Project Cars Delayed Until March 2015 to Avoid Competition
Slightly Mad Studios and BANDAI NAMCO have just confirmed that Project Cars will be pushed back to 2015, confirming the rumors from earlier today. The game will now be coming on March 17, 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
The reason behind the delay? Well, the company wanted to moved from such a competitive time of the year, ensuring the game will be a bit more polished and ready to go until next year. On some level, we do agree with their move, since it would be insane to release a new IP when there’s a bunch of triple-A established franchises coming out in the next months.
Here’s the official statement from published BANDAI NAMCO:
“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.”
