Simteract they have decided to rename their upcoming title Urban Venture to Taxi Life: A City Driving Simulator.
Taxi Life: A City Driving Simulator was previously announced as an early access title coming to PC later this year. Thanks to the newly signed partnership with Nacon, Simteract adjusted the development plans to release the game on PC and consoles straight into 1.0 version in 2023, dropping the early access model entirely.
In Taxi Life, players will take on the role of a taxi driver working in the Spanish metropolis. Like in real life, stuff happens: traffic jams, harsh weather, bumpy roads, impatient passengers, and the occasional accident. In this driving simulation game, you take control behind the wheel to fulfill ride-hailing jobs around the city, taking passengers to their final destination safely and on time.
Marcin Jaśkiewicz, CEO of Simteract, said in a press release:
“We realized we had an ambitious project at hand and turn to Nacon as we worked very well together on Train Life. Our goal with Taxi Life: A City Driving Simulator is to show the skills of our talented team, building a representation of Barcelona on a 1:1 scale that truly feels real; a chance for people to get a one-of-a-kind city driving sim experience.”
