With over eight million copies of Assetto Corsa sold, a sequel was inevitable. But when is Assetto Corsa 2 coming out?

We know that Assetto Corsa 2 is in development, but when is the new sim racer coming out? And will console players have to wait longer than PC players? Here's everything we know about the Assetto Corsa 2 release date.

Latest news: Assetto Corsa 2 "is not just a sequel," says Kunos Simulazioni

While Assetto Corsa 2 has yet to be unveiled, Kunos Simulazioni is setting player expectations high for the sequel, hinting that it's "not just a sequel."

“The new Assetto Corsa is going to follow what we did with Assetto Corsa ‘1,’” Kunos Simulazioni’s executive manager, Marco Massarutto, said in a recent interview.

While he didn’t reveal any further details, he teased that “it is not just a sequel, it is much, much, more. It’s definitely not a spin-off like Competizione.”

Assetto Corsa 2 delayed to Summer 2024

Originally set for a Spring 2024 release, Assetto Corsa 2 has been pushed back until Summer 2024. This was confirmed in a press release by Digital Bros, the parent company of Kunos Simulazioni and 505 Games.

Kunos Simulazioni was aiming to release Assetto Corsa 2 within the next fiscal year ending July 2024, so it should arrive in June or July 2024.

Assetto Corsa 2 release date

Assetto Corsa 2 doesn't have a specific release date yet. However, Digital Bros (the parent company of Assetto Corsa developer Kunos Simulazioni and publisher 505 Games) has confirmed that Asseto Corsa 2 is set for a Summer 2024 release.

A previous Digital Bros financial report confirmed Kunos Simulazioni aims to launch Assetto Corsa 2 in the next fiscal year ending in July, so the sequel should arrive in June or July 2024.

Originally slated for a Spring 2024 release window, Assetto Corsa 2 was delayed to give Kunos Simulazioni more time to work on Assetto Corsa Competizione's Season 2024 GT World Challenge DLC pack, which sees the highly requested Nurburgring Nordschleife join the track roster.

That's still a long time to wait, but Assetto Corsa continues to enjoy modding support from the community. Likewise, Assetto Corsa Competizione has received a plethora of DLC cars and tracks to keep the game fresh.

Platforms

The Summer 2024 release window only applies to the PC version. Digital Bros confirmed that Assetto Corsa 2 will initially get a Steam Early Access release, so the final game may not arrive until late 2024 or sometime in 2025.

As for other platforms, a console release is planned in the "long-term", but no release window is set. Going by the last two games, console players will probably need to wait at least an extra year to play Assetto Corsa 2.

Console platforms are yet to be confirmed, but it's safe to assume Assetto Corsa 2 will launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S and skip the last-gen consoles. This will allow Kunos to fully utilise the power of the current-gen consoles.

New engine

Unfortunately, not much else is known about Assetto Corsa 2 at this stage. However, we do know that Assetto Corsa 2 will be built on a brand-new in-house engine rather than Unreal Engine 5.

This was also the case for the original game but not Assetto Corsa Competizione, which utilises Unreal Engine 4.

We also expect Assetto Corsa 2 to focus on road cars as well as thoroughbred racing cars. This means the car roster will have more variety than Assetto Corsa Competizione, which only includes GT racing cars, allowing Assetto Corsa 2 to compete with Gran Turismo 7 and Forza Motorsport on consoles.

As for platforms, PC will once again be the primary platform and will likely allow for modding support. Console ports will follow after at an unspecified date to bring Assetto Corsa 2 to a broader audience.
