    Question Will my Fanatec CSR work on PS4 with PCars 2?

    I have a fanatec CSR wheel (an oldy but it works fine). pcars 1 is the only game that supports it on PS4. My question is, will it work on pcars 2?

    That won't be up to SMS, that will be up to Sony.

    It is exceedingly unlikely.

    Sony is now dictating which devices can be supported in new titles through their controller/hardware licensing program. This is, unfortunately, a complete reversal of their historical stance, wherein they left wheel support up to the individual publishers.

    All indications are that Fanatec is working on a new, officially licensed product for the PS4. They have already released the CSL Elite, which is compatible with the XB1. There is no clear information on why the XB1 device has been released, but nothing for the PS4. All we can guess is politics. The reversal of policy caught Fanatec flat-footed, and we can imagine created some tension between the companies.

    In any case, Sony's current policies would prohibit SMS from supporting your wheel.

    You can be sure that SMS will not be allowed to support anything but licensed hardware in pCARS2. So your CSR will not work with it natively, maybe it will work via CronusMax.

Those who have Fanatec hardware can choose not to download the update or use CronusMax as earlier suggested. I am seriously considering not buying Pcars2 until Pcars is patched to work as well as the PC version or give a discount for PS4 disk version of Pcars2 to compensate for the incomplete game we now have because of the bias given to non supported hardware versus those who played by the rules and purchased supported hardware.
    Why would pc2 not be released because of Sony's pissing contest? What's your source, or at least, the logic behind this?

    How much did you pay for the 2 dlc tracks: nur combined works online. Silverstone classic doesn't, but works offline. So, $0.50?

    Fanatec was a supported wheel. Those that spent their hard-earned on Fanatec gear on PS4 "played by the same rules" as you. Recently, Sony changed their tune. It's not Fanatec, Fanatec users or SMS' fault.

    I'm fully in support of SMS decision to not update pcars and keep Fanatec support.

    You can still have fanatec support with Pcars 2 if fanatec doesn't come out with a ps4 wheel by the. I just got my Cronusmax pro working today with my ps4. I'm now able to play assetto corsa with my Fanatec v2, v3 pedals, and th8a shifter. All force feedback and buttons work, couldn't be happier!
