The studio's CEO, Ian Bell, made a surprise announcement on Twitter regarding an incoming console called the "Mad Box" (full tweet below).

Slightly Mad Studios is best known for the racing series Project CARS, but now the company is moving beyond the checkered flags and into the world of console development.

In further statements given to Variety, Bell went on to say that the Mad Box will be a standalone system in the same manner that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are. Speaking to Variety, Bell said the hardware would be the equivalent of a top-end PC in two years time.

The tweet alone makes a grand claim for "the most powerful console ever built", a term now saved for Microsoft's powerhouse, the Xbox One X - which is sure to see an even more powerful upgrade when the next generation of Xbox consoles launches, likely in 2020. Bell says both old and new games are welcome on the Mad Box. That said, the official Slightly Mad Studios account did retweet all of Bell's statements, seemingly lending credibility to verify Bell's account as real.

In a unusual twist of fate, Slightly Mad Studios is making a games console aimed at the 4K gaming market.

However, the studio has no plans to restrict developers to only develop for Mad Box Console. The company's website claims that its MADNESS Engine supports the world's "most advanced simulation games".

Bell also said they're now negotiating with component manufacturers, so they can't reveal many details about their upcoming console. He also expects the console to be "competitive with upcoming console prices". It hopes to have images of early design builds for the console in about four to six weeks, and it's in talks with investors interested in funding the project.

Slightly Mad are also working on a Project Cars game for pocket telephones, as well as still updating Project Cars 2.

Any platform is only as good as its games and if Slightly Mad can't build up a storefront that steadily delivers new games over time-and not just indies, I mean enthusiast-style shooters and RPGs and the like-the Mad Box will simply fail.
