It would be extremely difficult to find new sponsors to fund development of a dedicated software in addition to covering the event costs.Also, having a different simulation for eSport would negatively impact the public image of the officially licensed game, that would be immediately demoted to kids' toy, in turn devaluing the ( very expensive ) license.
