505 Games and Kunos Simulazioni have confirmed that acclaimed GT racing simulation Assetto Corsa Competizione is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 23. It will be available digitally and at physical retail.
The official game of the Blancpain GT Series, Assetto Corsa Competizione is a spin-off to 2014’s original Assetto Corsa and focuses on authentic GT3 racing. It was originally released out of Steam Early Access on PC in May 2019.

All tracks from the 2018 and 2019 Blancpain GT Series are featured, including laser-scanned versions of Monza, Paul Ricard, Zandvoort, Brands Hatch, Zolder, Silverstone, Misano, Spa, Nürburgring, Hungaroring, and Catalunya. Four tracks from outside Europe were added to the PC version in last month’s “Intercontinental GT Pack”, including Bathurst, Laguna Seca, Kyalami, and Suzuka. The “Intercontinental GT Pack” will be a pre-order bonus for console players but will also be available for separate purchase at some point following the game’s release.
