    We sit down with Kunos Simulazioni Co-Founder, Brand & Product Manager Marco Massarutto to talk Assetto Corsa Competizione past, present and future..

    At the recent SRO E-Sport GT Series event in Monza, we took the opportunity to spend some time with Marco Massarutto of Kunos Simulazioni and ask him about the Steam Early Access title Assetto Corsa Competizione - the official game of the Blancpain GT Series.

    Taking part in a special media event on the Friday prior to commencement of the new SRO E-Sport GT Series, Marco takes the time to give some insight into the development of Assetto Corsa Competizione, talking about how the game is progressing following Kunos move to Unreal Engine 4, what the future holds and plenty more besides.

    Enjoy!

    For more about the SRO E-Sport GT Series, head over to the official forum and connect with your fellow eSport drivers!

    So they're working on the 2019 cars/track update plus a surprise they can't disclose yet.
    He mentioned the surprise again when asked about adding other SRO series/content. I'm getting excited about this surprise already :)

    Paul's amazon wishlist:

    Tascam DR-10L X2

    All jokes aside, I really recommend the DR10L, In my opinion is way better than using a wireless lavalier system.

    lol, yeah it got heavy I must admit. At this point, I forgot to switch arms to ease the pressure.. rookie mistake :)

    As for the DR-10L X2... nice as that would be, I've only just bought this one! Will be sticking with me for a while longer yet (plus the wife made the RD logos for the mic flag, so it needs more air time before an upgrade can be acquired..!)

    Great (sim) news, always like to see this type of coverage.:cool:

    Speaking of "console vs Steam" versions, I hope that the PC version is a more pure iteration of the game. *Not to say that the AC console version was "dumbed down", but it felt different to me on the Xbox when I tried it...I always wondered if it was changed a bit in order to work on the weaker hardware. (I'm assuming they will release ACC for console in the future)

    Great interview asked all the right questions.
    So I gathered...
    ACC will be coming to console
    It is a simulation not a game
    No to triples
    If you want VR you must buy a 2080ti
    A surprise is looming
    Unreal engine is a pain in the arse to work with
    It's pronounced Stefaino not Stephaaano

    This is what I love about Kunos, they are transparent, honest, and real.

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing. WE had 2 Sennheiser G3 lav mics in the bag but in all honesty I didn't think the interview would last over 30 mins haha.

    Seriously, RD, you need another mic.

    Made me think of this
    Marco, you need to channel more Ayrton.

    @Paul Jeffrey you need to take more liberties with your interviewees if you're going to make it big time!

    It would be nice for the future if they could still stick with the Blancpain series, but also hoping they would do the American Blancpain GT3 series and all the American tracks they race on. I have mods for AC1 that somewhat cover the tracks and cars. Just a suggestion for the future. Good video review. take care

    You could edit the video with a buzzer and Red X everytime Kunos man mentions a Game, and a bell and Tick when he mentions Simulator. :)

    Great interview and questions. I really like the kunos guys but it’s starting to feel like this UE4 experiment was a mistake.
