i mean, not too many racing games get a year+ of support like this. and before dlc, once the game came out that was the end.

you can't just keep creating content for the same game forever because most games' user base doesn't stay big enough to make it worth it (ie, $$$) for the devs. most people move on to other games after a few weeks/months

It could probably work pretty well. DLC is relatively cheap to do but easy to sell. It could be the future. Sure, the user base is not the biggest now but you can sell the whole game again for next gen... with all DLCs.

Do you really think they will create/use an other engine than current EGO ??

Yes, it'd be a complete overhaul of the current EGO engine. They did just buy a pretty massive racing sim studio... No reason not to think they'd retool it since they've publicly said they couldn't do the full Monte route due to the engine.

Free for season owners.. 😅

To be honest, I'll buy all necessary seasons to have this. It's basically what I always wanted and a Subaru Legacy I didn't know I needed so bad up until NOW.

SCOTLAND THO 😍

Im looking forward to the scenarios also. Im hoping for one where you have to beat his average speed set in the 2001 Focus during the 2001 Wales rally GB St Gwynno stage. The incar footage is probably the best ever and as a spectator in the flesh it was the best driving Ive ever seen.

DLC is not cheap to do. a single car takes easily a month to model, create liveries, adjust the performance etc. a location takes much, much longer than that and this is why all the DLC rally locations are updates on old ones and not brand new.

Sounds cheap to me. You can sell it to 100k ppl. And then sell it again with next-gen or next game. Forza uses some cars for 15 years 😄 (some updated more, some less).

Locations are expensive and that's the reason why we didn't have any new... until now!

For racing games DLC model could work pretty well. You have money for next development constantly and after few years you can create new release.
