A short time later, in 2017 and 2020, Project Cars 2 and Project Cars 3 were replenished. Overall, the series was able to inspire some players, but those who had hopes for a possible fourth offshoot of the series were unfortunately disappointed. As reported by Gamesindustry, Project Cars is being discontinued.

Such decisions are very difficult, make it possible However, we are allowing our focus to be in areas where we believe we have the best opportunities to create experiences that fans will love.”
