NASCAR Heat Evolution developers Dusenberry Martin Racing rebranded and confirm new game to launch towards the end of 2017. With NASCAR Heat Evolution universally considered to have fallen rather short of players expectations back in 2016, the development team behind the title have gone to great lengths this winter to restructure and reassess their priorities as they gear up to hopefully produce a new game worthy of the official NASCAR racing licence. Whilst retaining the considerable might of Monster Games to work on the sequel to NASCAR Heat Evolution, the now newly titled 704games have looked to expand their back office staff and re focus their attentions to the popular series, with work having already begun on a new Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC release of the NASCAR franchise. As part of the rebranding announcement today, 704games have confirmed the signing of industry veteran and former NASCAR Senior Vice President Paul Brooks as the studio's new CEO. According to the official announcement Brooks spent 19 years with NASCAR in various leadership roles including Senior Vice President of NASCAR and President of NASCAR Media Group. In 2016, Brooks became an investor in Dusenberry Martin Racing and serves as Chairman of the Board. “With decades of game development and publishing experience across our entire team at 704Games, there is tremendous opportunity for our future,” said Brooks. “Not only will 704Games offer new platforms for fans to get in the action of their favourite sport and continue to help introduce fans to NASCAR with high-quality and innovative products, but we’re also developing areas to expand our gaming library to new places. 704Games will continue to hold NASCAR’s exclusive console simulation-style video game license. The company will release its first NASCAR-branded mobile racing game this spring, as well as a much-anticipated sequel to its 2016 console game, NASCAR Heat Evolution, this fall.
