Project CARS Drifts to a May Release
In a press release published jointly by Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco Europe, the two announced that the release date for incredibly attractive racing sim Project CARS had slipped to mid-May, from the previously announced March release.
Ian Bell, head of Slightly Mad Studios, said that "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."
While this comes as no surprise for a racing game in development for around four years, this marks the third time that the release date has been pushed back. Personally, while I wouldn't mind a higher quality game that is continually delayed, anticipation is running high for the game, and many would like to see it released before long. In any case, we'll know more about the game when a release date is locked down.
