This morning Hasbro Interactive announced that it would be publishing yet another NASCAR game for the PC and PlayStation platforms: NASCAR Heat. Unlike NASCAR Racers, which was announced last week, Heat will be a realistic driving simulator and not an arcade racer. According to Hasbro, Blue Fang Games and Monster Games are codeveloping the PC version of NASCAR Heat, while the PlayStation version is under development by Digital Illusions.
"With the talented people of Monster Games, Blue Fang, and Digital Illusions we've assembled the finest NASCAR development team in the world," said Hasbro Interactive president Tom Dusenberry. "Their experience and proven track record for technological innovation combined with their passion for motor sports will ensure that Hasbro Interactive has the finest NASCAR product on the market."
NASCAR Heat is scheduled for a simultaneous PC and PlayStation release this October.
