    I have just been reading that Slightly Mad Studios & EA have:

    Has the FIA given out the licence to more than one company?

    Nothing has been confirmed that SimBin have it yet ;)

    Although ISI and rFactor2 seem to have at the very least a partial licence.

    It would seem a little strange to me Gunthar. It can only devalue the license from a monetary perspective to allow more than one company to hold the rights.

    It's possible, and maybe more likely that ISI have direct license deals with specific teams and/manufacturers if they don't include the whole shebang.

    I did also read that they never stated that they (EA) had the exclusive licence

    I still strongly hope that GTR3 will have the GT1 championship featured. Especially for some of the tracks in the series that we have never seen in racing games before:
    - ordos
    - beijing

    Usually EA is pretty quick to brag if they have an exclusive license, so...
