- Stephen Hood, former President of Motorsport Games, has been named the new CEO after Dmitry Kozko stepped down. He served as President from 2019-2022, but left the company due to “different philosophies regarding the state of the company”. He has returned a year later in his newly appointed role.
- Motorsport Games is the license holder for NASCAR video games, but recent issues being blamed on the war in Ukraine among other things, has caused a new release of the video game series to be delayed severely. The last release was NASCAR 21: Ignition in October of 2021.
- Fans have been extremely upset with the issues surrounding the delays, calling for NASCAR to attempt to sever ties with Motorsport Games and find a new developer. There is no telling how this changing of the guard will affect the production of a new release.
