Maybe not a true simulator, but it sure came out of left field.  No one saw this coming.  So if you play the NASCAR Heat series, you may have heard of driver Tony Stewart.  He won championships and was quite the driver back in his day.

Well he teamed up with Monster Games (Remember them?) and released "Tony Stewart's All American Racing."  Sure it doesn't have the biggest budget, but it's current the biggest surprise release getting really positive reviews for a back to basics racing game on a dirt race track in Anywhere, USA on a Saturday night.

The developers say they are working on more tracks and possibly more racing leagues to on top of the three they included.  While not as polished as say Wreckfest maybe, it certainly seems to show promise with the early praise. 

The game company, Monster Games used to make the original NASCAR Heart series that was known for it's realism in the early 2000s until they lost the rights to NASCAR games when EA took ownership and drug it through the mud.  Now Monster Games is doing what they love and making another racing game in what can likely be seen as a successor to their Test Drive: Eve of Destruction game that also took place in rural America on dirt tracks.  It was a hidden gem of a game and a personal favorite growing up.

PROJECT CARS THREE HAS RELEASED.

Article

If you liked PC1 and PC2, don't get PC3.  It's the biggest disappointment.  They moved away from simulation and it's just arcade now.  Graphics downgrade.  It's a big F-YOU to the fans and supporters.

We also got Gran Turismo 7 announced.


Hopefully a GT with a thousand cars like old games and not just a few hundred.

Gran Turismo needs more cars too, and more modern cars.  They've been stuck in their ways since the 90s it seems.  We need more average everyday cars which is what made GT so popular.  Not just super cars.

Not fully a simulator, but a racing game that is a bit different.

^ I got NewCity when it was super cheap early on.  I played it for a little bit, but not since the sandbox update.  That's what I have always wanted. :D  Can't wait to try it again.  It had a ton of potential.

Is it like Sim City 3000 or something?   I've been watching it's development but it's hard for me to tell.

Probably one of the most realistic damage modeling games with a crazy realistic driving simulation has had an update.  BEAMNG Drive.  Crazy they still don't have a better name for this game yet.

Article: Playstation Lifestyle

Gran Turismo 7 Will Be More Like Classic GT Titles Rather Than Taking After Gran Turismo Sport

Gran Turismo 7 will mark a return to the classic games in the series. In an interview with Octane, Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi stated that while e-sports will factor into the game, they won’t be as big a focus as they were in the last title, Gran Turismo Sport.


As Yamauchi explained, Gran Turismo Sport “took on the challenge of full-scale e-sports” in a move away from the traditional model of previous games. The problem is it didn’t sell as well. The game did manage to attract 9.5 million players in the end, but “it didn’t sell explosively from the beginning“. The reason for this was seemingly because it “may have seemed quite outlandish for some people”. As such, Gran Turismo 7 will keep some e-sports elements, like the FIA-certified Gran Turismo Championships, but the game will return to the classic and nostalgic feel of games like Gran Turismo 1-4. It will “provide the best Gran Turismo experience at present”.

The development of the game has been very drawn out. First teased for PlayStation 4 back in 2013, everything went quiet as GT Sport was released instead. The title was then leaked for a 2020 release before being officially unveiled for PS5 last year. Developing the title for the latest PlayStation console will mean it can make use of many of the console’s features, like fast loading, 3D audio, haptic feedback, Adaptive Triggers, 4K support, HDR, and a target frame rate of 60 frames-per-second. Ray tracing will especially make a large difference to the game’s visuals.  Yamauchi failed to be drawn on the future of the franchise once Gran Turismo 7 has been released. However, he did imply the franchise wouldn’t be ending anytime soon.


GT Sport Tops 9.5 Million Players.
