    Simbin Teaser.jpg
    SimBin Studios UK, the developer behind the in progress GTR3 title, have revealed a new teaser image on LinkedIn... prompting plenty of intrigue as to what it means...

    Having first announced the plans to develop GTR3 right here at RaceDepartment, development has been a long and often frustratingly quiet process over at SimBin UK HQ, with prolonged periods of radio silence from the development team leaving many to question if GTR3 is indeed still going ahead, or if the title has again faded back into the background as happened with the initial attempts to relaunch this incredible franchise before RaceRoom Racing Experience broke into the light back in 2013.

    However things seem to be moving ahead now, with the odd picture and post appearing on the internet in recent weeks, topped recently by the image at the head of this article.. indicating that things are very much moving forward - no doubt much to the delight of fans looking forward to seeing what the newly reformed SimBin Studios UK team can achieve with the follow up to one of the most well regarded racing simulations in recent years.

    So with the teaser above now on the internet, do you think it looks like we might be getting some much needed news on the title soon?

    If you are looking forward to GTR 3 and want to join in the excitement with your fellow GTR fans then head over to the GTR 3 sub forum here at RaceDepartment.

    I'm hoping this becomes reality eventually.

    I know all the hype is around ACC but if done right GTR3 could be a serious competitor.

    GTR2 was (and is) a very complete sim/game and if SimBin can recreate some of that in GTR3 (and maybe make it more than just GT3 class) it could be a very interesting sim.

    Looking forward to the updates as they happen.

    I'll have whatever they are cooking. Loved their previous meals and I am sure their upcoming dishes will be tasty as well. Great find Paul!

    I really hope were gonna hear some info on this title soon but that image could be taken 2 ways having a checkered flag over a car.

    The game is nearing completion
    Or
    The title is done and put on the backburner again.

    Hopefully the first :)

    I could be mistaken but the image seems very similar to the original one they posted yrs ago but had a black sheet over it?

    Anything to keep the competition from getting lazy is a good thing. I keep hovering over reinstalling GTR2 in my steam library given how great it was / is

    I'm highly skeptical anything noteworthy will come out of SimBin in the next 3 years. Throwing once a year a cryptic message and a random picture achieves nothing - you're merely reminding people you're not quite out of business yet.

    From time to time even now, I will still fire up GTR2, in my opinion that is proof enough to how good it was..I am sure this title will appear and if its a modern GTR2 I will be very happy :thumbsup:

    Pretty much at the same time the image was posted (on Linkedin of all sites), they also posted a job advertisement for the position of a vehicle physics programmer. Don't think they would be looking for one if the game was put on the backburner (and don't think they would post the image).

    Just how many years till this game actually becomes something playable?

    Actually I'm too optimistic...how many years till people will finally understand it was all but a name and not a game?

    Btw, looks like an R8LMS to me.

    Not really sure how GTR3 would stand out against something like ACC (& SRO partnership) ....
    more tracks?
    Or a new Official ADAC GT masters?

    Your thoughts?

    Having never played GTR2 but hearing so many great things about it, I'll be excited if this becomes a reality. The more the merrier.

    A GTR3 would be a success anyway. We are waiting the game since ever.
    If in the end Simbin will release the game and this will have full modding support on pc, it will be a success.
