Porsche’s 17-year exclusive deal with EA is running out soon

Wow

Outside of some loopholes, most non-EA published car games have had a hell of a time courting Porsche. That’s mostly because they have an exclusivity deal together, which has been in place since 2000, until….now.

According to SpeedManiacs, Porsche brand manager Sebastian Hornung has confirmed that the deal is done, and that we should be seeing more Porsche models in other games. SpeedManiacs acutely noticed that they were included in Assetto Corsa, which led to the discovery that the deal had come to an end.

As long as they make it to Forza, I’m good.
