In a thread on the Steam community forum for rFactor 2 a user is reporting recently seeing “Server credit” as an item to purchase in the rFactor 2 steam store. While it has now been removed from the store this does appear to indicate that, like iRacing, rFactor 2 users will soon be able to setup a server – for a fee – using someone else’s hardware. Queries on whether this would replace the free hosting options were quickly pushed aside with a Discord response from a developer that stated “Normal hosting is untouched by this”.

It’s very likely this feature will also be present in Le Mans Ultimate so it remains to be seen (and confirmed) just how this is going to work in rFactor 2. As an employee of ISI when the packaging system was first developed, and someone who actually hated it because of the complexity it added for hosting, I’m really hoping this simplifies the whole process. However, I do wonder whether this will have mod support… Ideally I’d love to see it hook into the rFactor 2 Steam workshop in some way…
