The new iGP Manager will arrive on igpmanager.com on August 26th, for free. Following this launch, in Q4 2016 it will be released as an app on Android and iOS. This makes it the world’s first cross-device motorsport manager game with multiplayer real-time strategy.

We’ve taken every bit of feedback on board from you, our enthusiastic managers, both before and during the beta test to ensure the right balance between a game which is approachable and shareable with your friends and yet which has a greater degree of challenge and variety than ever before.

After closing the beta recently, we have continued to develop iGP Manager, and there will be new previously unseen features included when the web app launches on August 26th. These include:

  • New home page featuring your leagues news feed and live next race countdown
  • New Britain circuit layout
  • All circuit maps rebuilt in double the current resolution for crisp new visuals and rich levels of detail, with visual rubber on the track and more
  • A revised live race GUI which displays more vital information on one screen and allows adjusting of strategy while keeping the race in view
  • Live telemetry and data on your cars and their fuel and tyre usage during the live race
  • In-race strategy which can review and modify all past and future stints during the race, not only the upcoming stint

We look forward to bringing all of these new and revised features with the launch, as well as surprises we have planned for later in the year after the web app launch. By the way, you can get a sneak peak at some of these features in the trailer!

Hi Duarte,

From what I understand

The races will all be postponed to the next day you were due to race. So if its a daily league, your race should be on the 27th. If your race say, mon/wed/fri, then your next race is Monday.

From what I can tell dont waste your time doing any setups/test runs and they will not apply to new game.

I would assume the website will be here, but the logon page will be a holding page or something, [I]Be patient while we work[/I] type stuff.

Duarte Correia So I read from your FB page that a 24h shutdown ("hopefully less") is planned for tomorrow...what happens to the races which would take place tomorrow then? They get postponed until the website is finally up? I guess it's not worth doing setups or getting up earlier tomorrow morning (for those of us who race early on the day) if the website will be off anyway?

Duarte Correia With the launch upon us I suspect this is a question that runs through the mind of some of us - is there an exact hour planned for the new version to be ready? Shall I take it literally and assume that "the 26th" means any race starting past midnight that day or should we expect the new version to be lauched at a certain hour during the day?

Jack Basford I wouldn't say soon, but we will look at building new circuits in 2017. The priorities up the end of 2016 are releasing all platforms and getting all of the key features implemented to the best degree.

Jack Basford @Duarte - If you mean the restocking of engines, there will be no change to when they are restocked. It operates in the same way and the data will be transferred across. :)

Duarte Correia Will the current engine supply be reset upon the release of the new iGP on the 26th or will there be no change to that?
