Motorsports games announced that they had entered a “Relationship [exclusive] long term “with IndyCar to develop a game and official electronic sports events under the banner of this license.
Its IndyCar-related Motorsport Games-licensed launch game is scheduled to launch in 2023 on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC, although according to the announcement, its next esports events could “start early this year.”
No further details have been confirmed at this time.
“Motorsport Games and IndyCar are pleased to be able to provide fans with a long-awaited gaming experience,” said Motorsport Games CEO Dmitry Kozko in a statement issued with the partnership announcement. “After decades of chasing international fame, we couldn’t think of a league more deserving of a video game license. IndyCar shares our desire to bring authentic experiences back to motorsport fans. “
Although IndyCar cars appear in many modern racing games (Forza Motorsport, Project CARS, and iRacing, for example), the last IndyCar standalone game was IndyCar Series 2005 (developed by Codemasters) released for PS2, Xbox, and PC in 2004. .
Recently, Motorsport Games confirmed that it will release its first game for a new NASCAR dedicated series this year, while the Heat license is discontinued. NASCAR 21 will run on Unreal Engine and the Studio 397 “rFactor 2” physics engine. Motorsport Games is also working on a game based on the British Touring Car Championship.
