Project CARS 1 and 2 are taken out of the showroom

If you’re still considering buying a Project CARS game and you want it to be a good one, be quick. Slightly Mad Studios is making a mandatory sweep through its showroom and Project CARS 1 and 2 are about to be taken off the shop floor. You’ll have until October 31 to get your hands on the first entry. Its sequel retires on September 21.

It’s not that the developer wants to put pressure on you or anything. But as is the case with many racing games, Project CARS leans heavily on licenses. And those licenses aren’t valid forever. As you might be able to guess right now, the licenses for both games are about to expire.

Now, this won’t mean that you won’t be able to play Project CARS 1 and 2 if you already own them. As stated by the studio in the tweet above, both games remain playable. The expiring licenses only affect sales since publishers aren’t allowed to sell anything without a valid one. And that makes perfect sense.

And hey, it doesn’t mean that there won’t be a Project CARS game on the market after September 21. I mean, Project CARS 3 is still going to be out there, even if it can’t hold a candle to the other two. Because really, if you’re looking for a truly realistic racing sim experience and not an arcade racer, stick with the first two games in the series.
