We are less than two months into 2020. Time flies, we know that. And now it is time to check out the upcoming titles of the next year. We have noticed you guys about a lot of great games that will be releasing in 2020, but we have not talked anything about the racing games.

There will be a lot of amazing racing games in 2020. For those who love the speed, the racing games of 2020 will certainly satisfy you. The technology of video games now is massively advanced, so the game developers have all the tools they need to bring the best racing vibe to their players. Those game developers all know that it is nearly impossible for you guys to own a sports car and take part in car races all the time, so a great racing video game is perhaps the best alternative option to satisfy your passion.

So let’s take a look at the best racing video games that will be released in 2020.

Circuit Superstars

  • Developer: Original Fire Games
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
  • Co-op: Not available
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Yes

At first, we thought this was an arcade racing game. Circuit Superstars features an extremely colorful perspective for gamers: a top-down viewpoint. This makes the game familiar to veteran gamers, but it still has tons of thrills to offer its players. Original Fire Games – the developer of this game – has not yet announced all the features of its titles, but they have promised to bring a huge number of vehicles into Circuit Superstars for the players to choose.

Normally, we would not believe the words of a game developer that easily. But developers of Original Fire Games have a lot of experience from real motor racing. Their experience in this field is fifteen years of experience, so they know more about racing than any of us.

Circuit Superstars will both be realistic and fun

The only problem with Circuit Superstars is that this game is a bit too ambitious. A racing game should either be for adult gamers with ultra-realistic racing vibes or be for everyone with friendly vibes. Circuit Superstars makes us feel like it is trying to do both, and that is not a good thing to do. Time will answer our question.

TT Isle of Man 2

  • Developer: Kylotonn
  • Publisher: Bigben Interactive
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Co-op: To be announced
  • Competitive Multiplayer: To be announced

TT Isle of Man was released in 2018, and now we are expecting its sequel next year. This game takes motorbike races as its center, and players are offered online and offline mode to play. The online mode of TT Isle of Man can support up to eight players. If the first title sounds that good, why do we need a sequel?

Kylotonn – the developer of TT Isle of Man 2 – wants to have a huge upgrade for the first title, and it can’t do that with some update patches. That is why we will have TT Isle of Man 2 next year. Besides the visual upgrades, Kylotonn also wants to bring a whole new motorbike mechanics to its game. This new mechanics will be a major breakthrough for the whole racing game genre, at least that is what Kylotonn believes.

TT Isle of Man is successful, so the sequel should also be

For now, we can’t say for sure whether TT Isle of Man 2 will be successful or not. But the first game was successful, so TT Isle of Man 2 should also be a big hit.


  • Developer: ECC Games S.A.
  • Publisher: PlayWay
  • Platforms: PC
  • Co-op: Not available
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Not available

All car-racing video games have their own drifting mechanics, but ECC Games S.A. does hope to create a giant breakthrough in the drifting field in the video game industry. This game developer promised that its new drifting mechanics in Drift19 would make other gaming companies reconsider their drifting mechanics.

That was a bold promise, but ECC Games S.A. has been preparing for this title for so long, so we can have some expectations. Drift19 is believed to become a “drift simulator,” and we do hope it will.

Project Cars 3

  • Developer: Slightly Mad Studios
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco
  • Platforms: To be announced
  • Co-op: To be announced
  • Competitive Multiplayer: To be announced

Slightly Mad Studios has been a famous name among the racing game genre for years. Since the launch of Need for Speed: Shift in 2009, this game developer has always been welcomed whenever they bring out a new title. With this third title in the Project Cars franchise, Slightly Mad Studios intends to make the gamers go mad again.

In this game, Slightly Mad Studios wants to bring more fun to its gamers. That means the amount of sandbox-style of the previous title in this game franchise will be reduced, and that is fine. Slightly Mad Studios announced that they had achieved a revolution for this game franchise, so Project Cars 3 would be three times better than Project Cars 2. Reducing the amount of sandbox-style maybe the first step to do that.

Bold statements from game developers are not rare, but Slightly Mad Studios’ words can be trusted.

Gran Turismo 7

  • Developer: Polyphony Digital
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: To be announced
  • Co-op: To be announced
  • Competitive Multiplayer: To be announced

The Gran Turismo franchise has become the reason for many gamers to buy PlayStation consoles. That statement alone can summarize how successful this game franchise is. Polyphony Digital is believed to be working on Gran Turismo Sport – a spin-off series for the Gran Turismo franchise. But that does not mean this game developer has abandoned the big franchise.

At this point, we still can’t be sure whether we will have Gran Turismo 7 or something about Gran Turismo Sport. But that does not matter. The truly matter thing here is that the next Gran Turismo title will highly likely on PS5, as it can totally be a VR game.

This can be one of the first iconic titles for PS5

If it is a VR racing game, then we believe it will be one of the first iconic titles for the PlayStation 5 platform.
