Have you happened to notice any obvious modifications to the banner above? A crudely inserted snippet of info which clearly indicates we’re deeper into the bowels of the sim racing scene than many of our critics would like to believe? There’s a reason for that.
We’ve received word from a trusted individual that the team at Turn 10 Studios – creators of the commercially successful Forza Motorsport line of Xbox exclusive car collecting simulators – are working on a deal to purchase Kunos Simulazioni. The move would no doubt serve to change the course of Assetto Corsa as a franchise. Many once believed the glaring set of issues and unfinished elements within Assetto Corsa would be rectified in the as of yet unannounced sequel, but Kunos developers themselves have admitted that no AC2 folder exists on their desktops. Instead, it now appears Kunos staff members will set off to aid in the development of Forza Motorsport 7 for the Xbox One and Windows 10.
Could this be an elaborate ruse to fuck with PRC.net? Absolutely. Could this business deal fall through behind closed doors at the eleventh hour? Of course.
However, the individual responsible for circulating this info was the same individual who informed us of Assetto Corsa’s next generation console plans, weeks before it was formally announced by the Kunos Simulazioni team themselves. Mr. 9000 Forum Posts simply has no idea what a non-disclosure agreement actually means, and even though we no longer have direct contact with him, those that do are quick to forward any info leaks directly to our inbox.
We’ll have more info as it becomes available.
