Developer Milestone have not ruled out the possibility to once again make a bid for the official WRC license.
Alex Zucca, the lead director for Milestone's upcoming rally title Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo, was asked by Redbull whether they would be interested in getting the license back. Alex Zucca stated “Certainly the license carries with it a unique series content that attract a specific niche of fans – but never say never.”
The first four games of the most recent WRC series (not to be confused with the Playstation 2 era by Evolution Studios) were developed by Milestone. They have since lost ownership of the official license which is currently being held by Kylotonn Games who will release the fifth iteration of the modern WRC series on October 16.
Zucca however said that you don't need an official license to make a fun game “We found that it is not necessary to have an official license to create a rewarding and fun experience”.
