    "After seeing the totally undoctored, universally positive reaction on the official forum to the announcement of Project Cars 2, we are delighted to announce that Project Cars 3 is in the works".

    Wait, they are crowd funding it again?!?

    I thought it was bad enough them doing it off their own backs with PC1 in the state it is in, but this? The sheer, unadulterated gall of these people.

    If we all chip in, do you think we could afford the 10k pledge and tell the developer how much bullshit this is?

    If the official forum is anything to go by, he'll have a bunch of happy little helpers on standby to eject you from the dinner party as soon as you have anything remotely derogatory to say about any facet of the game.

    I find that really disappointing. They should have at the very least set out their vision on what is getting fixed in the current game.

    Crowd funding the sequel seems a bit odd considering it must have sold well on top of the raised funds first time around. Plus I'd wager most of the tech, cars and tracks will carry over to pCars 2 so development costs and time must be lower?

    From the bullet points it definitely sounds like they're going after iRacing this time around.

    You have been banned for the following reason:
    No reason was specified.

    Date the ban will be lifted: Never

    All I did was ask why they were announcing pCars 2 then pCars 1 needed so much fixing

    So they release a currently broken game and announce that work has started on the second game funded by the fans already!

    It doesn't look good on paper and I'm not to happy about the idea. It must pull resources of the current game that needs fixing. But then I think most devs work on there next game soon after release the only difference being there not fan funded or made public knowledge. For instance, Fallout 4 was being worked on after the release of fallout 3 but wasn't public knowledge until news of Fallout 4 was released.

    This leaves a sour taste, but in the meantime I'll see if they fix the problems in the first game. If not, they can do one.

    Wow, the fucking brass balls on SMS. Modern gaming cuntery, ladies and gents.

    I held off buying Project Cars until you lot had a hands on. The irritating bugs made me hold off a bit longer. Reports of performance enhancing patches but no bug fixes and now this probably mean I will pick it up when it costs about a fiver.

    I'm guessing the original will be fairly cheap when the totally superfluous sequel is released. Is there any reason they couldn't just release an expansion?

    This sort of behaviour is worse than the sequel announcement, imo.

    Banning you instantly for daring to ask what the ____ is going on?


    First game in years i feel like i've just thrown money down the drain on.

    @H1ggyLTD Head of studio. For only 10000 you can have dinner with him at a Michelin stared London restaurant as part of the Diamond package.

    Right can we get enough of us to pitch in for the Diamond package to go along and just slap some sense into him?

    @y2rich Looking at their tracker they've already had 2 people drop 1k each on the Plat level. I wish I could throw that kind of money away.

    Set up a Kickstarter to raise the ten grand to give that fellow a slap?

    Fucking horseshit on so many levels.

    PCars 1 isn't remotely finished, which is putting it very politely. A more harshly worded summerisation would be that they have failed to launch a product in a fit enough state to justify asking for 44.99 RRP. Also, it's surely sold enough on top of the Kickstarter funds for another crowdfunding jaunt to be unnecessary at best, cynical exploitation of the rabid fanboyism present in their forums at worst.

    And whatever the fuck happened to "PCars will be a content platform"? Which, unless I'm losing it, I'm pretty sure they said in their original pitch.

    Maybe it's too early to judge whether they'll can any progress for the first, but surely they can see how this looks from the outside. If they do halt the ongoing production of PCars 1, leaving it in the state it's in, then that'll be an insult to anyone who gave them money, be it Kickstarter or from buying the game at retail.

    Maybe they have split their team - half continue to work on PCars, the other half start work on PCARS2?

    Also, if it follows the blueprint of the first game, it won't be out for another 3/4 years anyway?

    /positive spin?

    Also, why announce this now?

    If I was a backer of the first game, whose return on my investment depended on solid sales at retail and online, I'd be absolutely furious right now. The first has literally just been released, so let it sell through first. Who the fuck is going to buy it now it's sequel has been announced. "But give us more money though".

    So, not only are they blinkered twats when responding to any constructive criticism, they are also pants at basic business principles.
