    SMS has said there will not be monthly DLC, so likely no.

    To be honest, I don't know how they did the monthly patches for PC1. That was insane from a dev perspective. Ian has mentioned in some posts it really did put a strain on the team trying to keep up with the monthly updates which also lead to some Q&A issues. While a month seems like a long time from a consumer standpoint, from a dev standpoint it's insanely short.

    Ian has mentioned that updates/DLC will be further apart for PC2 than they were for PC1.

    Fully agree, and the cars in PCARS 2 are absolutely golden, You really want to drive them all! Not like in Forza where quantity seems to be the key and you end up with garbage like the Pontiac Aztec, lol. I prefer the quality over quantity approach from SMS, with a reduced number of cars they can still update sound per car (which they are doing) and controller handling per car (which they are also doing). In Forza cars are just one big pile of generic things on wheels.

    I hope post-release there will be more focus on extra tracks than on extra cars. With 170+ cars in the game IMO we basically have enough to drive, more cars will be most likely similar to existing ones anyway. But more tracks... you can never have enough of that, especially with livetrack 3.0, dynamic weather, night/day cycles, seasons, custom championships, esports, ... new tracks really keep all that fresh and fun. And especially esports, if new cars come out competitive players will most likely keep playing their best cars so there is nothing new to watch for esports spectators. For new tracks on the other hand, it just requires the organizer to include these tracks and bam.... there is something new to watch for the spectators.

    Part of the reason for the "free car every month" was originally an "apology" move by SMS for the numerous and lengthy delays for the original release. For that reason alone, I don't expect to see them this time around.

    I also don't expect to see monthly DLCs (Ian already cnfirmed this), and I also expect to see higher prices this time around. Ian also already confirmed that the DLCs will be fewer and further between, but they would have more content than last release.

    I think it would be interesting if SMS gave DLC codes as prizes for winners of community events, official SMS online races, etc.
