Bandai Namco and Slightly Mad Studios have announced that Project CARS has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide. Unfortunately, Bandai Namco did not reveal the sales per platform.
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, added:
“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.”
Bandai Namco also claimed that Project CARS is the market leader in racing Esport: it is the featured racing simulator at the Intel Extreme Masters events in Shanghai and Oakland, as well as being the racing simulation of choice for Red Bull 5G, and ESL competitions throughout the year.
Project CARS is a racing game that featured amazing graphics, a lovely dynamic time of day and weather system, deep tuning capability, and pit stop functionality. The game also supports both VR headsets for the PC; the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.
Project CARS was featured in our Top 10 most optimized PC games of 2015. As we said back then:
“Project CARS is easily the most impressive – visually – racing game on the PC. Not only that, but it’s one of the few titles that saw noticeable improvements thanks to numerous patches, Slightly Mad Studios has managed to implement various performance improvements, slightly resolve the game’s CPU issues, and add some new rain effects that come a bit closer to those found in Driveclub. The game packs a lot of graphics options to tweak, supports a wide variety of wheels and scales well on multiple CPU cores.”
