Normalerweise sollte am morgigen Mittwoch der sechste Release der Early-Access-Phase von ACC stattfinden. Als Content war die Rennstrecke in Monza sowie der Honda Acura NSX GT3 angekündigt, nun wird die Veröffentlichung um eine Woche verschoben. Außerdem wird der Honda erst zum Release von Assetto Corsa Competizione Einzug erhalten und im Early Access durch den 2015er und 2018er Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 ersetzt, da der NSX noch etwas mehr Entwicklungsarbeit benötigt.

Als Gründe zur Verschiebung nannte Kunos Simulazoni, dass einige umfangreicher Neuprogrammierungen des Gameplay, das Session-Handling und beispielsweise die Strafen mehr Entwicklungszeit benötigen als vorher angenommen.

Dear Early Access users of Assetto Corsa Competizione,

As you might know if you follow our activities on the official support forum, after releasing the first set of multiplayer features we decided to re-write some of the gameplay logic elements related to session handling, race timing and penalties, which manage both single and multiplayer game modes. The decision came in order to make improvements to the overall game structure, and ensure that multiplayer features are as efficient as possible to suit our goals, since they are a highly important component of Assetto Corsa Competizione.

Refactoring is never an easy task, but the good news is that the surgery has been successful. The code is recovering well, but we need a bit of time to properly test all aspects of the title to make sure all functionalities and updates that will arrive in the 0.6 release work as we – and you – expect them to.

Therefore, we now plan to release v 0.6 next week.

The new build will include the Monza circuit and both model years of the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 cars, 2015 and 2018, which – for the time being – will replace the 2018-spec Honda NSX GT3, previously expected to be released in February, and now scheduled to be included in the 1.0 version of Assetto Corsa Competizione. The reason for this change is that we simply require more time to finalise the NSX package to provide you the best possible virtual counterpart of this amazing racing car.

To most early adopters, these slight changes should not come as a big surprise, since they are part of an early access programme: nevertheless, we would like to thank you for your patience and the amazing support we have received from you, which is the key reason why we continue to work hard to deliver a simulation game that can meet your expectations. As soon as we have more info to share and a confirmed launch date, we will let you know

Sincerely,
The Kunos Simulazioni Team
