Motorsports Games has acquired Studio 397, the team behind the realistic racing simulation rFactor 2. The team has been working with Motorsports Games for the past year on vehicle physics, tire modeling and AI for the upcoming NASCAR video game franchise reboot, schedule to release later this year.
“Studio 397 shares our same passions for virtual racing and creating the best possible driving experiences for our players,” said Stephen Hood, President of Motorsport Games. “We originally chose to work with them on our new NASCAR game franchise to bring top class elements to the titles, as rFactor 2 has the best vehicle physics, AI and tire model available today. Therefore, when the opportunity arose to bring them into the Motorsport Games family, it made perfect sense to all parties.”
