We first heard that Project CARS 3 was in "very early pre-production" back in January 2019, with developer Slightly Mad Studios acquiring new talent to fuel the latest game in the Project CARS franchise.
Well, now we have the Project CARS 3 announcement trailer, check it out: Before I comment about the trailer, in July 2019 I reported that Slightly Mad Studios CEO Ian Bell said that Project CARS 3 would be a "revolution" and a "game changer" for the franchise.
Well, it's definitely a game changer as the developer has moved away from what made Project CARS... well... Project CARS.
Check them out: If we rewind back to January 2019, when SMS boss Ian Bell said: "I'll let you know that Project CARS 3 will be more 'focused'... More 'fun'... We went to insane lengths with variation in pCARS2 and with that comes infinite balancing issues.
It seems like the studio has shifted far more towards "fun" with Project CARS 3, and that might not be a good thing for the franchise.
