rFactor 2 gets a boost as ISI announce a partnership with Luminis

Image Space Incorporated (ISI) of Michigan and the developer of the rFactor 2 simulated racing platform, today announced a strategic partnership with the Dutch software group Luminis to accelerate rFactor 2’s development. The partnership will be brought into a new company: Studio 397.

Online simracing has been my longtime personal passion, so the opportunity to combine it with my business feels like a great privilege. By infusing the platform with some of our own technology we see great opportunities to accelerate development in general and specifically in the areas of competitions and training.”

The new partnership plans to release an ambitious roadmap for rFactor 2’s further development shortly; initial plans include improvements to the user interface, a DX11 based graphics engine including VR support and new propositions for strategic partners by the end of 2016, as well as increasing the frequency of new car and track releases.

Da notare che Luminis ha già collaborato con Reiza Studios per lo sviluppo di Automobilista.

 

Marcel Offermans, lead developer, states: “Automobilista, which is based on the proven rFactor engine licensed by Image Space Incorporated, provides a very realistic car model. The small but very talented and dedicated team atReiza Studios managed to build a simulator that combines a wide variety of cars and tracks with a very advanced and challenging physics engine. With several downloadable content packs (DLC) still on the way, Automobilista is a project we are very proud of. Automobilista is available on Steam now. It runs on any modern PC so all you really need is a wheel and pedals to get started!”.
