'Project Cars' developer is already crowdfunding a sequel

Now that Project Cars is finally out after several delays, Slightly Mad Studios has decided that it's time to begin raising funds for the game's sequel. According to its creators, who were also the folks behind Need for Speed, Project Cars 2 will have 50 locations, over 200 racing tracks and eight disciplines (including Rallycross, Hillclimbs and Touge). It will also have a co-op mode, where you and a friend can play as each other's driver, spotter and co-pilot. The studio has already set up a crowdfunding page on World of Mass Development with multiple tiers and rewards, the lowest of which costs £50 ($79).

Fans with deep pockets can go for the £10,000 ($15,816) option if they want to play an active role during the game's development, an AI opponent and a race team named after them, various paraphernalia as well as a Michelin-starred dinner and a weekend stay in London. The studio plans to release Project Cars 2 for the PC, PS4, Xbox One and Steam OS. Those who've already bought the first iteration don't have to worry, though: the developers promise more on-demand content for the game while developing the sequel.
