Bandai Namco has confirmed that Project Cars is being delayed into next year.
The game was originally set for a November 18th launch in North America, with a November 21st date coming soon after for our European readers. Now, the game has been delayed to March 17 and 20, respectively.
“Our goal has always been to deliver a landmark title that encompasses the wishes and desires of racing fans from all around the world; something with features and content powered by the community that provide a truly unforgettable and pioneering experience,” Slightly Mad Studios boss Ian Bell said.
Coming from this, the delay is to help distance the game from the avalanche of games coming this holiday season, while also giving developer Slightly Mad Studios more time to make the game an even better racer.
“Whilst a tough decision to make, the change in release date allows the game the greatest chance of success and visibility, and the opportunity to polish the game even further to the high standards that both ourselves and our community demand and expect. We’re eager for you all to see what we’ve been working on in just a few months.”
Project Cars is set for a release across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For our Wii U readers, the game is coming to that platform as well, albeit at a later date.
