Former Simbin employee Simon Lundell has formed a new development studio with the aim of creating a sequel to Simbin’s still-popular GT Legends title.
11 years after it’s original release, Lundell has confirmed that his development studio Tiny Feet Studios is working on a sequel, talking to RaceDepartment:
“Ever since the SimBin bankruptcy I have been working towards the GT Legends rebirth. I finally have all the paperwork in place to let you know of our plans. There are a lot challenges, and a long project, ahead of us but we remain excited and motivated for the challenges ahead and look forward to bringing a game people will love to race “
Released in 2005, GT Legends was created by the core-team that later formed Blimey! Games & Slightly Mad Studios, simulating the FIA Historic GT & Touring Car Championships that offered racing with historic cars on modern day circuits.
It’s not yet known whether the new title will follow the same formula or go for an “all-historic” route with historic tracks as well as no further details on the new title are available yet.
GT Legends proved to have some amazing longevity as not only did the original game remain popular with sim racers to this very day, the game’s content has also been used as a base for popular mods such as Power & Glory for GTR2 and Historic GT & Touring Cars for rFactor.
