Featured Slightly Mad Studios to Announce New IP?

    Slightly Mad Studios head man Ian Bell has teased fans about an upcoming announcement.. a new game IP from the developers that brought you Project CARS and Need for Speed..


    With Project CARS already out and taking on established PC and console racing rivals, plus with Project CARS 2 development well underway and the upcoming free to play Red Bull Air Race game also picking up pace one would be forgiven for thinking SMS already have enough on their plate, not so says Slightly Mad Studios Head Ian Bell!

    Speaking with fans over on the GTP forum, Bell admitted Slightly Mad Studios have "massive news" unrelated to the Project CARS franchise, stating they intend to announce "a new franchise (that's) very VERY exciting".

    So with previous titles Project CARS, Test Drive Ferrari Racing, Shift 2 Unleashed and Need for Speed Shift under its belt, what could the new IP mean for SMS?

    When pushed on if the announcement relates to a racing title, Bell was cagey in his reply, responding "Yes, sort of", which only heightens the curiosity around the future reveal.

    Stay tuned to RaceDepartment for more news on what Slightly Mad Studios have up their sleeve as and when it becomes available....

    Can't even begin to tell you how tired I am of this bull-feces.
    This is obviously just my own opinion, and I can't speak for RaceDepartment, but....
    If Ian Bell has news to share, then share it.
    If not, STFU.

    Boat racing sim? :laugh:
    Wouldn't mind an open world game ala Forza Horizon 3 as well, but with good physics and FFB (better then PCars1)

    That game is already released. I think it was released back in November 2016.


    Say that to Milestone. They already have 3 announced, but unreleased game. And who said that this new IP is a sim?
