The mobile resurgance
This move by Ferrari is yet another push to legitimise the mobile racing game medium, as we have seen recently with the likes of Project CARS and Assetto Corsa creating mobile versions.
We have seen it being included in events such as the McLaren Shadow Project Final. The competition was open to players of top level simulations such as iRacing, rFactor 2, Assetto Corsa Competizione, more casual console games like Project CARS 2 and Forza Motorsport 7, and even the mobile app Ferrari are using, Real Racing 3.
Mobile gamers entering the McLaren Shadow Project initiative can qualify for the semi-final stage of the new Esports competition from Thursdayhttps://t.co/IFMluYtaQ0— Autosport (@autosport) August 23, 2018
