Kunos Simulazioni, stylized as KUNOS Simulazioni, is an Italian software development studio, that specializes in creating driving simulations. The company is headquartered at the ACI Vallelunga Circuit near Rome, Italy and was established in 2005 with the goal of developing software for varying needs from solutions for professional racing teams to consumer software.[1][2]

The studio's latest major title, Assetto Corsa, was released on 19 December 2014 on Microsoft Windows and received critical acclaim upon its release.[3][4] A console version of Assetto Corsa for Playstation 4 and Xbox One in partnership with publisher 505 Games was announced in June 2015 and was released in August 2016.[5]

The company was purchased by 505's parent company Digital Bros in 2017.[6]

In February 2018 the company announced Assetto Corsa Competizione, a new title offering an official Blancpain GT Series licence and slated for a Steam Early Access release in summer 2018.[7][8]
