Project Cars 4 will offer the "most realistic simulation" with the "Madness 2.0" Engine

Ian Bell, the CEO of Slightly Mad Studios, has started talking about Project Cars 4 on Twitter, stating that the game will "be the most realistic simulation ever made" and that the game will utilise the Madness 2.0 engine and Live Track 4 technology. 

Since making these statements, Ian Bell has since deleted his Tweets, but he didn't move quickly enough to prevent GTPlanet from archiving his comments.  

With Project Cars 4, Slightly Mad Studios appears to be moving away from the developer's design decisions from Project Cars 3, which made the game much less complex and removed important mechanics like pit stops from the title.

I don't really understand the franchise at this point. Obviously these comments are a reaction to PC3's reception, but I still kind of view PCars as a sequel to NFS:Shift, in other words an arcade-sim with engaging mechanics. Not necessarily a competitor to iRacing and the like which strive for realism above all else.

But CEO looking at effects where leaves get blown away by cars? That's ridiculously out of touch and I think we've seen that effect a decade ago.Quote

Project Cars, the only racing game whose graphics get worse with each new release.

PC 3 graphics were truly awful in comparison to the first game.Quote
