    Looks like those eagle eyed staff at RaceDepartment who regularly read the Russian financial news spotted the new partner

    If my translator works, it means SMS has been bought?

    I'm shocked. I've asked him: https://twitter.com/EduAsturbo/statu...52104287019008

    http://www.modernpick.com/

    They say they have sold million copies of AAA racing games and they own the engine.

    Obviusly the are talking about PCARS & Madness Engine.

    There definitely are a lot of pCARS screenshots on the website of Modern Pick. And they are located in Singapore, where Ian spent the last years.

    Edit: Mathias Lauda seems to be their Vice President. Wasn't he last involved with SimBin???

    So that's what the tweet about GT Legends or a rally game was about. "With the original team than made it". So a different team than SMS...

    Indeed. I thought the same, cpc.

    Many things fits now. May be are good news. Now that it is in the media, probably they publish a despatch soon.

    I'm not worried, because this should be planned long time ago, and looks that will be good for the future.

    SMS are the team that made GT Legends (except they are bigger now).

    I was wondering if they were running short of cash as crowdfunding these titles seemed a bit desperate. Between PC1 and PC2 SMS produced the RedBull air racing game. They haven't released anything since PC2 almost 2 years ago and the PC Go project seems to be delayed and the Fast & Furious game no where near release.
