Today, (or probably yesterday), Reiza Studios, developers of the criminally underrated Game Stock Car Extreme, announced their crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo. The video alone previews some crazy new content coming to the fantastic Brazilian-centric racing sim, including but not limited to:
This news comes right after crowdfunding for Project CARS 2 was announced, and although rumors of Reiza resorting to crowdfunding in order to finish up the unlicensed V8 Supercars DLC were rapidly circulating, nobody knew how far they were willing to take this new business model.
With rFactor 2 stuck in development hell, Game Stock Car Extreme is seen as the true successor to rFactor and is increasing in popularity with each passing week. After my time spent in RaceDepartment’s V8 Stock Car League, it’s safe to say that I’m eagerly anticipating the new selection of content, and will pursue a spot in whatever serious leagues open up. And I think it’s the right call for Reiza to go down this route. The entire list of planned DLC is epic and covers a broad range of worldwide motorsports series that will flesh out what’s currently a very good but very South American-oriented racing sim.
