Now this is something interesting. Over at the official forums of Project CARS (that are no accessible to those who have not contributed to it), a new poll went live in which the company wanted to find out whether it should shift development over the next-gen platforms or not. If that happens, PC gamers can expect a DX11-only title and the platforms in which Project CARS is gonna be available will be PC, XBOne, PS4 and WiiU.
As Ian Bell wrote:
“I think we should stop work on PS3 and Xbox 360 and use those resources to make a start on the PS4 and Xbox One.
We’d continue with WiiU and of course PC.
Of course nothing is certain at this point, however we can easily see why Slightly Mad Studios’ employees think this way. Project CARS will be released in 2014, and by that time both of the aforementioned next-gen consoles will have a – somehow – healthy fanbase.
Project CARS looks stunning as of right now, and it will be interesting to see whether its environments can be further overhauled. Without limiting the team to the current-gen consoles, we might get even better visuals.
