Project Cars 2 Is Coming in Fall 2017

The developer behind the simulation racer says it expects to release the game "Septemberish".

The next entry in the crowdfunded Project CARS series looks set for a Fall 2017 launch, according to developer Slightly Mad Studios. The game was first announced in June 2015 and is planned for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC like the first game. The sequel is going to add Rallycross and cooperative racing to the series.

"It's still a very tight run as we're a bit behind on GUI and Career so nothing is set in stone yet. Current guess is Septemberish," said Slightly Mad Studios CEO Ian Bell when asked about the game's release on the official forums. "We've started QA already. We plan at least 7 months of QA for polishing and bug fixing."

Bell also said that Project CARS 2 won't be missing any of the major car brands this time around. The first game was hit for missing cars from high-end maker like Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Porsche.

The first game was originally also slated to come to the Wii U, but ultimately the developer determined that the platform couldn't handle the game. Project CARS 2 has not been announced for the Nintendo Switch at all.
