Simbin have today announced several changes to their ownership, management structure, and have announced their intention to release a F2P (Free to Play) title in the near future.
It is not yet known what this means for the development of GTR 3. We'll bring you further details when we get them.
March 30 – 2012 – SimBin Studios has evolved significantly over the last year. Strong investments have led to the employment of new and experienced developers from all over the world, a new state of the art office as well as new projects currently in the making.
In the line of these changes, Henrik Roos, one of three founders of SimBin and the CEO of the company, has decided to step down from his position. Henrik is turning the leadership of SimBin Studios AB into the capable hands of Klaus Wohlfarth, the owner of KW Automotive, and the main investor and shareholder of SimBin Studios. Henrik Roos will continue to support the company as a business consultant.
”It feels strange and sad to step down from my role as CEO for SimBin after 10 years of ”marriage” with the company. It is with joy in my heart that I turn the company into the trustworthy hands of Klaus Wohlfarth and his management team. I will for sure follow and support SimBin in its future endeavors, but my family needs me and I also have new and exciting opportunities to explore” says Henrik Roos.
Today, SimBin, RaceRoom and KW Automotive provide a wide product line of software and hardware products within the racing games industry. All three companies are 100% dedicated to motorsports and have a true passion for all things motorized, living up to the statement: “We Are Racing”.
“It is our intention to provide people with the best opportunities to become virtual racers. By controlling the complete production chain in all areas, we are able to offer complete solutions that include software, hardware as well as the overall concepts. The combination of all these values in one, offered by RaceRoom, is a unique concept in the world” says Klaus Wohlfarth.
Additionally, SimBin is happy to inform that the company is working on a Free2Play game platform. Further details will be revealed later this year.
