Assetto Corsa: Pre-Orders Delayed
Sad news for those of you that are (im)patiently awaiting the arrival of Assetto Corsa as Kunos just announced on Facebook that pre-orders are on hold due to typical bureaucracy reasons that are nowadays very common in the EU/EUSSR.
Unfortunately in Italy where Kunos Simulazioni is based things aren’t any different than to the rest of Europe where honest hardworking small companies get buried under a massive pile of legislation.
Time to make some clarification about the rumors related to pre-orders. We confirm we worked on this matter in the last two months. When we supposed that the entire process was almost ready to be started, our lead programmer unofficially confirmed on his personal twitter account that pre-orders would start very soon. This was supposed to be true. Sadly, in our Country the laws related to e-commerce are very complicated and inadequate for the digital distribution. At the last minute, just a couple of days before to launch the pre-order, we have been informed about some additional documentation and rules that don’t allow us to start the pre-order phase already set. This has nothing to do with Steam nor with the development of the game, it’s just bureaucracy. We understand you can be disappointed about it, but well, you can figure how much we are too. Anyway, if we made any mistake or lack in communication, we apologize for it. Everyone can make mistakes, we are not better than any other.
Now we are working on a different strategy, with the aim to meet -as soon as possible – your wishes and our needs. As soon as we are able to give you more information, we’ll update you with more details, through our official channels. Meanwhile, thank you for your kind patience and support.
