That Project CARS Series no longer exists as Electronic Arts will no longer support the development of the franchise.
Developed by Slightly Mad Studios since 2015, EA announced today that it will stop “further development and investment” in the series, GI.biz revealed.
The announcement was made internally, and it says employees working on Project CARS will be moved to other roles at EA where possible.
Slightly Mad Studios was acquired by Codemasters in 2019 (itself acquired by EA in 2021) and has released three mainline games in the series, with the last, Project CARS Go, releasing for mobile in 2021.
According to GI.biz, part of the reason EA decided to stop supporting the franchise was that it was unlikely to fit into the company’s current racing portfolio.
“Today we announced an update to our racing portfolio internally,” an EA spokesperson told the site. “After evaluating the next Project CARS title and its longer-term growth potential, we have made the decision to discontinue further development and investment for the franchise.
“Decisions like these are very difficult, but they allow us to focus our attention on areas where we believe we have the greatest opportunity to create experiences that fans will love.”
“We are working with everyone impacted by this decision to place them in appropriate roles across our EA Sports and Racing portfolio, as well as other parts of EA, wherever we can.”
