SPEEDWAY, Ind. — The NTT IndyCar Series is getting into the video game industry.
The series has announced a new partnership with Motorsport Games to create a new video game, which is expected to be released in 2023 and will be available on Xbox, Play Station, and PC.
“Our partnership with Motorsport Games will bring the fierce competition of the NTT IndyCar Series to a global gaming audience hungry for quality motorsports content,” said Penske Entertainment president Mark Miles. “Like the talent and depth of our field, IndyCar’s universe continues to expand and grow rapidly.”
“I am super excited our fans will be able to bring the NTT IndyCar Series into their homes with this new video game franchise,” Arrow McLaren SP driver Pato O’Ward said. “This is such a great opportunity for fans to connect to our series even more, from watching us on the weekends to playing as us on their favorite tracks whenever they want.”
The new video game, which still has yet to be given an official title, will be competing with other top racing video games from other series’ such as NASCAR, IMSA, and Formula One.
Motorsport Games is also the gaming developer for NASCAR, the 24 Hour of Le Mans, and British Touring Car Championship.
“Motorsport Games and IndyCar are thrilled to provide fans with a long-overdue dedicated gaming experience,” said Dmitry Kozko, CEO of Motorsport Games. “After decades of world-class racing, we cannot think of a more deserving league for a video game franchise.”
Virtual racing has been growing in popularity over the last two years with the ascension of iRacing’s platform of online racing, which was spurred greatly by the coronavirus pandemic.
