The development roadmap for the coming months in NASCAR 21: Ignition has been revealed.

Motorsport Games has unveiled their development plans over the coming months for NASCAR 21: Ignition. There was very little detail given in the roadmap image, and owners of the game can hope that many of the long-standing issues with N21 will be addressed simultaneously with the feature and DLC releases.

This month will give players the chance to race in stages, a feature of the real Cup series notably absent in the launch version of the title. Private Parties will also be added soon, giving groups of six players or more the chance to hold a private race. DLC #3 is also scheduled for release this month, though no detail was given.

Next month, perhaps the most intriguing upcoming feature will be released, as players will have the chance to test drive the next generation NASCAR Cup cars. This will be released alongside a "shaky cam" video mode that can be turned on or off.

The last month in this roadmap is April, which should see the Gen 9 (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S) console updates for the game.

All kidding aside, I literally forgot this game was a thing. Given how interested I was to see how it would turn out, that's probably not a great sign.
Wonder where the "Make the game playable" was hidden.
That will be in a future, yet to be determined, but soon update. And did I read they have a DLC, whoa!
On a related note, Motorsport Games was celebrating the one-year anniversary of the IPO by ringing the closing bell on the NASDAQ with a $4.04 closing price, far from a one year high of $37.35. Hopefully, for MSGM and rFactor2, they are putting forward a better effort on a future release otherwise that next game may be their last.
Roadmap for 2022:
- Fix all the bugs (impossible)
- Bring back the reputation (impossible)
Why (about first)?
Second is really hard (

On Steamdb I see that team work hard -


I think the team overestimated their strength, deciding that if they can do something in UE, then the racing game is a piece of cake.

Another delusional moment in this train wreck.

The game still is barely playable, the number of active players don't even can make a full Nascar field (lol) not even a Truck series field, the company stock price is in a roller coaster that only goes down, but they still acting like everything is right, launching this empty roadmap and skinpacks DLC's that makes me wonder WHO they belive will buy or how this could be profitable.

At least the "ultimate team" ideia apparentally died.
