MotoGP 24 will be the official video game of the 2024 MotoGP season. While the game hasn't been announced yet, we know it'll be on the way.

Milestone has an agreement with MotoGP running until at least 2026, so this franchise isn't going anywhere anytime soon! So, what can we expect from the 2024 MotoGP game and what do we already know?

We've got everything you need to know right here!

MotoGP 24: The 2024 MotoGP Game

MotoGP 23 was a blast and we were really impressed by it. Milestone consistently makes the best motorcycle games around and the MotoGP series is the jewel in their crown.

MotoGP 24 will include the entire 2024 season, including fully licenced circuits, teams and riders.

You'll be able to enjoy these in popular offline game modes such as Career Mode and Managerial Mode, as well as online with your friends in multiplayer.

Riders and Teams

As the official game of the 2024 MotoGP season, it shouldn't come as a surprise that all of the teams, bikes and riders are officially licenced. That means that the entire 2024 MotoGP grid will be in MotoGP 24.

Despite the first round being a few months away, the entire 2024 MotoGP grid is already set:

  • Aprillia Racing: Maverick Vinales & Aleix Espargaro
  • Trackhouse: Raul Fernandez & Miguel Oliveira
  • Ducati: Francesco Bagnaia & Enea Bastianini
  • Prima Pramac: Franco Morbidelli & Jorge Martin
  • Gresini Racing: Alex Marquez & Marc Marquez
  • Pertamina Enduro: Fabio Di Giannantonio & Marco Bezzecchi
  • LCR Honda: Johann Zarco & Takaaki Nakagami
  • Honda Team: Luca Marini & Joan Mir
  • GasGas: Pedro Acosta & Augusto Fernandez
  • KTM: Brad Binder & Jack Miller
  • Yamaha: Fabio Quartararo & Alex Rins

In addition to MotoGP, there will also be the official rosters and bikes for the Moto2, Moto3 and MotoE support series.

Tracks

The 2023 MotoGP calendar was a record-breaker in terms of length, but the 2024 schedule is even longer. 20 races was a record in 2023, but 2024 is set to have 22 Grands Prix.

The 20 races from 2023 return, alongside the Kazakh Grand Prix, which was delayed due to the circuit not being ready. The Aragon Grand Prix is also back after taking a hiatus in 2023.

  2. Portugal: Portimao
  3. Argentina: Termas de Rio Hondo
  4. Americas: Circuit of the Americas
  5. Spain: Jerez
  6. France: Bugatti Circuit, Le Mans
  7. Catalonia: Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya
  8. Italy: Mugello
  9. Kazakhstan: Sokol
  10. Dutch TT: Assen
  11. Germany: Sachsenring
  12. Britain: Silverstone
  13. Austria: Red Bull Ring
  14. Aragon: MotorLand
  15. San Marino: Misano
  16. India: Buddh International Circuit
  17. Indonesia: Mandalika
  18. Japan: Motegi
  19. Australia: Phillip Island
  20. Thailand: Chang
  21. Malaysia: Sepang
  22. Valencia: Circuit Ricardo Tormo

Historical Circuits

There are more circuits than just those on the upcoming calendar, though. "Historical Circuits" from seasons gone by are also available in MotoGP and we expect those from 23 to also be in 24.

So, the following should be included alongside the 22 from the 2024 calendar:

  • Donington Park (Britain)
  • Laguna Seca (USA)
  • Indianapolis (USA)
  • Brno (Czech Republic)
  • Estoril (Portugal)

Will "Nine" Return?

One of the biggest things we missed in MotoGP 23 was "Nine". The Nine season mode was a huge selling point for MotoGP 22, as it was a look back at the classic 2009 MotoGP season.

With all but one circuit from the '09 season already in the game, this made for a complete experience, as you jumped in the saddle of the protagonists of the 2009 season.

There were also live-action cutscenes interspersed in the game mode to make it have a documentary style feel. So, could we see this return in MotoGP 24?

Well, it's certainly possible, but it'd need to be based around a different season in MotoGP. It'd also need to be fairly modern to make the physics engine work but be before Milestone took over the series in 2013.

Perhaps this could be based around 2006, which is generally considered by MotoGP fans to be one of, if not the best season in the sport's history.

Consoles

MotoGP 23 was available on all current systems, so expect MotoGP 24 to release on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

There were questions surrounding whether the game would be launched on the last-gen systems of the PS4 and Xbox One, though. Milestone opted to keep the game available on these both, as they're still very popular systems.

Will that still be the case for 2024, though? Well, both Hot Wheels Unleashed 2 and Ride 5 have been next-gen exclusives, so that could be the case for MotoGP 24 as well.

If that happens, then a MotoGP 24 Nintendo Switch would also be in doubt.

Release Date

MotoGP 24 hasn't been officially revealed yet, but that doesn't mean that we can't make an educated guess for when this will happen. However, MotoGP 23's release date was later than normal, launching on 30th June.

MotoGP 23's Announcement Trailer was also revealed later than expected, being uploaded on 30th March.

Historically, the MotoGP game was released in late April, being one of the first to be launched of the yearly motorsports franchise game. MotoGP 23 could signal a change though, so we don't see MotoGP 24 being launched in the Spring.

So, keep your eyes peeled for a reveal trailer in late March, with the game itself being launched in either late June or early July.
