704 Games has announced they will release NASCAR Heat 2 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 12. In addition to confirming a release date, the publisher promised the sequel will build on last year’s game with “enhanced online multiplayer, a deeper career mode, track updates, additional drivers and other features in line with the 2017 NASCAR-sanctioned national series formats.”
“[NASCAR Heat 2] will have a very different look and an enhanced overall experience that reflects the insights of actual NASCAR drivers,” said Paul Brooks, the CEO of 704 Games. “Over the coming months, we’ll announce additional new features that we believe will really excite our fans.”
Like last year, 704 Games will use the results of an upcoming race to determine NASCAR Heat 2’s cover athlete. From now until Friday, May 19, fans can vote for the two drivers they want to see compete for the cover spot at NASCARHeat.com/CoverRace. And then on May 20, the first driver to finish Stage 2 at the Monster Energy All-Star Race will become the game’s cover athlete.
We’ll learn more about NASCAR Heat 2 during this year’s E3 Expo, as 704 Games also announced they’ll have a demo version of the game on display at the industry’s Summer showcase.
