It has been confirmed today that the highly-respected racing sim Assetto Corsa will not be receiving any further updates.
The announcement came via a community FAQ blog by developer Kunos Simulazioni, the full statement can be seen below.
What is going to happen to Assetto Corsa now you’re working on Competizione?
The game will continue to be available for purchase, servers for multiplayer and lobbies will be kept open and active for as long as people continue to play it. The game will not receive further updates now (It has now been 7 years since AC development started and 4 years from its 1.0 release) Our entire team is now focused on AC Competizione.
As feared, it looks like the upcoming release of Assetto Corsa Ultimate Edition will indeed be the last hurrah for the sim. The Ultimate Edition, which will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners on April 20 and priced at £29.99, includes every car and track ever released for the racing simulation.
Of course, once the development team has released Assetto Corsa Competizione there's always a chance of an Assetto Corsa sequel, especially considering we are nearing the end of the current console cycle.
