Slightly Mad Studios is celebrating a major milestone today as their WMD-powered Project CARS title has sold more than one million copies around the globe since being released four weeks ago!
Being available on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One, Project CARS has been a strong seller ever since hitting the shelves, becoming the first Bandai Namco-distributed game to spend two consecutive weeks on top of the UK sales charts since Ridge Racer Type 4 sixteen years ago.
Project CARS success also had a noticeable effect on the sim racing hardware industry as reported yesterday.
“Throughout the development of Project CARS the community were instrumental in guiding the game – giving us feedback daily on each build iteration, telling us what needed improving, highlighting what they’d like to see included, and ultimately approving it as the racing game of their dreams”, Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios commented.
“Even with this amount of early indication that the bold, ambitious vision we had was on track to be something that would truly stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the existing leading titles in the genre, it wasn’t until the first review scores came in that we truly realised how much Project CARS had resonated with both media, racing professionals, and gamers alike around the world. To now stand here having reached over a million players in such a short time really justifies the work both the team and the community have done over the years and solidifies Project CARS’ future as the multi-platform racing experience of choice for fans around the world. And we’ll be talking more about that future very, very soon”
