The first title only came out in May, but Slightly Mad Studios has announced the development of Project Cars 2 and is once again looking for crowd funding in order to make it happen.
The sequel will be funded by the studio’s funding portal World of Mass Development, as with the original title.
So far it seems some people are unhappy about this as they would like the developer's full concentration to be focused on the original title, however it is often the case the a development studio will more on to the next game once it has finished what it was working on, and since Slightly Mad Studios are looking for crowdfunding it makes sense that they let people know about it now, especially since games can take years to complete.
Here’s the announced feature list.
