MotoGP 17 will race onto PC and console in North America this July.

Milan-based developer Milestone has confirmed that the official game of the 2017 MotoGP World Championship season – called, appropriately enough, MotoGP 17 – will be released on July 11, 2017. The game is due for release in Europe on June 15.

The game includes the full roster of riders, teams and tracks from the 2017 season, as well as the Red Bull Rookies Cup championship. The game also features a revised career mode, new online multiplayer options and, for the first time, 60 FPS gameplay.


Here’s the game’s North American announcement trailer.

Matteo Pezzotti, lead designer at Milestone, says:

“We are working really hard to make MotoGP 17 not just a seasonal update, but an enjoyable game which is full of all the innovations which the fans of the series have asked for over the years. We will have a new competitive and thrilling online mode, a completely revolutionised career mode and much more. I don’t want to reveal too much, but I can assure you that you will see great things in the next few months. In the meantime, sit back and watch the beginning of the new season with us”

MotoGP 17 is coming to PlayStation 4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One and Windows PC. The physical edition will be exclusive to GameStop in the US, although available at other retailers in Canada and Latin America. If you pre-order the game you’ll also get access to the MotoGP 17 – Credits Multiplier, which will no doubt do something incredibly useful.

It looks good, but we’re still not 100% sold on the game’s “The future is in your wrist” strap-line, however.
