In recent years, iRacing has made a significant investment in the product and its teams. The company has hired talented and experienced new developers, artists, programmers, production staff, and managers, with a focus on increasing the size of its team.
Among these new hires are individuals with experience working on multiple racing titles, including Project Cars, and other racing disciplines, ranging from rally to oval.
One of the main areas of focus has been the driving and racing experience in the simulation. The company has received feedback and some frustration in regards to dirt and oval racing and is working to address these issues.
A full review and refresh of dirt oval racing is underway, with a dedicated team working on the dynamic track surface, tires, physics, dirt, water, and more.
The engineers are making adjustments to the tires and the track surface, and providing more car tuning tools to the vehicle dynamics engineers, production people, and testers.
The outcome is a more realistic and enjoyable driving experience, with an outside chance for a March release, and a more realistic target of June.
The same process is being applied to pavement oval racing, with the goal of releasing improvements this year. The company is also working on a massive project to add rain and a dynamic weather system to iRacing, with a plan to release it this year. Additionally, the tires are being constantly worked on to improve all forms of racing.
The tire model used in iRacing is considered the most sophisticated and in-depth in
any racing simulation and the company is constantly improving it. The iRacing development team is also working on adding new content and features, including new tracks, cars, and championships.
iRacing is constantly striving to improve the overall driving and racing experience for its players, and these efforts are a testament to the company’s commitment to delivering the most realistic and immersive racing simulation on the market.
With new hires and improvements to driving and racing experience, iRacing is poised for continued growth and success in the years to come.
