trouble is though I'm a big fan of Forza and 6 looks incredible. So maybe I'll just hang on for it. Also fix the first game ffs before starting the second, how many years of delays already and it was borked on day one. Forza 5 worked day one as a launch title running on basically a beta api that was garbage.
Despite that they just released their game, BUT seriously all these feature could easily add it in a patch and if they want to charge for it (WHICH IS DUMB IT SHOULD BE IN THE FIRST GAME) have an expansion pack.
