The first look appears to be in-engine, or better yet, in-game. It was shared with the caption “Hello, world. Unedited in-game screenshot, for the win.”
The upcoming simulation driving game is being created by the new startup studio Straight4Studios, founded by former Slightly Mad Studios chief Bell.
It follows the unveiling of a new logo concept yesterday (27th July) and the news that former Slightly Mad employee Tim Mann has joined the development team – following a prior 14-year stint working with Bell and the Madness Engine technology used to power the Project CARS, Shift and Automobilista 2 titles.
We believe that this is the Audi R8 LMS GT3, although perhaps not the latest Evo II specification. The detail on show here is impressive, with a clear carbon weave and the Interlagos grandstands in the distance.
We’re not aware of many racing drivers who place suit sleeves over their gloves, but hey, development is still very much in embryonic stages, so let’s see how this progresses.
In April it was announced that the title has secured a publishing deal with PLAION, part of the Embracer Group, while in May it was revealed the development team struck a ‘strategic partnership’ with the Brazilian Reiza Studios team.
Name change update
It has been confirmed to Traxion.GG by a representative of Straight4 Studios that the new logo for the game highlights a change in name from GTR Revival to GTRevival.
