It has been less than three weeks since the launch of Slightly Mad Studio’s latest Project CARS 3 game but today the new mobile title, which has been rumored to be in the works for sometime now, has finally been confirmed as real, as closed BETA registration is now available for sign ups on iOS and Android devices.

The last the public heard about Project CARS GO was back in February 2020 when Ian Bell, CEO of SMS and Executive Director at Codemasters posted a Tweet, saying how excited he was to share more information about this new mobile game. Interestingly the marketing material for this new title follows the same values that where placed around Project CARS 3, with obviously more casual gameplay, which somehow is also is a simulation or in their words “Realism but simplified” here is a short blurb from the press release:

Project CARS GO removes the tougher elements of simulation racing and streamlines them for players while maintaining an aspect of realism. The simple “One Touch” racing mechanic offers a fun and easy way to experience high-octane racing wherever, whenever. With real-life tracks, easy-to-use customization vehicle options, and officially licensed race cars, Project CARS GO is a fun and casual racing experience that connects casual fans with varying degrees of interest in motorsports.

If you want to get in on the closed beta visit

Registrations are open to residents of the US, UK, Australia and Canada with signups closing on October 13th 2020

The test will run from October 16th to October 27th, as it is a closed BETA, you are required to sign an NDA which prohibits you from sharing anything about the title. Considering the fallout they received after Project CARS 3 this seems like a drastic step to try keep critics quiet but maybe they will pull off something half decent here and considering the promise of licensed cars and tracks. This is definitely something to watch.
