Racing games - GTR, Race07, Rfactor, etc

Is it tacky to quote yourself? Probably.

Maybe they saw it as a niche where they could compete. How are they going to beat Assetto Corsa, rFactor 2, iRacing, etc.? Then again, how are they going to beat Forza? Jimmy pointed out that it feels like a sequel to Shift 2. But without that branding, it’s probably hopeless.

What I’m curious about is the software development mechanics of how they took a step backwards. You’d naively think they could start with the PC2 engine and physics and then add a simplistic racing model. Instead they took everything out and made it dumbed down.
