Project Cars delayed to March 2015

 

Bad news for sim racing fans: Project Cars has been delayed to March 2015 for all platforms; PC, Xbox One, and the Wii U. This news was first posted on reddit and later confirmed by a press release. Delay was primarily to steer away from the competitive game release season; namely from Ubisoft, Activion and Rockstar. Positioning the launch in early 2015 will result in better sales rather having to face stiff competition in the likes of Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, Call of Duty etc. Moreover the developers, with the extended time period, will be able to thoroughly optimize and polish the game for all platforms.

In the press release Ian Bell head of Slightly Mad Studio stated:

“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. 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.”

Verdict

Project Cars was a dream come true for die hard sim racing fans, and first of its kind for the PlayStation 4. Unfortunately they will have to wait a bit longer before they can get their hands on it. On the bright side, the game will be hopefully optimized and equipped with more features and also have a successful game launch unlike by some game developers – I’m looking at you DICE.
