After acquiring the NASCAR license from Eutechnyx, publisher Dusenberry Martin Racing (DMR) has announced the return of developer Monster Games to develop NASCAR Heat Evolution for PS4 & XB1. The Northfield, Minnesota-based studio previously developed NASCAR Heat and NASCAR Dirt to Daytona in the early 2000s.

While no game media happened to be released with the news, it was disclosed that the game will include all 23 licensed NASCAR tracks, a new AI and Speed Rating system, Career and Chase modes, as well as the return of Challenges.

Carl Edwards will grace the cover of the game when it releases on September 13, 2016. Continue on to read the first game details straight from DMR.

NASCAR Heat Evolution will race its way to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on September 13, 2016.

Sweet! Hopefully this lives up to the hype. I've been waiting years for a truly good, solid NASCAR game.

I don't care about racing games and certainly don't have any interest in NASCAR. However if I did, the "Everyone wants to win" paragraph would concern me very much.

That sounds like rubber band AI. Definitely not something that belongs in sports games.
