NASCAR '14 will be released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in early 2014, new publisher Deep Silver announced today. Activision published the most recent entry in the series, NASCAR The Game: Inside Line, which was released in November 2012
NASCAR '14 is in development at longtime series developer Eutechnyx, which most recently put out the critically panned Ride to Hell: Retribution. NASCAR '14 will be sold for $50 at launch.
Deep Silver COO Geoff Mulligan said (via Examiner) the company is "thrilled" to have acquired the rights to publish NASCAR '14. He also suggested that more titles may be in the works, saying Deep Silver "looks forward to cultivating a long-term relationship with both the fans and the franchise."
The game will feature a new and "comprehensive" career mode where players can build custom cars, acquire sponsors, and invest in R&D to help their NASCAR team win. A new "NASCAR Highlights" mode will also be included that features real-world race scenarios--including weather and track positions--for players to participate in.
Official NASCAR teams and tracks will also be featured in NASCAR '14, including Daytona, Sonoma, and Talladega. League play and online multiplayer is also supported.
No images or video from NASCAR '14 have been released yet.
