Project Cars 3 will be "more of a spiritual successor to Shift" with "sim goodness"

Ian Bell, the CEO of Slightly Mad Studios, the developer behind the Project Cars series, and EA's Need for Speed: Shift, has taken to the gtplanet forums to discuss Project Cars 3, the next game from Slightly Mad. 

In a recent post, Bell stated that Project Cars 3 would be more 'focused' and 'fun' than its predecessor, which the developer claimed had some 'sub-optimal' design decisions, mostly due to the insane number of options and variation offered by the game. 

Bell went on to state that Project Cars 3 will be 'more of a spiritual successor to Shift', referencing Need for Speed: Shift, which the developer released under EA in 2009. That being said, the studio has no plans to decrease the amount of content available in Project Cars 3 or to take away any of the 'sim goodness' that players expect.   

With Project Cars 3, Slightly Mad plans to offer a more refined gaming experience that focuses on the titles fun factor instead of adding unmanageable levels of in-game content. Project Cars 3 is currently in pre-production, making most aspects of the game subject to change as the game's development moves forward.

While Project Car 2 released with positive reviews and several gaming awards, the studio believes that there is still improvement to be made to the series. From the looks of it, Project Cars 3 will focus on fun factor, which is always a good start for a game.

Dont think it would "fly" these days. We expect so much now. It's still my favourite too, but when I look back at it... Don't think i would enjoy the same as much as I used to.Quote

I went back to it a few months ago, certainly doesn't "feel" as nice in the handling aspects but the open world design & many other aspects still keep up quite well, but I assume such a move would be a licensing nightmare, as racing games usually are, and it's been heavily requested for years.Quote

It was horribly unrealistic in almost every aspect except modding. The Nissan 240 on the drag racing was untouchable in a specific tuning and in no way should have been 5-10 sec ahead of the best non 240sx car.Quote

Yeah it's quite a goofy game generally really though, I mean it's a mostly arcade racer with nitrous boost and all that, and the handling hasn't aged too well, but it was still cool in many ways.Quote
