Slightly Mad Studios seek investment for PS4 Project CARS

Project CARS has been the subject of an on-going investigation by the FSA, who are questioning the ethics of Slightly Mad Studio's WMD crowd-funding scheme, which they believe falsely advertises as an investment opportunity. Unsurprisingly, many have feared that the outcome could put the project in dire jeopardy. 

Fortunately, Slightly Mad Studios has now shed some light on the subject. In a post on the WMD forum sourced by NeoGAF, Head of Studio Ian Bell assured fans that a solution to the situation has been found which will allow investment to continue: "I've just had a call from our lawyer and we have a solution and a system to allow investment into the projects going forward", he stated. 
 
This wasn't the only piece of enlightening news, however. The recent revelation that Project CARS is now on track for a Q2 2014 release sparked hopes that a next generation release on PS4 and the next Xbox would be on the cards. Slightly Mad neither confirmed or denied these implications, maintaining that Project CARS is still slated for release on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.

Now, though, it seems that the prospect of Project CARS being ported onto PS4 is indeed a possibility, as Ian hinted at future investment plans: "First up will be the PS4 and Durango versions opened for investment. Yes, I said INVESTMENT. smile", he continued. "I should also mention that we're now official PS4 developers."

Hopefully we will get an official announcement with more details soon. One thing is for sure, though: having the the talented UK-basedteam on-board with the PS4 can only bring good things to the sim racing world, so we here at Team VVV cannot wait to learn more.

The change in technical regulations was always going to be a challenge, even more so for the teams that are not directly working with other automotive brands or sales, both in developing technology, sharing resources or in generating additional income from that research. It's a changing face of motorsport and a shame that teams now seem more reliant on pay drivers than ever before. Let's hope...
