I put a positive spin on that by interpreting it to be because they REALLY didn't want to mention iRacing...

Ranking system for both skill and safety similar to iRacing (he mentions the latest GranTurismo's one). They hired the guy behind Minorating for this

Was I correct to take that translation / transcribing as meaning that iRacing was not mentioned?

I don't have a good feeling about ACC.  I don't know why, just gut instinct.
I fear something that is targeted more at consoles and will not have the depth of physics that AC has.  The fact they have chosen the Unreal engine indicates to me that graphics are their primary concern.

I think you guys are being too pessimistic. They're bringing the physics component from AC which is directly transferrable, and they've also hired more programmers and physics guys with mechanical engineering backgrounds. UE4 just means shiny new graphics on top of it all. There is no mention of consoles. It will be available on Steam/PC.

Let's hope so Wally.  I don't know why they didn't just call it AC2 though.

But why should they? Why wasn't AC netKar Pro 2?

Heres a quote from licensing guy Marco: "The Blancpain GT Series license is just the tip of the iceberg."
To me, this says we will see ACC Blancpain, ACC BTCC, ACC WEC, ACC F1 and maybe even ACC Supercars.

And it buys them time to convert all the existing cars and tracks. It would be impossible to develop AC2 and all AC1 content in one go. ACC allows them to start from scratch. The physics is mostly maths and can be "salvaged" but is being enhanced eg 64bit.

The early release ACC will be great. A lot of fun to be part of testing all the new features!! I've signed up on Steam already :)

But will it be modable, or do we say goodbye to most of the historic content we now have , and have to wait another 5 years for the modders to catch up again :'(

It will be moddable but not immediately. Kunos will want to avoid the problems they had with the current modding interfaces eg  supporting Python and then realising it had performance implications. They have two of the best modders on staff and I reckon they will be working on a next gen modding interface for a future release.

And also, don't forget how plans change. The initial plan for AC was for it to have only a few cars, and look at what the car list became.

I do not think it will be moddable or include different series

"Assetto Corsa Competizione is the new official Blancpain GT Series video game."

That suggests to me that it will only include the official Blancpain GT cars and official tracks.
Do you see the F1 series of games include other series? No. Because then it wouldn't be the "offical game" would it?

I reckon their plan to get more money is have a different game for each series they have a licence for and personally if that's the case I wont bother to get it

http://www.racedepartment.com/threads/gtr-3-by-simbin-coming-in-2018.131230/

Might be 2 similar games coming out using Unreal 4 game engine
