Project Cars Stalls Out, Coming Out Mid-May Now


You know the development cycle of Project Cars is rough when I struggled to find another car-related pun to use to describe yet another delay. Unfortunately, that’s not the biggest issue of the day, as Gamatsu reports that Project Cars is being delayed until mid-May. Even worse is the fact that there is no definitive release date provided.

“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,” Ian Bell, the head of Slightly Mad Studios, stated in a press release. “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.”

Just this year, Project Cars has been pushed back from March 17th, to both April 2nd for PC and April 7th on consoles and now into an unknown range of dates roughly 2 months from now. While it’s always great to see publishers and developers impose a strict level of excellence required in their bug-squashing process, the amount of times Project Cars has been delayed is concerning at the very least. With some free content in store for those who pick up the game, however, perhaps the tardiness in release could be forgiven.

Project Cars will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One first, with a Wii U release coming later in the year.
