V-WTCC 2012 Cancelled
Back in March, Simbin announced the 2012 Virtual WTCC reviving the concept that first made its debut in 2008.
Unfortunately, the studio has now decided to cancel the V-WTCC until a later date as Simbin’s Marcus Jaeger has issued the following statement:
It is very busy times for SimBin and we are focusing very hard on our upcoming project(s). For that reason we have decided it is wise to postpone any continuation of the V-WTCC project up until a later date.
We have taken this decision in order to maintain focus on new game technologies in development. With our teams hard at work building our next generation of games, the scope and vision of the V-WTCC series compelled us to postpone the V-WTCC concept as it is now. It is our belief that such a series deserves to be done utilizing our latest game and web technologies. We’ve got a big year ahead of us, and while postponing this project was a difficult decision to make, we believe the road ahead will reveal that it was done for all the right reasons.
The V-WTCC was planned to be a points-based hot lap competition as players would have been invited to join in either from home or from Simbin’s gamepark at selected WTCC events.
Part of plan was the release of a free to play title, a plan that has now been cancelled in favor of Simbin’s other work in progress titles.
