Project CARS Delayed Again!
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
It’s with a sad face that I break this news to you, as I’m sure many of you are eagerly awaiting the release of this game as much as I am. Of course, delays are nothing new to the world of computers games, but this isn’t the first time the game has been pushed back and we’ve obviously no way of knowing if it will be the last.
The games release date has now been moved to “mid-May 2015” and with no solid date there, that statement doesn’t fill me with confidence that the developers will be ready for release even then. Of course, this isn’t a bad thing, as the team are wanting this time to get the game polished for release. With many games being released broken these days, perhaps it’s not such a bad thing to wait a little while longer.
“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” said Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios. “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.”
The delay is a disappointment, but at least the developers are looking to make amends with the addition of some free content upon the games release.
