Kunos Simulazioni has supported Assetto Corsa Competizione over the years with a wealth of updates from new cars and tracks to livery packs. But as the studio’s focus shifts onto the upcoming sequel Assetto Corsa Evo (aka Assetto Corsa 2), the future of the official GT World Challenge simulation looks uncertain.

2024 GT World Challenge livery DLC confirmed

Speaking to Italian gaming magazine (localized by Traxion.GG), Kunos Simulazioni Co-founder Marco Massarutto confirmed plans to release 2024 GT World Challenge liveries following the release of the Nurburgring 24h Pack and Ford Mustang GT3 DLC.

“With [Assetto Corsa Competizione], we have all the plans confirmed up to and including ‘24,” said Marco. New 2024 liveries won’t be released before the 24 Hours of Spa race, which takes place on June 29 – 30.

“We are waiting for the 24 Hours of Spa because there are a whole series of new liveries for the cars to implement and then close the, let’s say, the 2024 season,” Massarutto explained.

No plans for 2025 support

However, post-launch support for Assetto Corsa Competizione beyond 2024 looks uncertain as the team shifts focus to Assetto Corsa Evo. “On ‘25 [ACC support], we don’t give confirmations because at the moment we are completely focused on [Assetto Corsa] Evo,” said Massarutto.

Even though it’s six years old, Assetto Corsa Competizione is still one of the most popular racing simulations, so many fans will be disappointed to see post-launch support end - especially as there is no mod support.

Assetto Corsa Evo is expected to launch in early access this summer on PC. Details on the anticipated sequel are slim as Kunos has only unveiled the game’s logo so far.

In a recent interview, Massarutto teased that Assetto Corsa Evo is “not just a sequel” and will “follow what we did with Assetto Corsa ‘1.’” Coupled with a new in-game screenshot allegedly showing the interior of a Hyundai i20 N, this suggests Assetto Corsa Evo will primarily focus on road cars like the original.

Considering it's been six years since Assetto Corsa Competizione, we're excited to see where Kunos takes the series next. Hopefully, it won't be long until we get a first look at Assetto Corsa Evo in action.
