Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco have announced that Project Cars has been delayed to March 17, 2015 in North America and March 20 in Europe.
Bandai Namco stated the delay was to avoid “the competitive holiday scene dominated by household names.”
“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.”
Project Cars was originally scheduled to launch on November 18 this year. It will now be available in March on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A Wii U version is also planned for 2015, but no release date has been given.
