Latest news - Assetto Corsa 2 release window revealed
According to the report, Assetto Corsa 2 is set for a Spring 2024 release. That narrows the release window to between March and June 2024. “The second version of Assetto Corsa is currently in development and its launch is scheduled for Spring 2024.”
This update comes after a 2021 report announced Assetto Corsa 2 is "in development" with a vague 2024 release window. Exciting times for fans of the sim-racing genre who are eagerly awaiting news about the next game.
Whilst that may seem a fair way out, the frequent content additions to AC and ACC help keep the games fresh, as well as the modding community. This has helped the longevity of the original titles in the first place.
Although Assetto Corsa 2 now has a release window, very little is known about the game. However, unlike Assetto Corsa Competizione, which focuses on GT racing cars, we expect the car roster to feature a mix of road cars and thoroughbred racecars like the original game.
While some fans were hoping Assetto Corsa 2 will utilise Unreal Engine 5, Kunos SImulazioni has confirmed the sequel will instead run on a new in-house engine like the original.
This will lead to incredible graphics and even more lifelike physics within the title. This is in contrast to Assetto Corsa Competizione, which runs on Unreal Engine 4.
Assetto Corsa 2's platforms are yet to be confirmed, but PC will likely be the primary platform. This was the case for the original as it allowed for community modding support.
Console ports for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S will likely follow at a later date.
