Project Cars Delayed a Bit More
Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco have announced today that Project Cars will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC mid-May 2015, This new release date, slightly delays yet again the highly anticipated title from its last due date of April 2nd. The team attributes the delay to their dedication to polishing the game.
The team at Slightly Mad Studios, explained:
“Despite our long heritage and pedigree in making critically acclaimed racing games, Project CARS is by far the grandest and most intricately detailed of them all. Despite therefore the game being 99.9% complete, the remaining 0.1% attending to small issues and bugs has been tricky to anticipate. We’re absolutely dedicated to delivering a ground-breaking experience and by targeting mid-May fans can be assured that’s what they’ll receive” said Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios. “Again, we want to thank our fans for their support and patience on this matter. There’s a high expectancy from racing fans around the world that Project CARS is going to be an exciting new contender in the simulation racing space and we firmly believe gamers deserve it to be in its most complete and polished state when they come to play it on day one. And since the gaming community is our primary focus and has always been at the heart of the project during development, we would like to offer some free content to all players as compensation for this short delay and as acknowledgement of how grateful we are. This gift, that we’re sure is going to excite fans, will be available from day one and revealed shortly. Keep an eye on our website for more info.”
Even though it's a little disappointing having a hugely anticipated title like Project Cars being delayed again and again, it could prove quite beneficial in time that many AAA releases launch either broken or unpolished. Slightly Mad Studios certainly have massive expectations to meet with their title, as it has been touted as the best driving experience to be available in the market. There are many racing games out in the market today that deliver both simulation and arcade experiences, as well as some that provide a mix of the two. Graphics are of high value to the public, and Slightly Mad has been constantly teasing Project Cars visual fidelity, with trailers, gameplay footage and high-resolution screenshots.
It appears that Project Cars could deliver a very special and visually striking driving experience, come mid-May, and we can only hope that this will be the last delay of the title. We will bring you any additional information on Project Cars prior to its release as soon as it becomes available. You can read a bit more on Project Cars in our previous coverage.
