Those are really, really sad news.
I've just read the latest info on RD and hope the fella recovers (health comes first).
I guess the complete silence from the developer, for what has been a year now (following the only bit of initial news we had), was not making for a good prognostic of the state of the game.
Very sad for me because GTL2 was the only racing game I envisioned bringing me back to sim-racing in that passionate way, that "hands at work" motivation sense which I used to get all those years ago.
I still think that GTL2 development could still happen with the right people, more so with the ammount of talented modders that do know about these cars and are probably willing to help and participate. But yeah, it is very sad.
Not too interested in GTR3, tbh.
The racecars now are a lot more generic (IMO) and utterly "electronic-ized" (even more), although at least GTR3 would be a propper racing game made around a real racing series, and not yet another mish-mash of generic cars&tracks content.
I honestly doubt that, today, GTR3 can top the release of GTR and its improved sequel GTR2, looking back in their respective days. For that time period, GTR was a well born racing game, with great foundations. The right racesim at the right time.
GTR was really desired back then (more so following the colossal release of SBDT's GTR2002 mod) and I don't think that's the case today, although the name certainly has weight (from its past success). It brings expectation because of that and, I believe, this newer game title is mostly riding on that.
Hopefully I'm wrong and it will be really good.
