Maybe now all the versions of the game will be released at the same time!
Slightly Mad Studios’ stunning and gorgeous looking Project CARS has been highly anticipated for a while now, ever since the original Kickstarter, when the game was just going to be for the PC and Wii U. The game, which was originally set to be released this November, however, is already no stranger to delays, as the Wii U version of the game had already been announced as being delayed some time into 2015. And now, Slightly Mad Studios has confirmed that that delay will apply to all other versions of the game as well, as they confirmed that the game will be hitting some time in 2015.
“This delay has come about because a couple of other big games have announced they are shipping around the same time as our planned first date,” game director Andy Garton wrote on the official forums.
“We know it might be a little hard to believe but this would have had a very significant impact on our initial sales.”
In an official statement that they issued to Gamespot, Slightly mad Studios further explained the reasoning behind the delay.
“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.”
But hey, on the plus side, maybe the Wii U edition won’t be delayed and might actually hit at the same time as all the other versions of the game… right?
