There are racing games and then there are racing games, and Project CARS is firmly in the latter category. Now, Slightly Mad Studios has made a surprising announcement: Project CARS 3 is on the way, and it's going to be in your hands a heck of a lot sooner than you might think.

How about we kick things into high gear with the Project CARS 3 Reveal Trailer?

Project CARS has always been about great graphics and great performance, and Slightly Mad Studios is aiming for exactly that with the third game in the franchise.

"We’re obviously targeting 60 frames on the platforms that we’re releasing Project Cars 3 on," said the game's Marketing & Esports Manager Joe Barron in an interview with GamesRadar. "We’re going to be able to keep updating our levels of detail, and we think that that’s going to come closer all the time, which is really cool. But that target is not just one that we’re chasing, but now it’s one that those parties are chasing as well, and they’re bringing it closer to the targets of developers, which will be really helpful."

In further reporting, GamesRadar details just exactly what can expect from Project CARS 3. Headling this sequel is a brand-new career mode that will have something for all kinds of players. It will take you on a tour of all 10 upgradable car classes while only focusing on some of the cars and tracks available to play.

Also new to the franchise is car customization, a series first. You'll be able to pick from preset liveries for your vehicle (whatever it may be) or create your own and use it in multiplayer matches. Yes, that means we'll likely see an uptick in phalluses blazing by at 200 miles per hour.

The last major addition is Rivals mode, an asynchronous multiplayer gameplay mode. This will be taking the place of Project CARS 2's community events and will feature daily, weekly, and monthly challenges curated by Slightly Mad Studios. The best of the best will have the honor of ranking high on leaderboards and scoring some Rivals coins to boot.

When is the Project CARS 3 Release Date?

Those of you on the hunt for a new hardcore racing game are probably going to love Project CARS 3. When is the Project CARS 3 release date?

Unfortunately, Slightly Mad Studios didn't go into specifics in the reveal trailer, the tweet announcing the game, or any other media as far as we can see. All we know for now is that it's going to be launching for PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime in the Summer of 2020. We're pretty sure it won't be releasing on the Mad Box.
