Brrrrmmmmmmmm: GTR3 Is Now A Thing

By John Walker on December 8th, 2011.

Gee, thanks. Way to make your game seem annoying from the start.

From this astonishingly boring website, it seems there is to be a GTR3. Which is a dull way of announcing good news. More details are hard to come by at this point, as SimBin – currently the only name attached – are maintaining “radio silence” on their forum. So we have just this obscure and tiresome site that seems to be loading something for two minutes, and then doesn’t. And nothing more. The developer of the first two GTRs, Blimey! Games, no longer exists. And the company that replaced it, Slightly Mad Studios, is working on Project CARS for 2013, after offering Shift 2 this year. So will this be developed internally at SimBin, without Ian Bell? We’ve no idea, because they’re being so peculiarly opaque.

It’s being developed by SimBin, who did the GTR games, and it’s going to be released for free on May 26th. That sounds a lot more interesting indeed. The official website is here. Trailer below.
