Project Cars has been delayed until March of 2015, Namco Bandai has confirmed.
In a statement regarding the delay, the publisher explained that the developers needed more time to polish the game. He assured that the game’s final look would only benefit from the delay and that fans would receive the racing game they have been expecting so far.
“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,” Slightly Mad Studios boss Ian Bell explained.
It was also confirmed that another reason of the delay was to escape the highly competitive holiday season that’s coming shortly, one which the publisher believes would have proven harsh for the game.
“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 supposed to release in November, the same time when Ubisoft’s highly anticipated The Crew is listed to land in stores. In addition to that there are a couple of other names as well, including the next-gen version of GTA V.
Project Cars will now release on March 20, 2015 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
