704Games, the only ones allowed to make NASCAR games, announced today that NASCAR Heat 2 will be available in North America on Sept. 12, 2017 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
NASCAR Heat 2 is set to build on the performance of it’s predecessor NASCAR Heat Evolution, and includes advancements from returning developer Monster Games which include enhanced online multiplayer, a longer career mode, track updates, and additional drivers.
The following statements were included in the press release:
“We’re excited to continue our relationship with Monster Games for NASCAR Heat 2,” said Paul Brooks, CEO of 704Games. “This new game will have a very different look and an enhanced overall experience that reflects the insights of actual NASCAR drivers. Over the coming months, we’ll announce additional new features that we believe will really excite our fans.”
“NASCAR Heat 2 improves on the strong racing foundation established in NASCAR Heat Evolution,” said Richard Garcia, President of Monster Games. “We added a slew of new features designed to take NASCAR games back to their roots, while delivering an authentic racing experience for fans.”
704Games is again working with Toyota, an Official NASCAR Partner, for a new cover athlete competition. From now until Friday, May 19, fans can vote here for the two Toyota drivers they want to see go head-to-head in order to be the face of NASCAR Heat 2. The first of these finalists to finish Stage 2 at the Monster Energy All-Star Race on May 20 will become the cover athlete for NASCAR Heat 2.
