rFactor 2 Update Fixes & The Future

rFactor 2 Update Fixes & The Future

Those over at rFactor 2 release some update information and whats in store for the future. Lets see whats going on.

rfactor 2 is one of those sim racing titles where you love it, or totally dislike it. Whilst it has so much to offer in terms of car physics, handling models etc, it never seems to get the attention of other titles such as iRacing, Assetto Corsa and more. So what is going on, whats in store for the future, and is the game dying….slowly?

Official

Firstly, we want to address the elephant in the room: yes, we’re aware that the anticipation for new DLC content is high, and we thank you for your patience. While we’ve been channelling our energy into some vital projects, including Le Mans Ultimate, we haven’t forgotten the essence of rFactor 2 that all of you love. We’re returning to our roots by refining our legacy content. These updates, though minor, are part of our commitment to ensuring the game continues to offer a solid and enjoyable experience.
