An anonymos source has informed Stock Car Spin that an announcement about a new NASCAR video game is expected to be made within the coming days.
The source says that the game is being developed by Eutechnyx, and is being published by Activision, the publisher of the famous Rainbow Six and Guitar Hero series.
The game, entitled NASCAR 2011: The Game, will be released for the Nintendo Wii, Microsoft Xbox 360, and Sony Playstation 3.
This is what Dave Thompson of Eutechnyx had to say on his Twitter page:
“We almost have everything ready to roll out so expect to see plenty before the end of this month. Trust me, it’s worth the wait.”
Thompson also hinted that online races may include more than 16 players, stating “16 (cars) just seems like so last year.”
No word just yet for sure on when exactly The Game will be released, but rumors have suggested that it will be early February 2011, just before the season-opening Daytona 500.
