Looking ahead to 2024, we can anticipate an exciting year for sim racing releases.

Assetto Corsa 2 – 2024 Release
In 2024, Kunos plans to shake things up with the release of Assetto Corsa 2. The sim racing community has long awaited this sequel, but an exact release date remains unknown.
Speculations point to a spring 2024 launch, but we can’t be certain until an official announcement is made.
When Assetto Corsa 2 finally arrives, it must bring an impressive set of features to surpass its predecessor.
The original game, with its decade-long existence, has gained wet weather racing, a full day-night cycle, stunning graphics, and extensive content through third-party support. If the new game fails to surpass this level, its development may be questionable.
Fans of the original Assetto Corsa have been longing for a new sandbox simulator since the release of Assetto Corsa Competizione. While Competizione caters to GT3 and GT4 racing enthusiasts, it does little to satisfy casual racers. That void is still filled by the original Assetto Corsa.
The anticipation for Assetto Corsa 2 has been building, and financial reports have hinted at a 2024 release. However, the true launch date remains a mystery.
Only time will tell when we can experience the next chapter in the Assetto Corsa series.
EA Sports F1 24 – 2024 Release
EA Sports and Codemasters have been consistently releasing a new edition of the F1 game every year for more than a decade. It’s safe to say that they won’t miss out on releasing the 2024 iteration.
Since 2010, sim racers have always had a new Formula One title each year.
The latest release, F1 23, introduced significant physics improvements, addressing the concerns of simulation fans.
For those who prefer a more gamified experience, the return of Netflix-esque drama, Braking Point, was a welcome addition.
As for the 2024 edition, EA Sports has yet to reveal any details about the game. We can expect the announcement to come in the spring of next year, with the release scheduled around the beginning of summer, just like previous years.
GTRevival – 2024 Release
Before the end of this year, the highly anticipated GTRevival video game, as highlighted by Champion Joe, will be released.
Following the successful model of the original Project Cars, this upcoming title will undergo an early-access phase called World of Mass Development.
This innovative approach, pioneered by Straight4 Studios CEO Ian Bell, allows the developer to generate funds while receiving valuable feedback and suggestions for improvement.
According to the developer, the early access version of the game will be made available to the studio’s most enthusiastic customers prior to Christmas.
However, as Joe points out, the final version of the racing game is scheduled for release in 2024, as confirmed by Bell in his recent interview with us.
Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown – 2024 Release
Next year, gamers can look forward to the highly anticipated release of Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown.
The development team is dedicated to delivering a polished product, which is why the original release date has been pushed back.
This exciting racing game offers an immersive experience with a one-to-one scale map of the Hong Kong island region and a captivating faction-based storyline.
Players will have the opportunity to drive exotic supercars in this realistic real-world location. With the return of the popular Test Drive Unlimited franchise, this game has the potential to be one of the standout titles of the year.
The gaming community is eagerly awaiting its arrival.
What about a potential new Forza game?
Maybe a new Forza title could also be in the works for 2024, as Microsoft’s flagship racing franchise has been releasing new additions every two years.
But for now, these are the confirmed titles that racers can look forward to in 2024. As always, we can expect even more surprises and announcements as the year progresses.
So stay tuned and buckle up for another thrilling year of racing games.
