NASCAR Heat 5 Update

During the most recent earnings call, new Motorsport Games CEO Stephen Hood said that the latest NASCAR Heat 5 update to bring the game “closer to season currency” was set to be released in the “coming days”.

In a statement to Insider Gaming, Motorsport Games says that the update is coming, and is currently in certification testing.

“Happy to confirm that it does exist,” a Motorsport Games spokesperson said, “[It] is currently in certification with first parties whom we don’t have major control over timing with.

“Expect us to communicate about it in the coming week or two with the first-party proviso previously mentioned.”

Launched in July 2020, NASCAR Heat 5 has continued to be the NASCAR game of choice for fans due to the game features private online lobbies for racing among other features missing from NASCAR 21: Ignition.
