    MSG is not depending only in RF2 and s397. And s397 and RF2 could be sold to anyone. One problem is MSG future and other thing is s397 and RF2 future. I'm not concerned at all.

    Theoretical, if they had the data or get it from a car company or motor sport team.But this should be communicated.
    Mostly I think the physics of mods are estimated or copied values.

    They do state In every release that actual real data Is being used. Or what data they are using, or where It´s coming from.
    I agree that mods are most likely to be using estimated or copied values. Or whatever values S397 shares with them.

    In other words, for the most realistic representation wether It be for a car or track, the paid version Is the one that fits best the simulation engine that It´s been made to use. At least as I understand It.

    With that said, It´s not always the case with 3rd. party content In other simulators (MSFS 2020 etc.).

    In case of radical e.g. they said "So we are proud to collaborate with Radical Sportscars on its launch..." and for the Porsche 911 GT3 cup "As always, we’ve worked hand-in-hand with Porsche Motorsport to pull masses of data from the manufacturer into the simulation...."

    Hasn't rF2 survived bankruptcy from previous owners before? After all it was an ISI title. If MSGM goes bankrupt I predict rF2 will be fine but will probably not have future licensed paid DLC anymore or nearly as often. Hopefully a good sized publisher can pick the game up and just continue where it left off.

    ISI didn't go bankrupt, they just sold rF2 to Studio 397. I think ISI makes most of its revenue from commercial licensing and rF2 probably wasn't worth continuing for them.

    Uhm, what makes you think ISI titles are bankruptcy prone? Gjon Camaj's policy was to never let ISI take on debt, so how could rF2 go bankrupt?

    There have only been two sales of rF2. ISI --> Studio 397 (backed by Luminis while ISI retained a financial stake) --> Motorsport Games Management (while retaining Studio 397 as an entity; unknown if ISI or Luminis retain any financial stake)

    After what was the Virtual Le Mans today, I don't have much hope for their future.
