Thrustmaster has just presented its roadmap for the year 2021 on its official Facebook page (link). The simracing products announced there should be particularly interesting for simracers. Among other things, a new controller for the Xbox and new hardware for flight simulators are to be released this year.
Thrustmaster Direct Drive Wheel Base for PC
The most important announcement should in any case be Thrustmaster’s entry into the direct drive market, which has been speculated about for some time. However, nothing has yet been published about possible prices, the strength of the system and other details. However, it can be read from the roadmap that the new base is designed only for the PC.

A wheel base was also announced, which is apparently to be compatible with both the PC and the two console families from Microsoft and Sony. The presumably matching pedals then round off Thrustmaster’s roadmap for the simracing sector.
