New NASCAR Game Underway for PS4, Xbox One, and PC
Series custodian sells licence to newly announced studio, DMi Games.
As of January 1, the North Carolina-based DMi Games had acquired the license to develop and publish games in the series from previous custodian Eutechnyx. The change in ownership was said to be complex due to the complexity of the licence agreements.
DMi Games president Ed Martin explains: "Just to give you some context, a contemporary NASCAR video game has more than 1,000 licensed and approved properties in it. That’s a lot of stakeholders and people to get organized!"
Martin, who has been working on NASCAR games since the early '90s, announced the new deal in an open letter to fans.
"We are already hard at work on several new games including an all-new NASCAR racing sim created by DMi for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC that we expect to release in 2016," he explained.
