Automobilista Delayed

rFactor2 2016-02-27 17-07-38-41

We’re late to the party on this one, but as the old saying goes, “better late than never.” While the team at Reiza Studios had planned to release Automobilista on Steam’s Early Access platform this past Friday, the sheer length of time required to upload the game onto Valve’s popular PC gaming marketplace “took longer than expected” according to Renato Simioni. Thankfully, the delay appears to be entirely unrelated to any last-minute bug fixing, meaning sim racers should not worry that this minor delay is a sign that the highly anticipated racing sim will ship with a bag of ugly surprises as Project CARS and Assetto Corsa did. Participants in the closed beta program have had a fully working copy of the game for about a week, and no major issues have been reported to the public.

Automobilista’s biggest selling point is the departure away from South American content. The upcoming Reiza Studios PC racing simulator still features all of the major tracks and auto racing series seen in South American, but the developer has gone the extra mile to include an entire cast of additional cars and tracks intended to attract sim racers around the world who may not have otherwise checked out the title. Highly accurate renditions of world-renowned series such as Australia’s V8 Supercars and Stadium Super Trucks make an appearance alongside several historic Formula One entries, and the focus is no longer primarily on the 2015 Stock Car Brasil season.

  1. I’m still butthurt that Reiza never gave me a Steam key. It took them like 2 weeks to reply to my support email asking to turn my off-Steam purchase into a Steam one and they never got back to me.

  2. I’d assume, based on the fact that the only reason for the delay was some bad time management and the fact that Valve don’t allow games to be released on Saturday and Sunday, that we’ll be getting it Monday (or Tuesday, in my case).

  3. Indeed can be true, but usually the nasty ones are more vocal and receive the most visibility.
    This guy seems like a gamer who plays more console racing games and for sure he received his dose of nasty things over there as well.
