Project CARS Delayed Further, No One is Surprised

Over the weekend, you may have heard rumors that Project CARS was (once again) in the throes of a delay. Publisher Bandai Namco did indeed release and official press release regarding the rumors, confirming that the date has been pushed back to avoid the over-crowding of the holiday season. And to improve the game. So they say.

Now, we’ll be seeing the game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in March of next year… but what about the Wii U version? Evidently that’s only going to be “sometime in 2015” with no firm answer and a vague promise about updates.

Here’s the press release:

The move positions the title away from the competitive holiday scene dominated by household names while affording the team at Slightly Mad Studios additional time to extend and polish their ground-breaking and accomplished next-gen racing experience that’s been created alongside a community of over 85,000 racing fans and real-life professional drivers.

“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” said Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios. “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.”

 

At this point, no one is particularly surprised about Project CARS’s delay, though this time there does seem to be a firm and logical reason for it. But with the Wii U version being not given any firm release date at all, it seems the wait will be substantial and we’ll be reporting on this one for some time to come…
