  8. First I thought it was a 1 April joke with one delay day....
    So, thank you so much about your hard work you and your team did in the SIM racing domain.
    IMHO, you gave access to lot of people at high level SIM racing product's at lower price.
    Good luck for your new life, maybe you'll have the opportunity time to time to fight on virtual track.

    Hmmm, i don’t know what to think about this. Stefano was important person to all Kunos racing titles and now he moved away. ...but this is a live and our personal happiness etc are more important. Thank you.

    Mhh... interresting, good luck.

    But what i would like to know is who is in charge now for the work/programming that Stefano did. I know that Aris and Fernando are the guys resposible for the physics.

    I also find a bit weird and don´t like it at all that this gets communicated over FB. I mean an official statement with clarification where we go from here would be nice and would kill all the wild speculations that will come up in this crazy Internet world.

    "Enough time was given in order to make the transition as smooth and painless as possible, and thanks to the amazing talents in there I am sure the company will continue to be a shining light in the world of simracing because of the amazing talents in the team."

    I'm sure that means that new programmers have been shown the ins and outs of the code so that work can continue as normal. He says "amazing talents" so it should be in good hands I believe.

    Stefano's involvement has been phased out gradually, he did a massive part of the original code for ACC but by this point his fields were broken up and taken on gradually by 5-6 different developers, either from the original team or relatively new guys like Fernando.
    It is very telling that it required a small team inside KS to take over his role. :)

    Oh dear...
    I follow Stefano and Kunos since old Drivingitalia.it forum.
    Stefano, Marco and Kunos are my records and my personal spark that light on my simracing passion, I still remember that feel of "unbelievably" when Netkar Namie started for my the first time on my pc (after endless attempts :D ).
    I met him @Misano 2018 for the first ACC's public demonstration, and was very very fun to see him so happy and so enthusiastic about that new project that now is become a (another) milestone in our hobby.

    This is so sad for me.
    Anyway i hope for all the best, really all the best for Stefano.

    Ciao e buona fortuna.

    Would have been "cool" change if not for the current circumstances.

    Thank you for all the Assettos Stefano. Stay safe and good luck in future endeavours!

    thanks panky, it was suspected that something was happening, stefano's distance from what was happening was striking. which is very gratifying - it obviously continues to work very well. so his legacy is well managed. trust kunos!

    In my opinion Stefano walks away from Kunos after joining Geoff Crammond and David Kaemmer on the podium of racing simulation geniuses. Because of them we can experience the thrill of pushing the most amazing machines ever created to the edge of adhesion on the most beautiful and challenging circuits on the planet. Thank you, Stefano. Assetto Corsa Competizione is one for the ages. Eager to see what comes next!

    Although I don’t know in person any of the Kunos guys I have a great admiration for their work and they all pass a sense of enthusiasm and professionalism about their projects like very few others do.
    As a team I’m positive that Kunos will continue to lead the way in development as they already do.
    For Stefano in particular, my biggest thank you for all that @Lord Kunos gave us and hats off for the amazing and admirable development achievements.

    Nonetheless it’s always a bit of a mixed feelings, sad to see any member of the team to follow his own path solo, although happy, at the same time, that Stefano continues very enthusiastic about his work with the will to start (once again) a new project of his own.

    Overall I wish all the best to @Lord Kunos new project, eagerly waiting for news about it and certain that Kunos success will continue, also very eager for v1.4, the new DLC’s and all the future developments that all the team will bring.

    To both Stefano and Kunos, wishes of the very best and all the success, very confident that both will give amazing new content that will be surprising and amazing as ever.
