Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco have announced that the release date for their upcoming title, Project CARS will be pushed to early next year.
The game has now been re-scheduled to release on 20 March 2015. Slightly Mad Studios explain the reason for pushing back Project CARS was to “position the title away from the competitive holiday scene dominated by household names”, which also allows the team to have “additional time to extend and polish their ground-breaking” title.
Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios, Ian Bell mentions that the goal of Project CARS “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”.
“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 will release next year on 20 March for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, with Wii U releasing later. Are you upset by this push back or do you think this was a wise move? Let us know!
