GTRevival – New Name And Publisher Incoming

GTRevival - More Lister Storm Screenshots

It has been a while since we heard fresh news regarding developer Straight4 and its upcoming GTRevival racing game. The steady stream of info stopped back in October 2023.

However, it seems that the management did have something up their sleeves, as now it is rumored that soon Straight4 will reveal a new name for the title, and more importantly reveal a new publisher.

During a track day at the British Silverstone circuit, Straight4 joined the event lapping a Lister Storm GT driven by former Top Gear Stig and GTRevival Car Handling Consultant Ben Collins.

During the event, it was revealed that Straight4 will replace the German-Austrian Plaion, formerly Koch Media, with a new, yet-to-be-named publisher. Furthermore, Straight4 also confirmed that the GTRevival racing game will receive a new title name. More details will be revealed somewhere in July 2024.

Lister Storm GT

The Lister Storm GT is a homologated GT racing car manufactured by the British Lister automobile company. The production of the car started in 1993. The Lister Storm was designed by Geoff Kingston, who had previously worked on the Jaguar XJR-9 and XJR-11 Le Mans prototypes.

The car was based on a tubular steel chassis with a carbon fiber body. It was powered by a 7.0 L Jaguar V12 engine that produced 546 bhp and 583 lb-ft of torque. The Lister Storm was capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and had a top speed of 208 mph.

The Storm was a very successful racing car, winning numerous races in the British GT Championship and the FIA GT Championship. It also competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995 and 1996 but failed to finish both races.

At the end of 2022, Ian Bell (SimBin, Blimey Games, and Slightly Mad Studios) announced that he founded a new studio branding named Straight4Games or just plain Straight4. The new company announced a Strategic Partnership with German-Austrian media publisher and distributor PLAION, (formerly known as Koch Media GmbH). At this point, Straight4 had revealed they were working on a new racing simulation with the project name GTR Revival, now renamed to GTRevival which should become available for the PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S platforms.
