Wreckfest comes from Bugbear Entertainment, a developer that has been around for 16 years and is no stranger to making car games. They are the developer of FlatOut, FlatOut 2, and FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage. They also created Ridge Racer Unbounded as well. Wreckfest has come a long way since originally starting development in 2012 and marketing shortly thereafter as “The Next Car Game”. The project gained much attention and Bugbear started off its release path on Steam Early Access with November 20, 2018 recently set as a release date for Xbox One and PS4.
