'Formula Retro Racing: World Tour' Delayed On Consoles Until Easter 2023, To Coincide With PC Launch

Race through iconic locations in this 90s-style arcade racer with crisp visuals, realistic driving physics and split-screen multiplayer.

Formula Retro Racing: World Tour is the follow-up to the popular original title Formula Retro Racing, which launched at the start of lockdown back in 2020.

Players will race across 8 new landmark-filled cities, including Tokyo, Paris and London. Multiple vehicle types are the biggest new addition in World Tour. Master the art of kissing the apex, as players get to grips with World Tour's high-performance, muscle and standard race cars. Each one brings its own benefits and challenges to the track, and its up to players to find what works best for them. 

Formula Retro Racing: World Tour features crisp low-poly HD visuals running at 60fps, 4-player split-screen multiplayer, online leaderboards and classic checkpoint racing. Realistic destruction physics provide a sense of authenticity, alongside snappy car handling that places you at the heart of the action.

Inspired by the likes of Virtua RacingRidge Racer and Sega Rally, this retro-inspired racer mixes the thrill of arcade racing with modern game design elements. Racing purists, and new fans alike, can pick up and play Formula Retro Racing: World Tour due to its focus on simplicity. However, deeper mechanics like slipstreams and varied handling across different car types provide endless hours of replayability in the chase for the very best lap times.

As a result of ongoing discussions with key partners, we have made the strategic decision to move the console launch date of Formula Retro Racing: World Tour to 2023.

We’ve had an amazing opportunity presented to us, and in order to make this game's experience something even more special, console release will now coincide with PC launch, just in time for Easter 2023. All game elements are now complete, and development is in its final polishing phase.

The decision was made to ensure the team at CGA Studio Games and Repixel8 deliver the best possible racing action for fans. CGA and Repixel8 are set to launch a series of technical tests and betas in advance of the game's launch and are inviting players to participate by signing up over at Repixel8’s website.

We would like to thank you for your continued support on this journey. Excitement for the game and demo feedback on Steam inspires us every day and we cannot wait to share more about the future of Formula Retro Racing: World Tour with you!
