KW Studios have announced a new plan to release content on a consistent basis roughly every six weeks for the remainder of 2023. Announced so far in 2023 Q1.5 is the BMW M4 GT3, followed up by three new Porsche cars for Q2 and Circuit De Pau Ville and a Touring Car pack for Q3.

KW plan for each six-week pack to contain multiple cars – and sometimes tracks – curated around a particular theme, while intermediary content will be smaller, very affordable releases, typically of individual cars or the latest new season livery updates for key championships.

Full text of their forum post:

We’re very pleased to say that we are formalising our content release strategy for 2023 onwards, so you’ll know exactly what to expect from Raceroom through the year. From now on, you can expect regular pack releases every three months, around the end of each quarter, neatly interspersed with tailored drops of single cars, tracks or series livery updates. This means you can expect to see new content about every six weeks. As ever, each new release will tie in with exciting online esports competitions and events.

Each pack will contain multiple cars – and sometimes tracks – curated around a particular theme. We’ll always try to introduce new cars that either strengthen existing classes or provide a new class that we think will bring something new and exciting to Raceroom. This year’s three remaining pack releases will be at the beginning of July, the beginning of October and then our usual pre-Christmas special release.

The intermediary content will be smaller, very affordable releases, typically of individual cars or the latest new season livery updates for key championships.

Following on from our On The Edge pack release at the beginning of April, in around five weeks you’ll be able to get your hands on the first of the new intermediate releases. We’re extremely happy to announce that it will be the new BMW M4 GT3, which will ship with a whole range of liveries from the international series it runs in.

This will be followed in July by the second of this year’s quarterly packs, which will be geared around some officially-licensed Porsche content. This pack will star their new GT3 racer, the 992-model 911 GT3-R, which when added to the M4 is another boost to our already strong GT3 class. The GT3 will be accompanied by the latest generation 911 GT3 Cup (represented by official liveries from the 2023 Carrera Cup Germany Championship) and a real classic in the shape of the 944 Turbo Cup from the mid 1980s – the latter rocking some particularly old school liveries!

The next main quarterly pack release, due in October, will see the release of a touring car themed pack based around the release of an iconic street track: Circuit De Pau Ville in the south of France. Pau is an absolute classic and a star of our old Race touring car game series: we’ve wanted to bring this into Raceroom for a long time – and we thinks it’s going to be worth the wait! We’re also still committed to touring cars, and there will be some exciting news to reveal on that front over the coming months.

We’ll bring you more details on the remaining intermediate releases in the very near future: we’ve got a lot of fantastic content in the pipeline. Of course, we also keep a close eye on the community, and will always try and steer content themes around what we see people are asking for. We’ll also be delivering regular physics and general development updates over the coming months. Watch this space for more details!
