Project Cars Release Date Delayed to March 2015

Namco Bandai and developer Slightly Mad Studios threw up a yellow flag on Project Cars today that will push the release date back several months.

The original Project Cars release date on PS4, Xbox One and PC was scheduled for November 18. That would have put it in stores just in time for Black Friday, but also during a period when many high profile games are entering the market.

The Project Cars release date delay now won’t put the game into our hands until March 2015.

“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,” said Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios in the release date delay announcement. “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.”

You have to admire Namco Bandai and Slightly Mad Studios for admitting that their game might get buried in November and it stands a better chance of success coming out in March, long after Drive Club and Forza Horizon 2 have had their day in the sun.
