Project CARS has managed to hit a lot of the right buttons with racing fans. The immersive gameplay, and the graphics are some of the most touted aspects of the game. All this has added up to the game selling over one-million copies worldwide.
The news was announced on the official Project CARS website in a blog post. In it they touted that the game is the highest rated PlayStation 4 racing title available. They even go on to reiterate that the game was created ‘for the fans, by the fans’. Head of Slightly Mad Studios, Ian Bell had the following to say regarding the announcement.
“Throughout the development of Project CARS the community were instrumental in guiding the game – giving us feedback daily on each build iteration, telling us what needed improving, highlighting what they’d like to see included, and ultimately approving it as the racing game of their dreams. Even with this amount of early indication that the bold, ambitious vision we had was on track to be something that would truly stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the existing leading titles in the genre, it wasn’t until the first review scores came in that we truly realised how much Project CARS had resonated with both media, racing professionals, and gamers alike around the world. To now stand here having reached over a million players in such a short time really justifies the work both the team and the community have done over the years and solidifies Project CARS’ future as the multi-platform racing experience of choice for fans around the world. And we’ll be talking more about that future very, very soon”
It seems that at the end there, Ian teased something, possible DLC to be announced at E3 2015 given that it is only mere days away. Be it cars or tracks I am sure fans will love whatever Slightly Mad Studios adds to the game.
