Slightly Mad Studios has revealed that Project CARS has now sold over 2 million copies.
Ian Bell, CEO at Slightly Mad Studios, said: “The multi-million sales of Project CARS validates not only our revolutionary racing simulation, but also our unique World of Mass Development platform. From the onset, we believed that our groundbreaking way of funding games, alongside our commitment to working with our customers and listening to what they wanted from a racing simulation, would push us in the right direction.”
Stephen Viljoen, Project CARS Game Director, said: “We’re really proud of what we have created with Project CARS. Two million sales shows that there will always be a place for games made with passion and craftsmanship. This gives all of us working hard every day on the Project CARS franchise an adrenaline boost as we strive to keep creating the games and features our fans want.”
You could say that Project CARS naturally evolved from the Need for Speed Shift series which to be fair didn't quite know what it wanted to be. Project CARS carries over many elements from Shift but instead has a clear focus on simulation and does away with any superfluous presentation of any sort.
We reviewed Project CARS and thought it was “a landmark racing game” which provided an uncompromising experience to bridge the gap between the PC and console markets. You can read our extensive review on Project CARS here, congratulations Slightly Mad Studios.
