Rennsport (German for “racing”) is looking to shake up sim racing and challenge the likes of iRacing, Assetto Corsa, and rFactor 2. Developer Competition Company is making some bold claims, but when can we take Rennsport for a spin? Here’s what we know about the Rennsport release date.
Latest news - Rennsport closed beta date revealed
After a long delay, the Rennsport closed beta is just around the corner.
Competition Company has revealed the Rennsport closed beta date: start your engines on 6 June.
50% of the invites are first come first serve while the other 50% are randomly chosen, so be sure to check your inbox to find out if you're chosen for the beta.
Rennsport release date
Rennsport is set for release in December 2023. Unfortunately, we don’t have a more specific date than that yet.
However, if you’re interested in trying this new sim racing challenger, you might be able to try an early version soon.
Closed beta coming soon
While some lucky players are currently trialling a closed alpha build of Rennsport, developer Competition Company is planning to launch a closed beta in June 2023. You can sign up for the closed beta here on the official website.
After this, an open beta is due to launch later this year. In this stage, all fans and sim racing enthusiasts can access Rennsport.
As for what you can expect in the beta, only a handful of cars have been confirmed. Most are GT3 racing cars like the Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo, Porsche 911 GT3R, and BMW M4 GT3.
One exception is the Porsche Mission R, with more car types expected in the final game.
As for tracks, recreations of Hockenheimring and the Goodwood Hillclimb have been shown off in screenshots and gameplay videos.
Rennsport is slated for PC only for now, but console versions are in the pipeline.
PC is still the primary platform, however, as it will benefit from an active modding community and esports tournaments hosted by ESL Gaming.
