Ferrari Challenge DLC "may never see light of day"

Licensing issues to blame, System 3 tells us

System 3 has told CVG that extra download content planned for its PS3-exclusive racer, Ferrari Challenge, "may never see the light of day".

Releasing DLC was always on the schedule, said the System 3. "We were really excited about it because in theory it offers us developers the chance to keep working on little treats and make them available to loyal fans of the game."


But things don't always go to plan, evidently. "Unfortunately the realities and dead end streets of making licensed content available as a download, and then making it available in different territories have bitten us on the backside," the company told us.

"System 3 has tried and is still trying to make content available and we haven't forgotten the people who paid good money for Ferrari Challenge. The unfortunate reality is that the content we wanted to release, all of which has been sat around in completed form for months, may never see the light of day as DLC."

It's not going in the bin though. "Some of this has been used as a basis for new content in the up-and-coming SuperCar Challenge so thankfully it won't go to waste."

System 3 says it'll continue with efforts to release DLC for Ferrari Challenge, adding "we apologise that we haven't been able to give fans of the game more in recent months."

SuperCar Challenge is penciled in for a Spring 2009 release on PS3 only. Check out our hands-on preview here.
