I agree with you @UnstopaPaul , calling it Project CARS is the big fail though. BMW won't make a 120hp Mini-like car and call it an M3, would they? They have just ruined the franchise with that decision.

When you start thinking things couldn't get worse and then...:facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

Kind of sad to see that this is this guys major amount of his free time spent on the current state of SMS' games.
Feel sorry for him, but hey, it brings in the views, so he must continue.

No, but if I called something "Go" or "Lite" , I'd know to expect a lightweight version of a title I (might) love by developers I (might) trust to deliver fun experiences. In the analogy you have used, "M3" is more like "Pro/Ultimate/Go" than it is "3 series". I don't think heusinkveld ruined their flagship "Ultimate" line, by having a "Sprint" line.



My expectation of Project Cars on PC is not changed by that mobile title with "GO" in the title, (it is changed by their direction in PC3, which is a far more legitimate breaking of the branding). In fact, I think its a pretty honest badging and I have a pretty good idea of what to expect from that experience, and its probably going to be a pretty engaging car game by mobile standards.

Again, general industry and fan agreement was that the Diablo immortal problem was NOT the idea that Diablo might have a lightweight mobile experience, it was that it seemed to be coming at the expense of the PC version and as a "this is what you get guys" message (worst marketing decision of all time).

Let's assume for a moment that PC3 had been everything that you'd ever hoped for in a sim on PC. I don't believe that there would be any problem's being raisedd with the "brand" of a mobile game then as long as there wasn't a perceived threat to the development of PC4.

Not sure what to think of this if it goes trough...
I mean, take2 subsidiaries have made some of my favourite games ever. Borderlands 2 and GTA4 and 5 were a blast! And I've heard some good stories about the Civilisation series. So regarding that it might get all of the untapped potential that Codemasters games are known for.

On the other hand there's the horror stories around the KSP2 development. Which makes me worry about the SMS employees that I know.
