There must have been a factory recall on all car games as another one has just been delayed. Slightly Mad Studiosâ€™ Project CARS was supposed to be a heavy hitter of the holiday season, but the title will be delayed until March 17, 2015.
Itâ€™s a shame that so many racing titles are getting pushed back and/or come out to poor circumstances, like Driveclubâ€™s poor release. It appeared that we were going to have a blood bath amongst all the driving titles, but instead they will be pretty spaced out. While delays are disappointing, I donâ€™t think anyone would turn down additional polish for a title. Check out Head of slightly Mad Studios, Ian Bellâ€™s reasoning for the delay:
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 experienceâ€ said Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios. â€œWhilst 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. Weâ€™re eager for you all to see what weâ€™ve been working on in just a few months.â€
Project CARS is being developed by Slightly Mad Studios, published by Bandai Namco and will be released on March 17, 2015 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
