Once again, Project CARS’ release date has been pushed back.
Back in February we learned that Project CARS had been delayed until March. The game was originally supposed to release back in November of last year. Now we learn that the game has been pushed back again, now slated for a release in mid-May this year.
Head of Slightly Mad Studios’ Ian B this to say regarding the delay…
“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. 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.”
With the news of Uncharted 4 being delayed today, what’re your thoughts around games being pushed back? Where’s the line between polishing pieces to perfection and stretching the hype of their game, giving it a somewhat anticlimactic launch when it finally gets there? Do you think the wait will be worth it?
