It’s been rumoured for yonks and it’s finally been revealed - Project CARS 2) and published by Bandai Namco, Fast and Furious Crossroads will be timed to coincide with the theatre release of the nine Fast & Furious movie.
UPDATE: And just like that, it appears Slightly Mad Studios' slightly mad plan for a new high-end console could be dead in the water.
Considering it’s just about the biggest movie license in the world, Fast & Furious tie-ins have been few and far between. There was, of course, the hilariously shite Fast & Furious: Showdown, and the Fast & Furious Car Pack for Forza Horizon 2, but genuine offerings have been thin on the ground. Not for much longer. Slightly Mad Studios, they of Project Cars 2 fame, has effectively self-confirmed it is working on an official Fast & Furious game.
Project Cars 2 will not be using Denuvo Anti-Tamper DRM, Slightly Mad Studios’ head Ian Bell has confirmed.With all the games running Denuvo lately, it can be refreshing when a big budget title comes along that actually opts to avoid the controversial DRM service.
Forget Forza 7. Move over GT Sport. For hardcore racing enthusiasts, there's only one true champion to the sim crown - Project CARS. Now Slightly Mad Studios is back with Project CARS 2, promising the most authentic and detailed racing simulator yet. Everything has been painstakingly recreated in frankly ridiculous detail, and it shows in the official Project CARS 2 PC system requirements.
And so the E3 juggernaut trundles into view with our first E3 trailer. Slightly Mad Studios’ Project CARS has quickly made a name for itself as the sim enthusiasts racer of choice, providing an incredibly detailed and deep simulation of racing alongside near as dammit photorealistic visuals. Fans of gawping at chrome alloys and stitched seats should be pleased to find out Bandai Namco will be publishing Project CARS 2 on September 22nd for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. 
It’s been one of the gaming industry’s worst kept secrets, but at long last Bandai Namco has come out and officially announced Project CARS 2. It’s joined by the swankiest of new trailers showing off the near-photorealistic visuals, and engine lighting and weather upgrades.
Slightly Mad Studios, the developer of Project CARS, has announced that the next iteration in the franchise is now available for crowdfunding on the WMDPortal, just like its predecessor. The devs have detailed that development of Project CARS 2 will not interfere with any subsequent plans for the current one and it'll continue to receive tonnes of updates and content through this whole year.
