The British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) was once the focus of a niche, but still extremely popular game published by Codemasters, and after a long absence fans will get something new in 2022.
Motorsport Games, publisher of the NASCAR Heat series, has signed a multi-year deal with the BTCC to produce an official game and associated esports series, as announced by the organisers.
Rumours had swirled in recent months when one of the current drivers said that something was being worked on. The new game will be hotly anticipated by fans, with the old TOCA Touring Cars games still revered to this day.
TOCA Touring Cars was one of my favorite games as a child and as a long-time fan of the series this is incredibly exciting. The NASCAR Heat games are pretty good and the associated esports series is well produced and highly competitive, so it bodes well for this new game in a couple of years time.
