As first discussed last month, the assets, IP and business of KartKraft have been acquired by Motorsport Games to form a new subsidiary, Motorsport Games Australia.
The PC karting simulator KartKraft is in Early Access at present and was first released back in November 2018. The game is still receiving regular updates, with new VR menus and telemetry earlier this month and a physics update in February.
Upon its full release, you will be able to build your own kart from the chassis up alongside 20 officially licensed kart manufacturers. There will be 10 real-world tracks that have been laser-scanned.
“The acquisition of KartKraft represents yet another step in our growth as a leading developer and publisher of racing games,” said Dmitry Kozko, CEO of Motorsport Games. This follows on from the news that the company also aims to acquire Studio 397, the development team behind rFactor 2 and use its knowledge across future NASCAR, BTCC and 24 Hours of Le Mans games.
