Since its May 7 debut, Slightly Mad Studios’ Project CARS has already sold over one milion units on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Studio head Ian Bell attributed the successful sales milestone to feedback received by the community during development.
“Throughout development, 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,” said Bell.
“Even with this amount of early indication, it wasn’t until the first review scores came in that we truly realized 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.”
Bell said the team will be discuss more on the future of Project CARS “very, very soon.”
The Wii U version of the game is still in development, but has been relayed as the team is working on optimizing the racer on the console.
