What is this that I hear of pCARS2 already in the making? Aren't a lot of additions already planned out for the current pCARS that wouldn't be necessary for a sequel? If DLCs and fans' requests are help expanding pCARS, what is the point of a pCARS2?

Guess you could say the same with GTA I, II, III, IV, V etc. Always a reason for a sequel, even if the current game still has more to come. No reason PCars 1 cannot continue to improve while some other guys in the studio get on with their next game. Can't sit on your laurels.

They want to make a franchise like Gran turismo and forza!

I hope they don't make as many games as GT & Forza as I feel like they got progressively worse as they went on. I personally would like to see maybe 1 more highly polished racing game with some great expansions rather than 3 or 4 sequels.

I would hope that they would think of this engine as modular and all the "sequels" would be releases of classes of cars.

For instance - they release an F1 2015 season expansion. Then follow up with a V8 Supercars expansion. So forth and so on. Kind of an... a-la-carte racing sim. We, the consumers, get to pick and choose what "modules" we want.

"I feel like F1 today" - buy/download the F1 expansion. "Today will be a LeMans day!" - buy/download LeMans expansion.

Something like what RaceRoom has going.

Well, release an expansion pack. Or just take my money, I have no need for it anyway, too busy doing some laps in the game :D

Actually I want to change my ansaw.

It's there job to make games, to make money to feed the pet hamster called hammy! Image poor ian, coming home to little Hammy who is to hungry to spin round in his little wheel. Sad I know...

A happy hamster is a happy life!

It'll probably be a while (at least the retail release) pCARS 1 was 3.5 years.

I hope they don't change the physics too much from one to another.

I swear FM4 felt completely different to FM3 with its 'sim' steering and then FM5 felt completely different again, gets a little tedious.

Anyway I look forward to a combination of track and rally which I believe is coming in PC2 :).

I agree and I would expect not personally. Physics is mighty hard to get right and Project Cars has pretty much nailed it I think. The bug reports etc. on this forum tend to be gameplay/interface related. The fact physics hardly gets a mention on this forum is perhaps because people think it is correct. Same with the graphics - stunning, and no mention on the forum of that either. No need to change physics unless they do new surfaces, snow etc.! ;)

If PC2 is anywhere near the state of PC1 when its released on PS4 doubt you'll get mine.

State? I thought the PS4 version was excellent as shipped, even better now.

Anyway, we don't want money from the unpleasables. It will be a full development system and those who can't work with us 'as if in an office' won't be allowed to stay.

Adding loose surface racing is one of the main new aspects we plan for pCARS2 yes.

look I really appreciate the time you guys have put in i really do so much so that i PAID for your product , but lets be honest and fair , the PS4 version was not "excellent" it was and is a good game, but fundemental's that you would expect to work didnt like proper tyre wear and some of those things are still not working "properly" in the patch.

Im not an "unpleaseable" but it is frustrating when things dont work as you would expect them to at launch. Tyre wear i feel is one of them , not to mention all the others little "niggles" that everyone has mentioned.

You mean since 1.4 that completely broke pit stops? Once thats fixed, yes it will be better then at launch. Aside from that rather big issue, yes its in a great state.

Cant wait to see future titles from you guys though.

Ok so "crowd funding/Investing/world mass development" was forced to be stopped last time due to regulations. how are people going to take part in the development next time around since we can't "Invest" into Pcars2? are you going to base your development solely on profits from Pcars1?

I'm looking at you Ian, no one worded answers please. I would love to be part of the development for the next installment, you already have my commitment!

I'll give you some fuzzy details since it's being formulated behind the scenes at the moment.

On the economic side, since the FSA became aware, there's a heightened "regulator risk" that I think Ian/SMS would like to avoid. And with the financial success of pCARS1.0 there's less of a need to "tap into" the community funding aspect of it for pCARS2.0 than there was for pCARS1.0 back in 2011.

There will be a way for new non-WMD people to join WMD for pCARS2.0, you will all likely get the notice at this very forum, probably with a yellow banner at the top of the webpage with a link to the announcement/instructions. Remember, ONLY PC builds will be available for testing, NO CONSOLE BUILDS! You've been warned/educated.

Pcars2 will only be available on pc, PS5 and XBtwo as both ps4 and xbone builds will have been cancelled by then. There will also likely be a beta for the new wii u but that wont get released as the frame rate wont be good enough. Ps4 owners, dont forget, when you buy your new ps5 your g29 wont work with it, you will need to buy the new g31, which should be released around two years after the ps5, expect to pay double what the g29 cost you.
