    Will pCars2 be a long term project?

    So I can expect bug fixes, expansions, DLCs from the developer in the next several years?

    Nobody knows. But if with 'long term' you mean 'like rF2 or iRacing' then no. There will be DLC, bug fixes and such, but pC3 will come after pC2 although how long afterwards no-one knows yet.

    With so many tracks to ride on?. Way to go until getting bored of it, just like in pc1 which still is as fun as it was before.

    The four DLCs will come only to expand it even further.

    Let's hope for Mugello being one of the DLC tracks..

    If you expect it to be another endless science project like other games in the market, Pcars 2 will not another.

    I rather see SMS move on to the next game after 1 year+ with Pcars 2.

    I fully expect a 2 year lifecycle, much like pCARS1 was.

    To me, that's a realistic and appropriate schedule.

    Now, about that WMD3 sign up........ when will we hear about that? This time, I AM IN!!

    A two-year lifecycle for a recurrent strikes me as about right on present-day hardware. Long gone are the days when one year was plenty--the snail-pace evolution of the NHL series is Exhibit A AFAIC--but Gran Turismo is coming up on only its seventh official title in two decades, which goes too far the other way.

    was it really 2 years though, didn't support drastically fall after 12months?

    If the game is in good shape i would be happy with a year tbh as long as they work on 3. 2 would be even better. As well as DLC I really hope they add features like custom grid & championships dont really care about anything else.

    Feels like the Project CARS brand as a whole is, excuse the pun, the overarching "project" and each iteration of the sim whether it be 1, 2 or possibly 3 feels like a new build of that vision... so in a sense it does seem like a long term project just stretched out over various releases rather than constantly downloading slightly updated builds every couple of weeks onto the same base software. I'm sure there'll be patches that either add, fix or refine little bits over time as that's the nature of gaming we live in nowadays but I can't imagine anything to the extent of Iracing which in my opinion is no bad thing thing.

    What I fear the most is that they end up changing the handling through some patch even if it was perfect from the scratch in the 1.0 version.

    I seriously hope they don't touch it if it's so good from the beginning.

    Very good arcade racing games like Driveclub did that and the stealthy filthy way by the way in an effort to make the game more accessible to scrubs, and they kind of ruined the handling and the physics eventually. That hurt a lot, and still does.

    I don't expect this. The lifecycle of PCars 1 was only so short because they had no more money at release. That's why they want to bring a sequel to fix all the issues from the first game. If PCars 2 runs better (and that is what I expect), then they will support it for a longer cycle, I guess. BTW the new generation of consoles has just been released. So they must wait for a while to get more powerful hardware to implement new features and better graphics (especially VR).
