ETS2: Development update

SCS Software on developement update:

We owe you an update on some things happening now which are already frequently discussed in comments.

Truck brand licensing situation is clearing up, and we don’t have just good news. Despite years of trying to approach truck and trailer manufacturers, and in some case very extensive negotiations, we are far from securing all major truck brands. For a long time, we have been showing you in-development screenshots and movies with proper branding. It was a part of our negotiation strategy: to show truck manufacturers how public – our fans – react to real brands in our games. Fans’ reaction has been without exception always positive, people are excited about driving “real” trucks – but even that is not strong enough argument it seems. As you may have seen in recent movies and screenshots from the game finding their way on the Internet, we are now in the process of switching back to “Majestic” and “Valiant.” The destiny of another major brand still hangs in the balance – after two years of discussions, there are only precious few days to see if the negotiations are concluded successfully at the last minute.
