PGC London is now less than a week away and we’re excited to be welcoming over 2,500 attendees, representing over 900+ leading companies within the mobile, console, PC, blockchain, VR and AR gaming space.
We’re also excited to announce that over 90+ products will be showcased at the event, including among them one of 2024’s most promising mobile gaming releases in Racing Kingdom.
The pioneering, triple-A, racing game is expected to launch between Q1 and Q2 of this year, and will mark the debut release for its Istanbul-based developer, SuperGears Games. Formed in 2022, SuperGears Games has moved at a remarkably fast pace in developing Racing Kingdom. After launch, the studio aims to expand the project into a diverse gaming hub that will cover all conceivable racing genres to appeal to a wide-demographic of racing game enthusiasts.
It was our pleasure to speak with SuperGear’s CEO, Yasin Demirden, about their Racing Kingdom project, their expectations for PGC London 2024, and what lies in-store for the company during the year ahead.

PG.biz: We know that you are working on an ambitious title at the moment. Can you tell us what is unique about Racing Kingdom?
Absolutely! Racing Kingdom is, above all, a racing game universe that aims to redefine the gaming landscape. It's a mobile gaming experience that combines all racing game genres, offering next-generation graphics and ultra-realistic sound. With unique features like regional battles, the ability for players to design their own vehicles from scratch, and pet add-ons, Racing Kingdom is on a mission to provide players with a groundbreaking gaming adventure.
Scheduled for release on mobile devices in 2024, Racing Kingdom is set to begin with Drag racing, the most popular racing genre, as the platform's debut game. However, our ambition doesn't stop there. Our vision includes expanding the game library by adding other popular racing genres such as drift, off-road, and motocross, creating an unparalleled racing universe that brings together speed enthusiasts.
Moreover, Racing Kingdom is dedicated to shifting the social gameplay experience to the next level, fostering cross-game interaction and player-to-player trading, and ensuring that our community remains deeply engaged with Racing Kingdom as the epicentre of their gaming experiences. From core gamers to casual players, everyone can expect the unexpected and fall in love with Racing Kingdom.

Honestly speaking, it's a blast to see such a strong interest from prominent figures in the gaming world towards SuperGears and Racing Kingdom. We are not only creating a racing game universe but also a highly valuable IP that we are committed to building successfully and expanding.
