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.
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 January 2023. You can sign up for the closed beta here on the official website.
After this, an open beta is due to launch in the spring. 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 so far. Most of them are GT3 racing cars such as 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.
In terms of 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 will still be the main platform however as it will benefit from an active modding community and esports tournaments hosted by ESL Gaming.
